American: The Bill Hicks Story


Media_httpuploadwikim_uumdj

I saw this screening last night, thanks to Popcorn Taxi. It’s as Bill describes himself: like Chomsky with dick jokes. But the photo-animated film really delves more into his personal life, including his initial attempt at standup as a teenager, his problems with drugs and alcohol, his enlightening experiences with psychedelic mushrooms, and how he kept performing even after he received the fatal news. Just a brilliant guy who died too soon.
