    Fortunately, in case you missed Bill the first time around, you can hear this guy perform most of his act.

    He was more of a philosopher with dick jokes sprinkled in.

    Denis Leary is much funnier than Bill Hicks.

    Bill Hicks became really popular again after the Second Gulf War because a lot of his stand-up from the early 90s dealt with what a sham the First Gulf War was and George Bush Sr. being Satan's bitch.
    You could literally play his old stand up like he had just performed it in 2005, it was so mysteriously relevant to the current situation we had with Bush Jr.

    He appealed to me at the time because I was about 17-18 and I'm into the whole conspiracy theory/chain-smoking act which was sadly stolen by Leary although the two remained good friends.
    They even had to cut out a joke from his roast on comedy central:

    I got the impression comedy was his out-let for beliefs and cared more about his "act" trying to get you to think instead of laugh which is why I always enjoyed his performances. There really aren't any stand-up comedians like him that dealt with such heavy topics. You could tell the jokes were just to keep the crowd in they're seats.

    He was a funny comedian but definitely not in my top five.

    Top five would have to be

    Carrot Top
    Larry The Cable Guy
    Carlos Mencia
    Will Ferrell
    Any ventriloquist.

    All funnier than Bill Hicks.

    People didn't complain when George Carlin got political.
