It’s hard to find a comedian who isn’t afraid to tackle almost every controversial topic. From abortion, to racism, to religion, Bill Hicks was the man to take them all on.
We don’t have the ability to see Hicks live, but we can listen to the reissues of his albums. Comedy Dynamics got the Bill Hicks’ Estate and have worked to re-release his entire catalog. You can find the more detailed story of that here. To build up the re-release of the albums, Steve Hicks, Bill’s brother, hosted a Reddit AMA to talk about Bill and the bonus documentary. Oh, that’s another addition to the build up, on April 27th, Fathom Events hosted a one-night only of Comedy Dynamics Presents: Bill Hicks, a screening that includes never-before-seen bonus content. There’s a timeline of what we can expect to see. A special piece of that timeline is a new audio album of unreleased material, which we’ve documented for you already.
One of the points of the album is to show the new generation of comedy lovers one of the definitive voices of comedy. Hicks paved the way for what comedy could become. He loved pushing the boundaries with his dark comedy and sense of humor. Now we are reminded of why Bill Hicks was one of the best that we lost too soon.
