Hicks Wildlife Foundation Benefit
Capitol City Comedy Club 2.26.04
my money, the greatest comedian of all time is Bill Hicks.
It's really hard to imagine that it will have been 10 years
since his premature passing from pancreatic cancer this February
26th. To celebrate Bill's life work and the effect he has
had on our lives, Lynn and Jere Raridon of the Bill Hicks
Wildlife Foundation, and Kevin Booth of Sacred Cow Productions
are organizing a series of benefits around the world, all
of which will occur on February 26th. The cities currently
signed up include Belfast, London, NYC, Chicago, Houston,
San Diego, as well as here in Austin at the Capitol City Comedy
Club. All proceeds will benefit the Bill Hicks Wildlife Foundation.
The foundation supports a group of local animal rescue and
rehabilitation workers who both knew Bill, and share Bill's
passion for helping in this important task. Kevin Booth was
Bill's best friend and producer of much of Bill's released
work both on video and on CD. The night will feature some
rare Hicks video and invited rant-offs from the audience,
and will be MC'd by comedian Chad Dubrul. Tickets are $12.
