When: Mon., April 27 2015
The late, great Bill HIcks was a groundbreaking comedian. A self-described "curmudgeon," he often joked about social issues and popular culture. David Letterman once banned him (and later apologized for it) after an edgy performance on his show where he joked about hunting down and killing pop stars such as Billy Ray Cyrus and Michael Bolton. He also made jokes about homosexuality and abortion, stuff that's considered tame by today's standards. Tonight at 8, area theaters will screen Comedy Dynamics Presents: Bill Hicks,This performance, a concert recorded at the Centaur Theatre in Montreal in 1992. The event will include approximately 90 minutes of stand-up and special content from Hicks’ Relentless special. It also features a montage of unseen clips from previous standup routines narrated by his brother, Steve Hicks, as well as home videos from the Hicks family estate. (Niesel) fathomEvents.com.
