Film Pre-review: American, The Bill Hicks Story

Opening first in New York on April 8th, comes a long bio-pic about one of the greatest comedians that ever lived, and one very few have ever heard of. That is because just as he was finally getting famous, he was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer at 32 years old.  But this death sentence only took his humor further into the nether reaches of sensitive topics NO ONE would touch, with a  irreverence that is both refreshing and at times shocking.  But always gut-laughing funny.  I have every record he every made,  and can laugh at them over and over again, the sign of a true comedic genius. And don’t worry, the film has LOTS of footage of his priceless stand-up routines.

Bill Hicks was a fantastic talent, and a tragic loss, and this film is a MUST SEE!  Let’s all go out and show Bill our support posthumously since so few of us had the chance during his life..  WARNING, if laughing hysterically may be detrimental to your health for some reason, do not go to this film.  It is not for the weak of heart OR those easily offended.

Below is a link to locations where the movie will be shown starting April 9th:

  1. Mr. Harrington advised me not to comment anymore. Apparently he cannot
    take critism. Please remove me from this list…….

  2. William, I can take criticism when it backed by facts. But I do not permit religious and moral judgements and/or personal attacks directed at the writers on this blog. And I will at times not post completely unsubstantiated “opinions” if they are offensive or just plain stupid. If you wish to unsubscribe, there is a drop down at the top of the page labeled “Subscribe” that also allows you to unsubscribe. If you have problems with that let me know.. Thanks for your participation in Conspireality.. Regards, Eric

  3. The site is not for criticizing me or anyone else. Talk about the issues.. Please go away William, you are a fool..

  4. PS.. I cannot take you off the list, you have to do it yourself.. I’m sure an engineer like you can figure it out.. Happy Holidays..

  5. I did not advise you to not comment, only to comment on the topics, not on the people writing them. I allow even the most idiotic comments if they are on topic and not personal. Grow up William.. Don’t you have some important engineering or investigating to do…
