News and Notes
Before his untimely death from pancreatic cancer, Bill Hicks was perhaps the most incisively funny man on the planet. Spiritual brother to Lenny Bruce, Bill's subjects aren't your typical comic fodder. Drugs, crime, fundamentalism, the first amendment--it may sound more like a sermon than a set, and Hicks probably wouldn't disagree. Try to dig up a bootleg video and prepare to laugh hard.
