Real Shit Part 2

Bill was arguably the Lenny Bruce of the 80s and 90s. You Tube it, laugh, cry, learn.

From the wikki thing..

Bill Hicks was a comedian in the 1980s and early 1990s who challenged mainstream beliefs, aiming to "enlighten people to think for themselves."Hicks used a ribald approach to express his material describing himself as "Chomsky with dick jokes."His jokes included general discussions about society, religion, politics, philosophy and personal issues. Hicks' material was often deliberately controversial and steeped in black comedy. In both his stand-up performances, and during interviews, he often criticized media and popular culture as oppressive tools of the ruling class, meant to "keep people stupid and apathetic."

    I watched the other clips as well and I laughed so hard it brought tears on.
