At last, the true life story of the outlaw comic who tried to save the world.

American: The Bill Hicks Story finally brings the amazing tale of one of modern culture's most iconic figures to the big screen. Much more than just a comedian, Bill Hicks has become an inspiration to millions around the world. His unique comedy style 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 wider success, Bill fell ill with terminal cancer, but his timeless comedy has lived on and continues to resonate today with ever growing numbers of people around the world.

Pushing documentary storytelling in a new direction, and using a stunning new animation technique, AMERICAN brings Bill’s inspiring story to life - and most importantly, back to the North American audiences to whom he played during his career.
