Drink, drugs and rehab. In fact just what you’d expect from the most influential American comedian since Lenny Bruce. This innovative documentary is loaded with interviews, animation sequences and highlights from his shows. The film charts an evolving life from the drug and alcohol-fueled wild-man days through his subsequent sobriety and chilling end from cancer. This is an illuminating and moving documentary.

We are delighted to announce that the director Matt Harlock will be attending our screening of American: The Bill Hicks Story.
Matt will introduce the film and hold a Q&A afterwards. Put the date in your diary and spread the word!
