Билл Хикс

Дата рождения: 16. Декабрь 1961
Дата смерти: 26. Февраль 1994
Другие имена: بيل هيكس, 比爾·希克斯, Bill Melvin Hicks

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 смерти Хикса его творчество 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.

„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…“

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

—  Bill Hicks

I'm Sorry Folks (1989)
Контексте: [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 have taken drugs before and … I had a real good time.“

"Great Times on Drugs"
Flying Saucer Tour Vol. I (2002)
Контексте: 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?
