Superb! I'm a huge comdey fan and bill hicks took stand up to a another level. This outlook on life and belief's/views on drugs, politics, religion, music, advertising, marketing and media are directly from his heart. You get a feeling when you watch bill hicks that he makes you want to go and talk about why we as a human race have still so much to learn about each other and at the same time you know there's people that will reject certain views due to being closed minded because they may have been too afraid of experimenting with they mind, body and soul. If we all shared and tried to stop feeling better than another person because we have a better job or a bigger house or more money than certain people, we wouldn't have the need to feel insecure and isolated from society because then you become society. Peace and love xx

Revelations is probably Bill Hick's best show on recording, so with the documentary this should be the greatest Bill Hicks DVD out there - but it isn't.

Revelations is seriously let down because the first 10 minutes or so of this issue have been badly edited, so rather than Bill coming on stage and the comedy keeps rolling, instead what we get is Bill on stage - cut to 30 secs later - cut to 30 secs later, etc. We never get to see Bill's feelings on leaving LA "Bye, Bill, we'll be good!" and the choppy editing is annoying.

But worst is that for some unfathomable reason, whoever edited Revelations on this DVD release also decided to fade in images from the background during Bill's performance. So we get to see a burning US flag suddenly fill the picture, and at another point, the head of a baby with accompanying child noises. It's distracting, annoying, and entirely pointless.

If you really want a recording of Revelations to view, don't buy this release - instead get a standalone which hasn't been butchered the way this one has.

You read that title right.
It's criminal that there are so few 'real' Bill Hicks performances available, but Totally Bill Hicks is the best of the bunch. The DVD contains a featurette about Hicks' life, and a live show recorded in London just a few months before his untimely (understatement) death.
The featurette 'It's Just a Ride' is brilliant. It plays before the live show on the DVD, and strangely enough, I find myself watching it the whole way through every single time. Aswell as showing us some brilliant bits from other shows (I absolutely love his explosive rant at commercial pop music) we get to hear from the people who knew him best, including his close friends, colleagues and even his family.
Revelations, the show itself, is pure Bill Hicks at his best. As Jay Leno also mentions in the featurette, it's noticeable that Bill was in a slower but more productive phase. That's not to say he puts on a dull performance here; he is angry, loud, pissed off, and not afraid to say or do what he wants.
What's sad is that while Bill does joke about things like the Persian gulf war, you can tell it was a subject that genuinely saddened him. He dreamed of a peaceful, explorational world (where we all make money doing nothing) yet was stuck in one of utter banality that was killing itself.
Bill Hicks was and still is an utter inspiration, in terms of being who you really are, in terms of taking what you can from the world, and in understanding everything you want to understand. The world is a colder place without Bill Hicks. But then again, it's just a ride.
