William Melvin "Bill" Hicks (December 16, 1961February 26, 1994) was an American stand-up comedian.

Comedian Richard Pryor figured as an inspiration and stand-up idol for Hicks, as did Woody Allen who also served as a very early influence for a pre-teen Hicks. Hicks characterized his own performances as "Chomsky with dick jokes".
