    5 out of 10 a masterpiece
    Tom from Wicklow, 07 Jul 2008
    i grew up on Bill Hicks. He is a true hero of the post 70's generation. He is insightful, actually he is pure genius. All others are just imitations and poor ones at that. He was a member of a cabal of political comedians (Hicks, Kinison, Leary etc). He actually played in Dublin & to this day i cannot believe i missed him,a minor personal disaster.Sadly both himself and Kinison have passed...but his true comedy genius lives on eg ringing a porn cinema and asking what the movie is about.BAWHAHA!

    2.5 out of 10 hmmmm.......
    Eugene from Kerry, 14 Aug 2007
    i rented this on the recommendation of a friend who claims that hicks is the funniest comedian of all time, and was the inspiration for dennis leary (whom i love). however after watching this, i would agree that hicks has his moments but they are not really on a par with leary or even for that matter tommy tiernan. an average compilation of his stand up routines with a mediocre and boring documentary about his life with interviews with his mother and family. all in all, not very inspiring.

    4.5 out of 10 Bill Hicks - Totally Amazing!!
    Una from Mayo, 30 Jul 2007
    Had heard of Bill Hicks before but never seen him do his stuff. Well worth watching!!! Interesting combination of 1/2 documentary and 1/2 live show from the Dominion Theatre. He was such an intelligent, educated and hilariously funny comic. Not for those who are sensitive to jokes about government, war, politics, sex - anything really. What an awful pity that he had to die so young.

    3 out of 10 Bill Hicks - Totally funny
    David from Dublin, 30 Jul 2007
    This isnt a full stand up show, its actually a documentary about the life & comedy of Bill Hicks, with outtakes from show. But oh man, in the excerpts that they show, he is funny. A classic satirist

    4 out of 10 Stand up at it's hardest
    JOHN F. from Cork, 09 Jul 2010
    Some of the goat-boy (you'll see) are a bit too close to the, ah, bone for some females but other than that Bill is on top form.

    What's it about....
    The tragic death of the outspoken comedian Bill Hicks, at just 32, cut short the career of a man who had proved himself as having one of the most distinctive voices in comedy. Uncompromising and outrageous Hicks was a sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll comedian. Passionate about his work, his comedy was built on conviction, setting him apart from all other stand-up comedians. This DVD contains two programmes: Revelations: Hicks' last live performance, a sell out show...
