The Most Socially Relevant Comedian of All Time: A Bill Hicks Compilation

I came across some Bill Hicks videos on YouTube and was struck by how relevant his comedy is today.Though he has been dead for almost twenty years, he addressed many issues that society is grappling with now. Many will say George Carlin holds the title of “Most Socially Relevant”, but considering that George had a much longer time on earth to grace us with his presence, I feel Bill’s impact was cut short way too early and not fully realized. Instead of opining on the brilliance of his comedic talent and how it relates to our lives today (though I encourage you to do so in the comments, if you so wish), I’ll simply let it speak for itself. Enjoy :)

Drugs and Evolution

Religion

Teenage music acts and music in general.(Rick Astley mention in the second vid :)

Politicians

Conspiracy Theories

War

Below is a full version of “Revelations”, many consider it his best work.

  1. I think about his relevancy all the time. There are times where he’s talking about Bush Sr. and it could easily apply to Bush. My favorite comedian of all time. Stumbled =)

  2. My experience has shown me that the people who are exceptionally good in business aren’t so because of what they know but because of their insatiable need to know more.

  3. Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any assistance is very much appreciated.
