4.0 out of 5 stars Timeless Material, 17 Oct. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bill Hicks: Totally Bill Hicks - It's Just A Ride/Revelations [DVD] (DVD)
Many people have said "Hicks wasn't that great - its Kurt Cobain syndrome". Hicks is still popular now not because of his untimely death, but because of the truth behind his ideals and his comedy.

Many people complain that there is a very dark side to his material - the "goat boy" routine for example - it's genius is in the darkness - and all of those wondering if he's being serious with this material are doing exactly what he intended - thinking about something instead of taking it at face value because society conditions us to.

Anyone doubting the passion and the genius in his routines should ask themselves: "How can anyone who does 250 comedy gigs a year, for three YEARS running, not be good at what he does - and more importantly, not be at least a little bit right?

Personally i'd rate it five stars, practically speaking most people are unable to escape that societal conditioning so will find a portion of his material disturbing rather than funny - so 4 stars it is.
