Bill Hicks

This
Josh Homme writes the greatest lyrics EVAR:
"I wish we could get away
Drink wine and screw"


"Nicotine, valium, vicodin, marijuana, ecstasy, and alcohol
C-C-C-C-Cocaine!"


"I wanna lick you too much"

Bill Hicks, and he was hundreds of times better than Carlin. I always found Carlin too bitter, and too nihilistic; whereas Bill - through his biting and angry routines - there was always a hope and a alight which Carlin never had.

Oh, and Stewart Lee, been described as the British Bill Hicks.

.....Not really.

Sure, in Carlin's later years, when he was more cynical, and preach-y (not that it was a bad thing, but it's true.).


But, in terms of his first five stand up album from 1972 to 1975, THAT'S his best work ever, and I have never found another comedian that can top those albums.

I like those because they're fun, they're more upbeat, and they still make you think a little, unlike his later work that was a bit more angry, slightly upbeat, and was more of a mind opening experience.


Like I said, I love it all, Carlin is my #1 favorite comedian, but nothing will ever top those first five albums.

There's nobody like Carlin. Not even the incessantly overrated Bill Hicks. Complaints and Grievances got me through so many horrible nights at work.

Bill Hicks deserved to die of unfunny. He's clever and makes good observations, but he's not funny. There's nothing about what he says that inspires even a chuckle. The best comedians are those that can, you know, make comedy. Bill Hicks practically just stands on a soapbox. Carlin, Chappelle, Chris Rock, Louis CK, Adam Carolla, etc. They make me laugh and think simultaneously.
