Letterman Makes Amends For Past Hicks Mistake

by Dan McInerney on February 5, 2009

Just saw this. Classy move by Dave. A shame it had to happen in the first place, but at least Dave tried to correct the mistake. As for the routine, surprisingly tame. I wouldn’t bat an eye if I saw similar material today. It must have doubly hurt Hicks to know that he watered down his routine and they still rejected it (on his album the bit about Christians wearing crosses if followed by talking about walking up to Jackie Onassis with a little gold sniper rifle around your neck.)

I know it’s cliche, but Bill Hicks truly was a man ahead of his time. Thanks to Dead Frog for the heads up.
