I recently had this DVD shipped over from the States and it was well worth it. This is around an hour and a half of Bill Hicks performing in an intimate club environment in Austin, Texas sometime around 1989. He's young, he's on top form, he's very very funny. You've heard Dangerous and Relentless? Then you've heard 90% of this material. But for the other 10% - and to see Bill performing it to a responsive audience - makes this DVD total priceless magic to anyone interested in stand-up. The best Hicks DVD I've seen. Buy it.

This is pure brilliance, I was laughing so hard I couldn't stop at times! What more can you say? I can't wait to show it to my friends because I'm pretty sure that they, like me, had never heard of him before. If anything is 5 stars this is.

This show is one of the most outrageously funny stand-up shows, I have ever had the pleasure to witness. Bill Hicks was widely regarded as one of the great modern comedians, until he sadly departed a few years ago. I saw this on video a while back, and it still has the ability to make me cringe with laughter. Pure brilliance, and now it's on DVD!! It can't get any better! Any fan of stand-up comedy, and especially Bill Hicks won't find better footage of him about. 5 stars!!

Overused word eh? but TOTALLY justified in Bills case. Hicks takes stand-up onto a different planet, part preacher part philosopher, always hillarious and always RIGHT.

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.

Have you ever had that experience where you're watching a DVD of something you're a fan of when suddenly your girlfriend/ housemate walks in and wants to watch it with you? All of a sudden you realise that what you're watching is an acquired taste, and is not necessarily for general consumption.

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.

I think I own almost every available Hicks CD and DVD, and this stand up routine is awesome. "Brand new cadillac, thank you... brand new cadillac honey, thank you you're welcome... brand new cadillac honey... brand new cadillac honey, thank you, courtesy of the king." SO funny. Just watch, you will not be disappointed.

I am a massive Bill Hicks fan.....actually, I'm a massive comedy fan, and without Mr Hicks' input, comedy wouldn't have got where it is today. I'm not the sort of person who uses the word "genius" lightly, (in fact, I have reserved this word purely for Bill Hicks, Richard Pryor, George Carlin and Stephen Wright currently), but he really was.

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!

Quintessential performance from this much missed comedic genius. He will shock you but he will entertain you and make you laugh out loud. His best live DVD only slightly marred by the addition of annoying superimposed images.
