1.0 out of 5 stars No Cure For Bad Comedy, August 8, 2001
This review is from: No Cure For Cancer (Audio CD)
I bought this album because of the track, A*#%ole, which still raises a smile, but only just. A couple of years after buying it, I discovered a comedian called Bill Hicks, and I am here to tell you, Hicks is the MAN! He is the greatest standup, funnier because his material is deeper than 95% of other comics (Woody Allen, Lenny Bruce and Richard Pryor probably the exceptions). I don't want this to sound like an advertisement for Hicks, but if you're reading this and think Leary is great, Hicks will blow your mind; besides, the Gospel of Hicks needs to be spread. If you listen to No Cure For Cancer then listen to Hicks' 1989 album, Dangerous, you'll find many similarites. Even Bill knew that Leary had pillaged his material, and Bill had this to say of Leary: "I stole his act. I camouflaged it with punchlines, and to really throw people off, I did it before he did." ...

1.0 out of 5 stars Denis Leary? Try Denis Leach., August 8, 2001
This review is from: Lock N' Load (Audio CD)
I gave this one star because there were no half stars. After I read all those reviews where people were saying Leary is the greatest standup comedian ever, how funny and confronting he is, I had to say something. Sorry, but I've got a newsflash: the guy was a blatant thief, a pale imitation of THE greatest standup to have lived, the late Bill Hicks. Bill once said of Leary: "I stole his act. I camouflaged it with punchlines, and to really throw people off, I did it before he did." Leary had the taste to rip off Bill Hicks, but Leary didn't have the grace or talent to be funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Arizona Bay, July 3, 2001
This review is from: Arizona Bay (Audio CD)
This, the third album from Bill Hicks, has some great, great material here. Concise, acerbic, totally brilliant. Also something of a concept album, with Bill's guitar underlying his words. On the down side, the material is topical (as is the case with every Bill's album); that is to say, anyone who doesn't recall the events he's talking about won't get as much out of it as those who do remember. Irregardless, any independent thinkers will love it. The finest standup comedian ever.
