Bill Hicks – Play from your heart

Bill Hicks is a Texas legend. He’s a deep inspiration to me and to many of us who do this artlovemagic thing. Bill pushed the edge of what could be done through stand up and dared his audience to go to a smarter place through sharp, biting comedy.

There is a rare opportunity to see an excellent new documentary about Bill right now. It has one Dallas booking on schedule only, and only through April 28th. It is playing at the Texas Theater in Oak Cliff.

If you have a love for stand up comedy, I really think you should see it. And check out some Bill stand up routines as well. You can certainly find many at youtube and there are a few excellent dvds available, particularly Bill Hicks Live.

American The Bill Hicks Story. The movie’s great. They had incredible access to people who worked and lived with Bill. And rare footage as well. Bravo to Texas Theater for bringing this in.
