American, The Bill Hicks Story

Play Sample

Summary

One of the funniest and most influential comedians of the modern era. Admired by not only the public but by legions of his fellow comics. Hicks, who died aged only 33, discovered that comedy, besides being entertaining, was also a way to break the rules and open people’s minds. His comedy constantly challenged the media and the US government and military.

This recording contains many of his finest comedy pieces, and also interviews with those who knew him best—his family and closest friends—many of them comedians also.
