Fathom Events and Comedy Dynamics announced today their plan to present a not-to-be-missed cinema event featuring one of the biggest names in comedy with, "Comedy Dynamics Presents: Bill Hicks," in select cinemas on Monday, April 27, at 8 p.m. local time. The event will include approximately 90 minutes of stand-up and special content from Hicks' “Relentless” special, recorded at Montreal’s Centaur Theatre in 1992, and also feature a montage of unseen clips from previous stand-up routines narrated by his brother, Steve Hicks, as well as home videos from the Hicks family estate.
Tickets for “Comedy Dynamics Presents: Bill Hicks” can be purchased online by visiting Fathom Events, or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in nearly 350 movie theaters through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network. A complete list of theater locations and prices are available at the Fathom Events website (though theaters and participants are subject to change).
Hicks remains extremely influential thanks to his hilarious and before-his-time comedy. Recorded at the Centaur Theatre in Montreal in 1992, Bill Hicks’ “Relentless” finds the legendary comedian at the top of his game. As Hicks rails against non-smokers, musicians who don’t use drugs, and the (then current) Gulf War effort, "Relentless" is essential Hicks both for the newcomer and super fan.
“Working with the Hicks legacy is an honor for all of us at Comedy Dynamics and we are thrilled to partner with Fathom Events to bring his work to the big screen,” said Brian Volk-Weiss, President of Production at Comedy Dynamics.
"This late, great comedian truly set the bar for modern stand-up and was an influential creative force behind many of today’s most popular comedians,” cites Kymberli Frueh-Owens, Vice President of Programming for Fathom Events. “Even decades after his passing, this comedic genius is still lauded."
Don’t miss your chance to enjoy the timeless entertainment Bill Hicks offered the world with this exclusive big-screen opportunity on April 27.
