Much more than a comedian, Bill Hicks has become an inspiration to millions. Developing a unique and fearless style that turned convention on it's head, opening up new ways of thinking, Bill's uncompromising approach met with conflict in America and it was instead on the international stage where he found fame. His early death in 1994 has not dimmed his timeless comedy, which still resonates today with ever growing numbers of people around the world.
