On 11/29/1992 at the end of a very successful sold out tour of the UK, Bill performed in London at the Dominion Theatre to a raucous, enthusiastic capacity crowd. This performance became his last recorded special, Revelations, which many consider to be Bill in peak form. When Revelations was originally broadcast on TV and subsequently released on DVD and LP the length of those was one hour and 13 minutes long, being edited to that more time-slot friendly length. But, the actual show that Bill performed that night was an epic, running just under two hours long. Now for the first time the entire audio of the show is being released as Bill performed it that night ......... All 43 missing minutes!!!! Born in Georgia but raised in Houston since the age of 7, this self-described ''Prince of Darkness'' was compelled to use the comedy stage as his philosophic soapbox. At 13, he would sneak out of his suburban house to hustle his way onto open-mike night rosters. In two brief decades, Hicks worked his way up the sweat-stained comedy ladder to national exposure on The Tonight Show, Late Show with David Letterman and an HBO cable special. Rolling Stone named him the ''hot stand-up'' of 1993. He was the hit of the 1990 and 1991 Just for Laughs comedy festivals in Montreal. Dead at 32, the enigmatic Hicks was admired, reviled and misunderstood. -The Montreal Gazette, March 28, 1994 1.You're In The Right Place2.Stop Making Jokes About Me3.We Live In A Dangerous World4.He Had A Gun5.I Can Relate On The Values Issue6.Snooker Needs Riots7.The Hooligans Are Loose8.Jesus, What Balls9.JFK (Was A Long Time Ago}10.It Seemed So Plausible11.Go Back To Bed America12.Put 'Em In The Movies13.What Could Be Worse14.Advertising Or Marketing15.Basic Instinct16.Goat Boy17.You Guys Are Weird18.War Against Drugs19.Humans Are So Neat20.God Made A Mistake21.You Gotta Play Miniature Golf22.Satan's Scaly Pecker23.It's Just A Ride
