Уи́льям Ме́лвин «Билл» Хикс — американский стендап-комик и социальный критик. Своим юмором Хикс бросил вызов мейнстриму, стремясь, по его собственным словам, «просветить людей и заставить их думать самостоятельно». В своём творчестве, Хикс использовал непристойный язык и описывал себя как «Хомского с шутками ниже пояса». В своих выступлениях, Хикс обсуждал общество, религию, политику, философию и личные проблемы. Творчество Хикса было часто нарочито полемично, со значительной примесью чёрного юмора. Как в своих стендап-выступлениях, так и в интервью, Хикс часто критиковал потребительство, поверхностность, посредственность и банальность в средствах массовой информации и массовой культуре, называя эти явления орудиями, используемыми правящим классом для того, чтобы «держать людей в тупости и апатии».

Билл Хикс умер 26 февраля 1994 года от рака поджелудочной железы. После его смерти, творчество Хикса завоевало значительное признание и популярность. В 2004 году Хикс занял 19-е место в списке величайших стэндап комиков всех времён по версии Comedy Central. В 2007 году, в подобном же списке по версии британского телеканала Channel 4, Хикс оказался на 6-м месте.

Цитаты Билл Хикс

„Жизнь — это как катание на аттракционе. Пока вы там, вы думаете, что это реально. Такова сила нашего воображения. Вас бросает вверх, вниз, кружит по кругу, бросает в дрожь, всюду яркие цвета, музыка громкая, вам весело. Некоторые кружатся на этой карусели уже долго и задаются вопросом: «Это реально? Или это просто аттракцион?» Кто-то опомнился, вернулся на землю, и они говорят: «Не волнуйтесь! Не бойтесь! Это просто аттракцион!» И мы убиваем их…
«Заткните его! Я слишком много вложил в этот аттракцион! Застрелите его! Как же мои проблемы и страхи, как мой банковский счет, как моя семья? Вот моя реальность!»
А это просто аттракцион, а мы убиваем тех, кто говорит нам об этом — замечали? И мы позволяем демонам творить мерзости, но не это главное. Это всего лишь аттракцион и мы можем все изменить, как только захотим. Это наш выбор. Нет усилий, нет борьбы, нет работы, нет денег, нет сбережений. Это просто выбор, который мы делаем прямо сейчас, выбор между страхом и любовью...“

„I have taken drugs before and … I had a real good time.“

— Bill Hicks
Context: I know this is not a very popular idea. You don't hear it too often any more … but it's the truth. I have taken drugs before and … I had a real good time. Sorry. Didn't murder anybody, didn't rape anybody, didn't rob anybody, didn't beat anybody, didn't lose – hmm – one fucking job, laughed my ass off, and went about my day. Sorry. Now, where's my commercial? "Great Times on Drugs"

„Anyone dumb enough to want to be in the military should be allowed in. End of fucking story. That should be the only requirement.“

— Bill Hicks
Context: Here's how I feel about gays in the military: Anyone dumb enough to want to be in the military should be allowed in. End of fucking story. That should be the only requirement. I don't care how many push-ups you can do – put on a helmet, go wait in that fox hole. We'll tell you when we need you to kill somebody. I've been watching all these Congressional hearings and all these military guys and all the pundits going, "The esprit de corps will be affected, and we are such a mora …" Excuse me, but aren't you all a bunch of fucking hired killers? Shut up! You are thugs, and when we need you to go blow the fuck out of a nation of little brown people, we'll let you know.

„KILL 'EM ALL, ADOLF! ALL OF 'EM! JEW, MEXICAN, AMERICAN, WHITE, KILL 'EM ALL! START OVER! THE EXPERIMENT DIDN'T WORK!“

— Bill Hicks
Context: [Someone in the crowd yells "Freebird"] Please quit yelling that. It's not funny, it's not clever; it's stupid, it's repetitive, why the fuck would you continue to yell that? I'm serious. [The same man yells something back] "Kevin Matthews"; okay, what does that mean, now? Now, what does it mean? I understand where it comes from, so do you. Now, what does it all mean? What is the culmination of yelling that? [The same man yells back again] Jimmy Shorts: he's not here, he's not gonna be here. Now what? Now where are we? We're here at you interrupting me again, you fucking idiot. That's you. You see, we are here at the same point again where you, the fucking peon masses, can once again ruin anyone who tries to do anything because you don't know how to do it on your own! That's where we're fucking at! Once again the useless wastes of fucking flesh that has ruined everything good in this goddamn world! That's where we're at! HITLER HAD THE RIGHT IDEA! HE WAS JUST AN UNDERACHIEVER! KILL 'EM ALL, ADOLF! ALL OF 'EM! JEW, MEXICAN, AMERICAN, WHITE, KILL 'EM ALL! START OVER! THE EXPERIMENT DIDN'T WORK! Rain 40 days, please fucking rain to wash these turds off my fucking life! Wash these human wastes of flesh and bones off this planet! I pray to you, God, to kill these fucking people! [Someone yells out "Freebird" once more] Freebird. [Falls back] And in the beginning there was the word, Freebird. And Freebird would be yelled throughout the centuries. Freebird, the mantra of the moron. I'm Sorry Folks (1989)

„PLAY FROM YOUR FUCKING HEAAAAARRRRRRRT“

— Bill Hicks
Context: They say rock and roll is the Devil's music. Well, let's say that it is - I've got news for ya - let's say that rock and roll is the Devil's music and we know it for a fact to be absolutely unequivocally true... boy, at least he fuckin' jams! AHAHAHAHAHA - okay? Did you hear that correctly? If it's a choice between eternal hell and good tunes or eternal heaven and New Kids on the fuckin' Block? I'm gonna be surfing on the lake of fire, rockin' out! High fiving Satan every time I pass him on the fucking shore. Because, you know, if you play New Kids on the Block albums backwards, they sound better, you know. "Oh come on Bill, they're the New Kids! Don't pick on them; they're so good, they're so clean cut and they're such a good image for our children!" Fuck that. When did mediocrity and banality become a good image for your children? I want my children to listen to people who fuckin' ROCKED! I don't care if they died in a puddle of their own VOMIT, I WANT SOMEONE WHO PLAYS FROM HIS FUCKIN' HEART! "Mommy! Mommy! The man Bill told me to listen to has a blood bubble on his nose" SHUT UP AND LISTEN TO HIM PLAY. "The New Kids! Hi, we're the New Kids! We're so good and clean cu- [strange, loud satanic noises] We're so clean cut - SIEG HEIL! HEIL! HEIL! - A good clean country - HEIL! HEIL HEIL! [more satanic noises] FUCK THAT, I WANT MY ROCKSTARS DEAD!!! I want them to fucking play with one hand and put a gun in their other fucking hand and go "Hope you enjoyed the show!" [mimics gunshot to the head] YEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSS!!! YEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! PLAY FROM YOUR FUCKING HEAAAAARRRRRRRT! Ahem, I am available for children's parties by the way.
