Recording continues this week for the next release. But rather than posting details of how that’s going (nothing exciting to report), I wanted to feature a video of the late, great Bill Hicks.

I’m reading a biography about Hicks at the moment. An uncompromising performer, he was a comedian on the edge pushing the boundaries with a razor-sharp wit. Hicks went places most comedians wouldn’t, and still don’t – vigorously attacking taboos & taking on political and religious hypocrisy. Hicks died in 1994 at just 32 years of age – but his observation of society, politics and religion is still profoundly relevant.

The video above features some of his 1991 performance on HBO’s, One Night Stand.

Hicks was one of a kind. A man greatly missed.

Fires out.
