"Hicks's humor wasn't for everyone, and during his lifetime, few had a chance to hear it. Love All the People gives a talented and insightful performer a second lease on life. What is tragic about Hicks's belated renaissance is that it seems very little has changed in this country. But, as the sign at the entrance to Jonestown said (stealing a phrase from George Santayana) 'Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.' I truly believe that somewhere on the other side, Hicks is having the last laugh."
