53. like Warren, I *think* I saw him once back in the late 80s on tv...

 

But it wasn't until the mid 90s that I really discovered him.. Tool sampled a little of his stuff on their album AEnima, and also had a dedication to him. Their singer was an occasional stand up comic and had been friends with Hicks.
He's also the reason I want to punch Dennis Leary in the throat. Leary essentially ripped off Hicks' entire persona. So much so that, if I remember correctly, Leno once said the only reason Leary was a star was because there's no cure for cancer. (Referring, of course, to Hicks' death from pancreatic cancer)... in an astoundingly classless move, Leary then titled one of his HBO specials "No Cure for Cancer."
