Bill Hicks WAY Ahead of His Time on ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’

Sadly, we missed the screening of  the Bill Hicks documentary “AMERICAN: The Bill Hicks Story” when it premiered in LA last September. But we finally got a look at the film last night and found it a refreshing reintroduction to one of America’s greatest comics. We were especially amazing to see how much of Hicks’ material is beyond relevant today, more than a decade later. His bit on “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” above should be required viewing for…say, every politician in America. Especially John McCain.

More info on the film here.
