Hicks has been called the greatest because he delivered a unique experience with his comedy not just by poking fun at modern living, but by breaking it down and assessing it. American is aware of what made Hicks innovative and attempts to convey the same in documentary form.
American: The Bill Hicks Story will screen at the Denver FilmCenter, 2510 East Colfax Avenue, today through June 10; tickets are $9.75. For more information and a list of showtimes, visit www.denverfilm.org or call 303-595-3456.
