Deep Exchange (Pangea Recordings). Review by Carl F Gauze.
Lewis Black asks, in the age of 45, What’s my job? on Black to the Future.
Complete Works (Comedy Dynamics). Review by Joe Frietze.
He called himself “Noam Chomsky with dick jokes”, but he was much more than that. James Mann looks at the new documentary on the comic genius and social commentator that was the great Bill Hicks.
Bill Hicks believed that great comedy provides an answer, and he tried to provide more than a few in his own work. A new book collects those answers on subjects ranging from gun control to pornography to movie criticism, by reprinting verbatim his unsacrificing routines, letters and other writings. Ben Varkentine looks at this gifted, cursed man.
Live 2002 (Sony Music). Review by Joe Frietze.
