Love, Laughter and Truth is a 2002 album consisting of previously unreleased material by comedianBill Hicks. The material on the album was originally recorded by Hicks himself for personal use, but was after his death reviewed by the Hicks Estate, after which it was decided to release the previously unreleased bits on this album. The material comes from recordings made from 1990-93 in Denver, San Ramon[disambiguation needed], West Palm Beach, San Francisco and Pittsburgh.
The album is plagued by poor sound quality. This is due to the poor equipment that was used for many of the recordings and the lack of volume adjustments while recording. Before releasing the album, careful remastering was done. For instance, more than 120 pops were removed and seven sections de-hissed. Still, poor sound and volume variations between tracks can easily be heard.
The title of the album comes from the last words of Hicks before he died. He had written on a letter "I left in love, in laughter, and in truth, and wherever truth, love and laughter abide, I am there in spirit."
