Celebrating Easter ? (2020), I thought it appropriate to “Resurrect” a small taste of what Bill Hicks’ had to say about Christians, their Lord and Savior (Jesus Christ), and their relationship to God, Guns, and America. The First Holy Day (After Trump, Amid Covid-19). Of course Bill is still dead, but, as always, his spirit is still alive, well, and still relevant. Here’s a mix of Bill’s religious material and a selection of his favorite music, including Suicidal Tendencies, King Missile and Tool (fronted by Bill’s friend Maynard James Keenan), who sampled and eulogized Bill (“Third Eye” and “Euology”) on Tool’s 1996 album, Aenima.

BillHicks
It’s Just A Ride
The first documentary film about Bill, produced after his death. Includes interviews with many of Bill’s peers, including David Letterman apologizing for having Bill’s last Late Night performance stricken from the show.

UnRESURRECTED
vs. CBS
(Easter 2020)

Bill Hicks’ 12th Late Night performance was scheduled to air October 10, 1993, soon after David Letterman had moved to CBS, from NBC. At the time, CBS was airing a series of pro-life “promotional” ads. In what would be his last David Letterman performance, Bill included, as he always did, material inspired by his Southern Baptist (Houston, Texas) upbringing. It was most likely this that CBS’ “standards and practices” deemed Bill “inappropriate” for its “middle America” audience. 
    The Last Word
The (Unaired) Letterman set, that CBS advertiser, a group of right-to-life Christians, didn’t appreciate it running alongside their message from God.
