Audience Reviews for Bill Hicks: Revelations
The legendary stand up routine he performed at the London Dominion, this is the epitome of Bill Hicks and everything he stood for. As one of his contempoaries once said, Hicks has an unflinching honesty born of not having any networks or studios to answer to, and he was far more interested in exploring the hypocrisies and injustices of the world he lived in than filling his pockets with what he saw as blood money. It contains his tirades against the US invasion of Iraq in which he likens his government to Jack Palance in Shane; "Pick up the gun!", his bile soaked assault on advertising and marketing executives. "Kill yourselves. No joke here, really. Seriously, kill yourself, you have no rationalisation for what you do, you are Satan's little helpers. Kill yourself, kill yourself, kill yourself now." and the infamous "suck Satan's cock" routine. Hicks had an uncompromising honesty that is sorely lacking in this day and age, and as great a tragedy his death was, it's a comfort that a young, angry and incorruptible Hicks will forever be heard. The closest thing to a comedy rock star there has ever been.More
