AMERICAN: The Bill Hicks Story

4.8.11

If you've heard of Bill Hicks you got to watch this 2009 documentary. If you haven't heard of him, seriously, you got to find out who William Melvin Hicks is. You can start with this performance from 1993 in London.
"The world is like a ride in an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly coloured and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question: "Is this real, or is this just a ride?" And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, "Hey, don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride.""
-- Bill Hicks
