This is so odd. I was talking about Bill Hicks earlier tonight, and I thought I would poke through YouTube and see what was there. Something I had mentioned was that David Letterman had invited Bill to do some stand up on his show about 15 years ago, which he did. This was shortly after Letterman had started his new show on CBS after leaving NBC. Letterman later cut Bill's performance from the show before it went to air, which upset Bill greatly, because he and Letterman had known each other for years. Bill had been a frequent guest on Letterman's show while he was still with NBC, and had always gotten a great response, so being cut from the show was more than a little upsetting.
