American Scream: The Bill Hicks Story
Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor, Andy Kaufman -- add Bill Hicks to that list of brilliant, fearless comics. Just emerging from underground cult status when he died at age thirty-two, Bill Hicks spent most of his life making audiences roar -- and censors cringe -- with biting social satire about everything from former president George Bush to rock stars who hawk diet Coke. His nervy talent redefined the boundaries of comedy in the '80s and won him a list of admirers that includes John Cleese, George Carlin, and Thom Yorke of Radiohead.
This posthumous biography reveals for the first time what made Bill Hicks tick -- what made him laugh, what pissed him off, and what he saw as his ultimate mission: to release people from their prison of ignorance. From his first comedy gig at Bible camp to his infamous cancellation on The Late Show with David Letterman, Cynthia True portrays an artist whose outrage, drive, and compassion fueled a controversial body of work that still resonates today.

Review: American Scream: The Bill Hicks StoryUser Review - Goodreads
Great research about the short life of comedian Bill Hicks, but the writing style was terrible. I don't like starchy, academic biographies, but this one could have used a dose of that. Time to go to YouTube and watch some of Hicks' routines.
Review: American ScreamUser Review - Fraser - Goodreads
A good solid introduction to Bill Hicks, but you just cannot beat the real deal in action through source material. I enjoyed the book but nowhere near as much as "Love all the People" and subsequently watching and re-watching his recorded shows. Read full review
