5.0 out of 5 stars
Straight from the hip, 20 Dec. 2003
From learning about the real Bill Hicks via the informative documentry from Bills family and friends to one of the greatest stand up routines ever seen!! Bill tells it straight, unafraid to ruffle a lot of feathers in the worlds of politics, religion and censorship to every day things such as television. We find out Bill lived life to the fullest honing his stand up routines in comedy clubs when we at the same age were tucked up in bed or finishing school work. Simply a genuis a perfect mix of comedian and rock star that along with Lennon, Hendrix, Morrison and Marley from the music world through to the comedy world of Belushi, Candy and Farley all were lights taken away from us much too early. Take a ride and be prepared to think of things from a truly enlightened perspective that will have you thinking long after the disc finishes. Bill says "Its just a ride" and I say "What a ride!The greatest rollercoaster the world has ever seen!"
