    Well, after a night of Maron, I woke up to watch this>

    Cults

    Time for quiet now.

    I really wish he was still around today. I can’t even begin to imagine what he’d make of things in 2014.

    Not explored Bill Hicks enough but a big fan of Marc Maron.

    Bill Hicks was the first person who I saw labelled as a “comedian” but was so much more, and often less funny than just mind-blastingly thought-provoking.

    I tend to put him, Stanhope and Carlin together because they all changed, in a matter of moments, how I thought about living life. And how I looked at the world and people.

    Just starting with Chris Morris now.

    Indeed. I’ve always been a bit obsessive over stand up comedy, even as kid. When I discovered Hicks I realised just how important stand up comedy can be. Certainly Hicks and Stanhope reflected how I felt about life and gave me new concepts to consider.

    I spent 10 mins on the Dodgems with him during the Edinburgh Festival. He was quite rubbish but outstanding on stage in the Meadows Comedy Tent later that evening. I saw him several times subsequently and remained a lifelong fan.
