Synopsis

Amazon.com
Denis Leary's stance as an unregenerate, chain-smoking, meat-eating, angry young man is intense, to say the least. But his act made him a star for one reason: His jokes are funny. No Cure for Cancer is drawn mostly from Leary's one-man show of the same name, which is full of tough love for '90s therapy-addicted crybabies, and no-holds-barred advice for idiots (which is to say, anyone who gets in Leary's way). Head for the hills when he picks up a guitar, as he does on several ill-advised comedic songs here, but listen up when Leary's straight talk makes perfect (and hilarious) sense. To crack addicts, for example, his message is simple: "Never do a drug named after a part of your own ass." --Daniel Durchholz

Denis Leary rips off Bill Hicks
01/30/1999
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Anyone who has listened to the great comedian Bill Hicks will recognize where Denis Leary gets all his best stuff. Leary was a ho-hum Boston journeyman until Hicks died & Leary appropriated all his stuff. Considering the title of this CD, it's ironic that Hicks died of Cancer. If there was a cure for cancer, Leary wouldn't have a career. A pox on this plagiarist. Point your Browser to the Bill Hicks section and get the real thing. I recommend "Rant in E-Minor.""
Loved him until I listen to Bill Hicks

"Ok, first off, I'm not writing a bad review about Leary because he isn't funny, it's because he uses stolen material. I was a Leary fan since I heard No Cure for Cancer 3 years ago, and this summer I was buying Lock n Load, and this guy working there told me if I wanted real comedy, get a Bill Hicks CD. The only one they had was Rant in E Minor. The guy told me Denis had stolen Bill's material, some word for word, and some disguised. Since then I feel sick listening to Leary do Bill's material. I have to admit Leary is funny, but if you want the real deal, start listening to Hicks. If you are smart and take my advice DO NOT get the Best of Bill Hicks, because there is no best of Bill Hicks. Everything he says is genius. "You have to admit beliefs are odd. A lot of Christians wear crosses around there neck to represent Jesus; do you think when Jesus comes back he's ever going to want to see a that [cross] agian?" - Bill on Christianity."
Funny, yet forged

"When this CD first surfaced in the mid 90's people were falling over themselves with laughter, I remember hearing "That Leary guy is HYSTERICAL!" I too agree, he did a good set on this cd, and it's a great first appearance on disc. Shortly after, I found out where that talent was coming from...Bill Hicks. Do yourself a big favor: get a Hicks CD. Leary is a puppet, mimicking only the finer parts of Bill Hicks career by cutting-and-pasting good material into his average shtick. If you don't know who Bill Hicks is, I don't blame you for being uninformed, I only ask that you go find out."
