Bill Hicks: American


This isn't new, but I just discovered it via SxSW where it got its American premier over the weekend.

Matt Harlock & Paul Thomas have spent the last 3 years making AMERICAN – The Bill Hicks Story. This is the Trailer:

Libertarian, outlaw, shaman, philosopher, romantic, preacher, genius… All words banded about to describe the genius that was Bill Hicks, I have listened to Bills work more than ANY other comedian and it never gets stale, it never gets old. In fact sometimes it gets MORE relevant with age.

It is one of the great tragedies that Bill Hicks died when he did as I often wonder how much fun Bill would have had ripping on the politicians of today. I also KNOW he would hate Miley Cyrus.

If you have never heard of Bill Hicks will you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE educate yourself an go listen to some of his material. The clip below is a great place to start.
