Dangerous is the first live CD album released by stand-up comedian and satirist Bill Hicks in 1990, on New York-based Invasion Records. The album was recorded over two nights at Caroline's in New York City.

Nearly all of this material was previously performed in Hicks' Sane Man special in 1989.

The album sold about 5,000 units.

Hicks explained the title to the LA Times by referencing a quote he attributes to Thomas Jefferson, although the veracity of the quote is not confirmed.

[Jefferson's] quote was "No idea is dangerous to society wherein that idea can be openly discussed." That's why the album is called "Dangerous," because I'm discussing drugs and things drugs do.[2]
