[T]his guy seems to be the reincarnation of Bill Hicks, one YouTube poster commented about a clip of Chris Porter performing on Last Comic Standing. This, of course, is blasphemy, but Porter does have a certain semblance to the late, great Hicks. Both attack American norms and have a grimy, down-home vibe. Porter is fond of tackling those supposedly poignant antidrug commercials, including the infamous one of the girl floating in a swimming pool. This voice comes on after five seconds [and] goes, Just tell them you were getting stoned; theyll understand, Porter says in his routine. Thats not an anti-pot scenario; thats an anti-pool scenario. If you would have had a regular backyard, that kid would have been fine. Stop spoiling the bastards.
