Awesome / Bill Hicks

Go To

  • The "It's Just a Ride" speech is not just awesome, but heartwarming, too.
  • Bill's kiss-off to a girl that left him is one of his all-time great rants. Not that he's bitter or anything.
  • The blistering "The Reason You Suck" Speech he unleashed at a heckler during his infamous Chicago show may be one of the most hardcore in comedy history.
  • From his 1993 radio interview with Howard Stern, this is still relevant today:
    This idea of "I'm offended". Well I've got news for you. I'm offended by a lot of things too. Where do I send my list? Life is offensive. You know what I mean? Just get in touch with your outer adult. And grow up. And move on. Reasonable people don't write letters because... A: They have lives and B, they understand it's just TV. C: If they see something they don't like, something they do like might be on later. I've seen many comics I've hated. I've seen many shows that have offended me. I've never written a letter. I just go about my life.


How well does it match the trope?
