The best stand up comedy album ever!!!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Rant In E-Minor (Audio CD)
As the shadowed figure stepped on stage, cigarette in hand, and an arsenal of savage jokes directed at everyone from pro-lifers to the pope, you know that this figure is on a mission. Yet that mission came to an end 11 years ago. So here it is, Bill Hicks at his best. With hilarious antidotes on the Easter (I've read the bible, I can't find the words "chocolate" or "bunny" anywhere in that f***ing book), childbirth (any man who says he wants children is no longer a man but a pussywhipped freak of nature) and politics (this is politics in America; "I like the puppet on the left," "I think the puppet on the right is more to my liking," "Hey, wait! There's one guy holding up both puppets!"). Anyone who likes stand up comedy should own this album. This is someone whose jokes were meant to kill!
Good follow-up purchases would be Flying Saucer Tour Vol. 1 and Dangerous. You won't regret it.
