I gave the late great Bill Hicks a 4 seed, which is probably akin to Gale Sayers being in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Sayers' career was too short to really be hall-worthy, and the same is likely true for Hicks. The comedians I admire the most all live out on the edge, and this guy certainly did.
Here he riffs on a personal favorite topic, the JFK assassination. I've given up on the linky thing. It didn't used to be this problematic. Anyway: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11Fl9ZVJ7B8&feature=related
Holding down a 13 seed is Craig Ferguson, our second Scot in the competition. Because I don't watch a lot of late-night TV anymore, I miss some of the best things he does on his talk show. The guy's really good. Here he performs a little stand-up talking about Tom Cruise. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JntioiLg0-c
