Comedy Dynamics will release Bill Hicks: The Complete Collection box set with 12 CDs, 6 DVDs, and a photo book on September 11, and we’re helping them spread the word with this never before released clip of Hicks performing at Igby’s, Los Angeles in 1990, talking about smokers vs non smokers.
Comedy Dynamics has captured Bill Hicks’ legacy and packaged it all together. The Complete Set includes every commercially released album and special, over ten hours of unreleased performances pulled from Bill’s own collection of shows recorded over many years of touring, and a photo book with rare and never-before-seen photos.
Hicks’ cutting wit and acute social observations influenced everyone in comedy from Dave Attell, Joe Rogan, Patton Oswalt through David Cross, Lewis Black and Russell Brand and more. Hicks tackled a wide range of social issues including religion, politics, consumerism, the media, and popular culture in a dark and controversial way.
During the 1990’s, he toured the United States and United Kingdom extensively
while making a number of high-profile television appearances. On February 26,
1994 at the age of 32, he died of pancreatic cancer in Little Rock, Arkansas. In
subsequent years, his work has only increased in importance and influence, and he has developed a strong following among a broad range of audiences around the world. He was named the fourth greatest comedian of all time by London’s Channel 4 and ranked at 19 by Comedy Central.
