This Friday evening Late Night with David Letterman will air the infamous never before broadcast 1st October 1993 performance by Bill Hicks. One of the guests on the show that night is his mother, Mary Hicks.
It's a big deal, not only because the editing of his entire performance from the show, caused Hicks much consternation, but because it'll be the first time in a long while that his material will have reached this large an audience. Surprisingly Hicks isn't held in the same esteem in his home country as he is here and the airing of his performance should lead to him being discovered by a lot more people.
Hicks discusses the censorship in one of his last ever recorded interviews down below.
