Bill Hicks Live is the first official DVD release from the legendary and beloved comedian.
Since Bill died in 1993, his work has reached a new audience and he has become a powerful cult figure. For these fans who never had the opportunity to see Bill in person, this DVD will be a revelation. The DVD captures Bill at his very best, with three of his legendary filmed performances:
"One Night Stand" from the Old Vic Theatre in Chicago (approx 30 minutes)
"Revelations" from the Dominion Theatre in London (approx 65 minutes)
"Relentless", Bills breakout performance at the Montreal Comedy Festival (approx 70 minutes)
The DVD focuses on his incredible live act, with Hicks hilariously assaulting the stage and the audience with a non-stop cornucopia of insights into our twisted world; the government, the military, the police, religion, smoking, pornography, drugs and of course, for those of you who are getting antsy, a couple of dick jokes.
As a bonus, the documentary "Just A Ride" surveys Bills remarkable career with insights from his peers; including Brett Butler, Eddie Izzard, Richard Jeni, Jay Leno, David Letterman and Thea Vidale. (approx 45 minutes)
Total running time: approx 3.5 hours of pure, unadulterated Hicks.
If you really listen to what Bill Hicks is saying, it goes way deeper than just trying to be funny.
Not many people are aware his life and who he influenced but he had the respect of a lot of famous comedians for his honesty, insight, and fearlessness.
If your a diehard fan like I am you have probally seen much of the material on this DVD on bootleg versions.
I wasn't impressed with the compilation of footage found to make this, but Bill Hicks was certainly a very funny man nonetheless.Published 6 months ago by Kyle F
I have been aware of Hicks for a while, and I had seen a documentary about him. But I had never actually seen or heard his entire stand-up routine until I watched this DVD. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Neal Hock "bookhound78"

Bill Hicks was/is one of the masters of stand-up comedy. He was fearless in his subject matter, and pointed in his delivery. Not for the faint of heart, or the stuffed of shirt. Read morePublished on January 16, 2013 by Catie
