William Melvin Hicks was a jack of all trades. He was a musician, comedian, satirist, and social critic. But what made him stand head and shoulders above his peers was the fact that he mastered every form of art he was good at. He liked to amuse people with his shocking sense of humor, and while very few people can pull this off, he had a lot flair and pizzazz. His fans loved him for it. After all, he’s one of the few men who made the great David Letterman do one that one thing he hardly does – apologize.

He may not be with us right now, but we’re sure he’s making the angels laugh at his witty one-liners and shocking truths.
