The true life story of the outlaw comic who tried to save the world. Bill Hicks died on Feb 26th 1994, and since then his reputation has only grown. Regularly voted one of the top comics of all time, this award winning documentary recounts his fascinating and ultimately uplifting life story, told by those that knew him best.

Made in close association with Bill’s family and friends, it features unprecedented access to unseen archive material and a stunning new animation technique throughout.

Considered the definitive film on Hicks’ life, it premiered at London Film Festival and SXSW, was 6th on the iTunes All Time Bestsellers chart, and the 2nd highest grossing documentary in UK cinemas that year.

The night will be raising funds for the Bill Hicks Wildlife Foundation.

With thanks to Halflife Films.
