Love All the People: Letters, Lyrics, Routines

Overview

In 1993, network executives abruptly cut the final appearance of comedian Bill Hicks - a scathing tirade of digs on the Pope and the pro-life movement - from an episode of The Late Show with David Letterman. His banning from the show, along with a profile in The New Yorker by veteran writer John Lahr, catapulted Hicks to national prominence. Just months later, at age 32, he died of pancreatic cancer.

Overview

In 1993, network executives abruptly cut the final appearance of comedian Bill Hicks - a scathing tirade of digs on the Pope and the pro-life movement - from an episode of The Late Show with David Letterman. His banning from the show, along with a profile in The New Yorker by veteran writer John Lahr, catapulted Hicks to national prominence. Just months later, at age 32, he died of pancreatic cancer. Now available for the first time are Hick's most critical and comic observations, gathered from his stand-up routines, diaries, notebooks, letters, and final writings. This collection features his controversial humor and witheringly funny attacks on American culture, from its worship of celebrity and material goods to its involvement in the first Gulf War. Love All the People faithfully traces Hicks's evolution from a funny but conventional stand-up comedian into a fearless and brilliant iconoclast.

    Source Material/Essential for the Bill Hicks scholar

    This book is a resource. I was able to read THE LETTER Bill wrote to Letterman and not just read about what he wrote. If want source material this is your book. This book gave me greater insight into the mind and spirit of Bill Hicks. It has poems and written words of his I have found no place else, and I have looked.// I read the reviews below. Yes, some of the show transciptions repeat themselves--This is Bill. He used some routines in many different contexts. And, if you look closely, there are differences. And, nobody ever criticized the Grateful Dead for singing a song twice.// Today is Bill's Birthday// Happy 43rd Birthday Bill// December 16, 1961, Bill Hicks was born; His words live on: '...like many kids growing up on a steady diet of westerns, I always wanted to be that cowboy hero-that lone voice in the wilderness fighting corruption and evil wherever I found it and standing for freedom, truth and justice. And, in my heart-of-hearts, I still track the remnants of that dream wherever I go in my never ending ride into the setting sun.'// Is Bill Hicks still relevant? Consider this fact and then read Bill's quote from 11 years ago: *Media Week reported that in 2004, 99.9% of complaints about TV, other than the Super Bowl, came from one source-Meidaweek.com, December, 2004// 'The truth is, the majority of people are very reasonable. They don't write letters when something offends them on TV. `Cause reasonable people know that IT'S JUST F -kIN' TELEVISION! And not only that, reasonable people HAVE A LIFE!'[note: 'kin' above is for BN standards] -Bill Hicks 1993 Quoted from Love All The People// Help Bill's ideas evolve. Buy this book. Thank you for your consideration.
