Bill Hicks Died 20 Years Ago Today
In 2009, I picked up a copy of Love All The People: The Essential Bill Hicks which had a profound effect on how I approached comedy, politics, and humanity in general. Although, apparently not profound enough because five years later I’m still writing this above a gallery of celebrity tits. Anyway, my point is Bill Hicks was a goddamn prophet, and to commemorate the 20th anniversary of his death (Which has literally left me in such an anxious, panicked frenzy for years that I would die of cancer in my early 30s that I subjected myself to a colonoscopy just last week.) Patton Oswalt published a forward he’d written last year to appear in a new edition of Cynthia True’s American Scream which never materialized. So here that is so hopefully some of you will be exposed to one of the greatest voices in stand-up comedy before we return to celebrities making wacky, wild faces! *sprays you with seltzer water* Bring the kids.
