The Greatest Comic Ever?
Fresh from the laffs of Carlos Mendias from the last posting, me though me post a couple of classic clips of the late, great Bill Hicks.
Many consider him the greatest comic to ever ply the trade. Better than Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy et al. The fact he passed on at the age of just 32 meant that his legacy is unsullied by shit sit-coms or movies.
Thing about him is that so often his monologues make complete sense & ye finds yerself nodding in agreement at the complete absurdity of things.
Fer those of ye unfamiliar with his work, me hopes these clips will spur ye to look further. The word 'genius' is often misused but not so in the case of Bill Hicks.
Have a good laugh this Merdeka weekend! Cheers!
