* ExecutiveMeddling: Hicks' final appearance on ''The DavidLetterman Show'' was pulled entirely. Letterman apologised directly to Bill's family for this a few years ago and said it probably said more about him as a person than it did about the material, and then proceeded to play the routine in its entirety. Worth noting that Bill's routine had a bit that attacked pro-lifers, and a pro-life group had been one of the advertisers of the show; Bill concluded that was why it had happened.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Hicks was more well known in the United Kingdom than the USA.
* OneOfUs:
** He used the last few weeks of his life before he succumbed to cancer to reread ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings''.
** One of the tracks on ''Arizona Bay'' is titled "Clam Lappers and SonicTheHedgehog", where he enthusiastically declares that if interactive porn were to exist, he'd have high scores at "Clam Lappers".
-->''"And that was one weekend. That was ''Easter'' weekend, man!"''
* PlayingAgainstType: The posthumously-released album ''Lo-Fi Troubadour''. It's a collection of acoustic songs that Hicks wrote and recorded on the side. The songs are sweet, gentle, and basically as far from his comic persona as possible.
