The greatest comic of his generation. Kicked ass. Took names. Changed the game.

American: The Bill Hicks Story brings to life the amazing true story of one of modern culture's iconic figures.

Much more than just a comedian, Bill Hicks has become an inspiration to millions around the world. As a rebellious teenager, he discovered that comedy was a way to break all the rules, but then found it could also open people's minds.

Bill's comedy challenged the injustices of life head on but his uncompromising approach met with conflict in America and it was instead on the international stage where he found fame. In 1993, on the verge of wilder success, Bill fell ill with terminal cancer, but his timeless material has lived on, revered by comedians and audiences alike as the man who changed comedy forever.

Taking documentary to a new level, American uses a combination of interviews, stunning animation, and archive footage, including many previously unseen performances, to bring Bill's inspiring story to life, told for the first time by those who knew him best.
