Bill Hicks was an American stand-up comedian, social critic, satirist, and musician. Hicks' material was often controversial and steeped in dark comedy. My favorite quote: "Today, a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration—that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we're the imagination of ourselves. Here's Tom with the weather."
