A 1993 standup performance by Bill Hicks on David Letterman that was cut from the telecast 15 years ago finally saw light of day on an unusual episode of "Late Show with David Letterman" on Friday.
Suddenly awash with guilt for cutting the performance in its entirety, months before the edgy comic died of pancreatic cancer, Letterman not only showed the entire performance, he also invited the comic's mother, Mary Hicks, on the show so he could say how sorry he was for the whole thing.

I can see why letterman chose to censor it maybe it was the first jokes, they were kinda harsh
but I think the censorship was probably the best thing that ever happened to Bill Hicks, otherwise nobody would be watching those videos on youtube and I sure as heck wouldn't have ever remembered him.
If Jesus had been killed twenty years ago, Catholic school children would be wearing little electric chairs around their necks instead of crosses.
