The master at work.....Compelling viewing.By a customer from the midlands , 20 Apr 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]Bill Hicks a true comedy genius tragically lost to cancer at the age of 32 in 1994.....Sorely missed. Articulate, tremendously intelligent, savagely angry, brave, brutally honest, dangerous. This was a guy with a message, not just a stand up comic. The earth is a poorer place without Bill. What would he have made of the world today?

A must for fans of Bill HicksBy SuperStu (1 review) from London , 15 Jan 2010This is absolutely brilliant. I have all of bills live recordings and this is right up there. includes the original 89 version, some great rare footage and lots of other great extras.
Must Rent!By Mallrat83 (5 reviews) from Cardiff , 14 Aug 2009Bill Hick's, i wish he was my dad! A great dvd! Well worth the space on ur rental list!
His humour, whilst it may offend some people if you take yourself too seriously, is second to none, and i would recomment this to anybody, even if you've never heard of him before! I only found out about him a few months ago, when someone new i worked with, said that this guy is my father because were both very similar, and since that moment, i've been watching anything i can find on him, because i have not found a comedian, so funny yet so brutally truthful about the world!
The Funniest Man Alive... (errrm)By SteveBent (99 reviews) from Tring , 24 Jul 2009Post humous assessment only ever turns up genii. Bill is more famous 15 years after his death than he ever was. For a topical comedian that really is remarkable.
I've been listening to his albums for over a decade and it was terrific to see the material from Dangerous performed. The added physical comedy only ups the ante. He strides, waggles and poses as insightfully as he cracks. The edit is a little dated. Very early 90's. But that all adds to the flavor of the thing.
Yes he's still relevant. Yes he's still sharp as any wit you care to name. For me the treat here was to see so much more of the man I've listened to and read about for so long. A thorough and well complimented disc.
And a very very funny stand up set. In any decade.
'Sane Man' aka 'Same as Relentless'By Burkkuss (2 reviews) from London , 08 Apr 2009
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideI love Bill Hicks, despite his misogyny & homophobia; however, I was quite disappointed after watching both 'Relentless' and 'Sane Man' because, alas, the material is more or less identical.
