Everybody in the comedy world knows that Denis Leary ripped off Bill's act. Even bits from Leary's comedy album No Cure for Cancer (1993) were stolen from Hicks’ Dangerous (1990). The joke goes "Denis Leary became famous because there is No Cure For Cancer". Huge fan of psychedelic mushrooms and UFOs.
