Comic's comic

I've never been a huge fan of stand-up comedy, just like I've never been a huge fan of Westerns, musicals or reality TV. But I'm always up for exceptional examples from any genre, and Bill Hicks was an astonishing exception to the humdrum rule of stand-up.

Today would have been Hicks's 43rd birthday, and if you're unfamiliar with his peculiar brand of genius, reading up on him and his material will hip you to the enormity of the loss his untimely death was to the world.
