By an absolute mile is my favourite comedian....NAY! My favourite person who ever did live.

anyway, one of his stand-up shows is on BBC FOUR at 23:40...watch it. Currently watching the documentary about his life on the same channel.

RIP dude!

such a shame he died so young...I would happily bet on the fact that if he was still alive and perforiming today with his fanbase growing and growing, the world would be a better place. There just aren't comedians like him, and i'm sure people would be more open to his kind of ideas if it was in comedy form, instead of watching some hippy rant on in some boring speech.

100% agree the guy is a legend! shame he died as he would be ruling the comedy scene right now!
No1 can come close to his humour and knowledge of the world.. on a side note joe rogan aint too bad, his dvd he released is wicked! (not the talking monkeys one, he did an older dvd that talked about our civilisation being dumbed down over time. well worth a gander......stooooooole)

exactly, don't get me wrong i still like those kind of comedians, it's just pure entertainment, where as with bill you could learn something. And he wasn't allways a MAJORLY funny comedian, but still one of the best, which is odd in a way.

Hicks was a legend, as was George Carlin. Comics who actually made you think... If you haven't heard of Carlin check this vid out:
