    Best comedian I ever saw in a comedy club. Brilliant.

    I saw Carlin in 2000. A huge fan of Christopher Hitchens..but Bill Hicks was something else. No one has transformed my understanding of who I am and what I perceive us to be as much as Bill Hicks. The most vulgar, lovable, intense, funny, reasonable human mind I've ever shared this consciousness with.

    you were very lucky to see him.

    I had never heard of Bill till someone turned me on to him during the early days of SFN.

    To who ever that forgotten poster was, I owe you a debt of gratitude.

    I was very lucky. Both times at Caroline's on Broadway. Right up front, under his nose.
    I had that douche Donnie Wahlberg sitting next to me, wearing an eye patch. I guess he liked the New Kids on the Block stuff.
    I also saw him right before he died. He was brilliant - just vicious and hysterical and SPOT ON - and then he was gone. I still miss him.

    I still get chills when I listen to the album where he jokes about dying of a brain tumor.

    I wonder if he would have gone the Robin Williams route. I hope not. I'm glad we'll never know. Ugh.
    (I need cheering up - someone blast on Beefus or show me a picture of Wiggy's brillo head)

    Never. I don't see it in his personality. He built his sole persona on coorperate bashing and how media and products enslave. Definitely the real deal. His speech was powerful enough to be taken care of, a legitimate threat. Uses layman with comedy so the sheep open their eyes. England tried to do the Robin William route with him but it was shot down swiftly. This guy just didn't care. Told it like he saw it.
