Just like George Carlin, Bill Hicks was one of the few revolutionary comedians that America has ever given birth to. His lifework purpose was to use the medium of comedy as a way to infuse powerful ideas into people’s psyche so as to help them perceive themselves and the world from a whole different perspective, and lead them into a more beautiful, happy life.

Below are quotes from Hicks containing some of his most revolutionary ideas:

1. “We all pay for life with death, so everything in between should be free.”

2. “Watching television is like taking black spray paint to your third eye.”


3. “Folks, it’s time to evolve. That’s why we’re troubled. You know why our institutions are failing us, the church, the state, everything’s failing? It’s because, um – they’re no longer relevant. We’re supposed to keep evolving. Evolution did not end with us growing opposable thumbs. You do know that, right?”

4. “I ascribe to Mark Twain’s theory that the last person who should be President is the one who wants it the most. The one who should be picked is the one who should be dragged kicking and screaming into the White House.”

5. “Oh sorry, I was taking life seriously.”

6. “The whole image is that eternal suffering awaits anyone who questions God’s infinite love. That’s the message we’re brought up with, isn’t it? Believe or die! Thank you, forgiving Lord, for all those options.”

7. “The world is like a ride in an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it, you think it’s real because that’s how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it’s very brightly colored and it’s very loud and it’s fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question: “Is this real, or is this just a ride?” And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, “Hey, don’t worry, don’t be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride.” And we kill those people.”

8. “I loved when Bush came out and said, ‘We are losing the war against drugs.’ You know what that implies? There’s a war being fought, and the people on drugs are winning it.”

9. “I can’t watch TV longer than five minutes without praying for nuclear holocaust.”

10. “I never got along with my dad. Kids used to come up to me and say, “My dad can beat up your dad.” I’d say Yeah? When?”
