Bill Hicks is BACK on LETTERMAN

Life is only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves.” ~Bill Hicks

Bill Hicks' censored bit is on Letterman FRIDAY...

William Melvin Hicks
(December 16, 1961 – February 26, 1994)
Beloved American stand-up comedian...
Bill Hicks was a comedian in the 1980's and early 1990's who challenged mainstream beliefs, aiming to "enlighten people to think for themselves."[1] Hicks used a ribald approach to express his material describing himself as "Chomsky with dick jokes."[1] His jokes included general discussions about society, religion, politics, philosophy and personal issues. Bill's material was often deliberately controversial. In both his stand-up performances, and during interviews, he often criticized Media and popular culture as oppressive tools of the ruling class, meant to "keep people stupid and apathetic." (wikipedia)

FRIDAY NIGHT... January 30

David LETTERMAN will play Bill's censored bit.
Thank you Dave!

Letterman on Friday will be a historic show, the airing of the censored piece.

Censored...On October 9, 1993, Hicks was scheduled to appear on the Late Show with David Letterman for the twelfth time, but his entire performance was removed. See why! Bill Hicks' mother, Mary Hicks, will be on Letterman this Friday Night

Riverside Doubletree Lobby and/or Bar

Thank you Mr. Letterman. You are a class act.

Friends, Bill Hicks' last appearance on Late Night was censored. Dave is making it right this Friday.

"I'm gonna share with you a vision that I had, cause I love you. And you feel it. You know all that money we spend on nuclear weapons and defense each year, trillions of dollars, correct? Instead -- just play with this -- if we spent that money feeding and clothing the poor of the world -- and it would pay for it many times over, not one human being excluded -- we can explore space together, both inner and outer, forever in peace. Thank you very much. You've been great, I hope you enjoyed it."

~Bill Hicks

Thank you Mary!

We miss and LOVE Bill.

David Letterman is Brave, appeasing the haunting voice of Bill that echoes in my head...

"See we just had a misunderstanding. I thought we lived in the U.S. of A., the United States of America. But actually we live in the U.S. of A., the United States of Advertising. Freedom of expression is guaranteed? If you've got the money!"
~Bill Hicks, on being censored from 'The Late Show with David Letterman'

“We are the facilitators of our own creative evolution.” ~Bill Hicks

Dave is BRAVE? You're joking... right? Dave is a lot of things-- and I enjoy his show-- but brave isn't one of them. He's brave for airing this segment 14 years after the death of Bill Hicks? That's your idea of courage? Sorry, but words have very definite meanings.

I'm glad he's airing the segment, but it doesn't make him brave.
