Bill Hicks Essential Collection Is Coming Next Tuesday

By

Bill Hicks was one of the best stand-ups of the last few decades until he tragically died of pancreatic cancer in 1994 at the age of 32. And now, has a new 2CD/2DVD set coming out next Tuesday the 14th which looks to be pretty essential to anyone wondering why the hell comedians love this guy so much. The set includes virtually all of his stand-up material, an entire movie (Ninja Bachelor Party) and a number of previously unheard pieces and songs. Here’s the full tracklisting:
