American: The Bill Hicks Story


Session Times

See all sessions Scroll to content

Razor sharp and well ahead of his time, Bill Hicks blasted onto the Austin comedy circuit as a teenager, offering up his unique brand of bilious commentary.
An amalgam of excess, infamy, sobriety and fame, Hicks offended and endeared in equal measure. Seen through the eyes of UK filmmaking team Matt Harlock and Paul Thomas, the comedian springs back to life through clever use of animation, rare footage and the accounts of those who really knew him.
