BillHicks-Style Soup

It makes for a great night to accidentally discover there is Bill Hicks comedy specials on Netflix. I talk badly, usually, about Netflix, these days. The amazing and rare discovery that I made, motivated me to make an impovisational late night soup after one too many Beers.


For those who do not know who Bill Hicks is. A lot of you, probably shouldn’t know who he was. Bill Hicks passed away in 1994, to pancreatic cancer, at the age of 32. He was bluntly honest and widely controversial. A comedian with a severely dark persona. Will Melvin Hicks was on a higher level of comedy that only a few people have touched base with. And even some of his stuff pisses me off. That is how you know it is genuine. Horrible comedy pisses me off, but finding controversial comedy that somewhat gets under my skin is uncommon and unique.


On Netflix as of 6.6.16 = Bill Hicks : Sane Man , Bill Hicks : Revelations


The band Tool dedicated their 1996 album, Ænima, to Bill Hicks. Here is a YouTube link to its best song, in my opinion…


This soup was easy and extremely delicious. I grilled halved Red and Yellow Potatoes while simmering Tomato Juice and Veggie Broth.


I threw in all sorts of leftover veggies consisting of: Onion, Tomato, Cucumber, Scallions, Celery, Parsley, Tofu, Tempeh, Japonica Rice and Garlic. I seasoned this Soup with Sugar, SeaSalt, Pepper, Cayenne, BalsamicVinegar and Garlic Powder.


I let it simmer for some more Bill Hicks Comedy before checking it again to realize that it needs more time. I made myself a sandwich of beer. The sandwich of Beer was simply a sandwich between two slices of Beer. I let the Soup simmer just above warm for the rest of the night.


There are things you can rush, but knowing ultimately that you cannot not rush something multiple beers deep, is the art of cooking.


I suggest any flavor of White Claw Hard Seltzer to anyone 21 or older.




I made a Daiya Cheese sandwich with two separate Grilled Daiya sandwiches capturing Lettuce, Tomato, Onion and Guacamole. With some evolved Soup materials on the side:)


Happy Tuesday! Go find a blood drive near you! I will be donating double red cells at noon today and so should you, if you qualify to.
