Ron Shock and the Bill Hicks Chronicles

Ron Shock has recorded a series of Youtube videos with his memories of Bill Hicks and the Comedy Outlaws, the group of Houston comics that included both of them. Ron Shock is one of the funniest comics on stage today and has been for a long time, and of course Bill Hicks is one of the all-time greats. They’re really interesting videos, at least to me. Videos below the fold.

And just for fun, here’s Hicks telling the story of the worst gig ever. I’ve had a rather similar experience, just replace LSD with tequila.
