The world is like a ride in an amusement park.

"And when you choose to go on it you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly coloured and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question: "Is this real, or is this just a ride?" And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, "Hey, don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride." And we kill those people."

William Melvin Hicks was one of the greatest stand up comedians to ever exist. His humor was grotesque and in your face, while the topics he spoke about rang true. His acts were often about religion, war, abortions, non-smokers, scum bag politicians, drugs and other things. Unfortunately, Bill left our world on February 26, 1994 due to pancreatic cancer.

Back on October 1st, 1993, Bill Hicks did his 12th act in front of David Letterman's Late Show, but for some reason Letterman cut out the entire act from the broadcast. Have no fear! Letterman decided to air the whole act and apologize to Bill Hicks' mother, Mary Hicks, last night (Jan 30th).
Here are some videos of him:

You are free to do what we tell you!
Drugs and music
Fundamentalist Christians

Now, some of you may be asking "Why is Denis Leary a star while Bill Hicks is unknown?" It's because there's no cure for cancer.
