Imagine coming away from a comedy performance and having your view of the world changed, this was Hicks's genius not just the finest stand-up ever but one of the sharpest minds of the 20th century.... every THINKING person should hear a Hicks performance, and this DVD is a good place to start.
I would love to say that this DVD is for all tastes and is full of undiscovered gems. Unfortunately (if you've seen most of Bill's other stuff) it is not, although you will discover some interesting material which is not on the other DVD's (e.g. the George Michael routines and Bill's Elvis impersonation).
Even though The Essential Collection covers a lot of similar material to this, this DVD still has some worthwhile material for us fans, including a performance from the underground show 'Outlaws Get Religion'. The routines seem to plug the gap left between his early performances (1982-1984) and his post-Relentless stuff.
Two things to bear in mind though.
First 80% of the material he performs is similar to his later stuff and even the DVD admits it is Bill's later work 'in embryonic form' (e.g. the vulgar 'Dick Clark' routine became the 'Rush Limbaugh' routine on Rant in E-Minor).
Second is that this DVD is easily the sickest of them all, with the aforementioned routine colliding with the 'Debbie Gibson lesbian-paedophilia' skit.Read more ›
He had a way of questioning the world that was unnerving, his honesty was shocking and sometimes painful, but most importantly, he was side-splittingly hilarious.
I picked this release to review as, although I own all of his back-catalogue, this is my favourite, as it's the "rawest", as in, there's no slick presentation, it's literally just him and the microphone, and an audience of course.
If you want to see Bill at his most funniest and thought-provoking, this is the dvd for you!

Hicks' first DVD and a thrilling beginning. Compelling and combative, he provides gut-laughs galore.Published 8 months ago by Evan Strachan

It is worth it for the Hendrix / Debbie Gibson sketch alone!
A must have for any Bill Hicks fan, whether just finding out about him, or slightly obsessed like me :-)
Being a Bill Hicks fan i bought this Dvd 3 years ago. It features some of his early material which i don't remember seeing in any other previous production, the only dissapointing... Read morePublished on 18 July 2010 by Ohstiu
One of the most interesting things for me is the extra footage of Hicks in his drinking days. He is up-tight, stagey, self-conscious and arrogant. Sober he is better.Published on 24 Nov. 2008 by Ritz Woodbine
