Bill Hicks Concert on XM This Friday
Of course, Bill’s dead, so it’s not “live”. But it’s still cool:
Bill Hicks Live: The “Revelations” Concert
XM Comedy – XM 150
10PM ET (Friday, Feb. 25)
XM Comedy is pleased to present the genius of the late Bill Hicks in his “Revelations” concert from the new DVD Satirist, Social Critic, Stand-Up Comedian, uninterrupted and uncensored.
If you don’t know who Bill Hicks was, you should. Why? Because he was a fucking genius, that’s why.
From the Wikiquote page of Hicksiana:
A lot of Christians wear crosses around their necks – you think when Jesus comes back, he ever wants to see a fucking cross? Kind of like going up to Jackie Onassis with a rifle pendant on, you know?
I’ll show you politics in America. Here it is, right here. ‘I think the puppet on the right shares my beliefs.’ ‘I think the puppet on the left is more to my liking.’
The worst kind of non-smokers are the ones that come up to you and cough. That’s pretty fucking cruel isn’t it? Do you go up to cripples and dance too?
What do atheists scream when they come?
We always kill those good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok. Jesus murdered; Martin Luther King murdered; Malcolm X murdered; Gandhi murdered; John Lennon murdered; Reagan…. wounded.
