Classic Comedy Hits the Big Screen with Bill Hicks One-Night Event this April
Fathom Events and Comedy Dynamics to Debut Special Bill Hicks Event in Select U.S. Movie Theaters for One Night on April 27
DENVER – April 1, 2015 – Fathom Events and Comedy Dynamics present a not-to-be-missed cinema event featuring one of the biggest names in comedy with, “Comedy Dynamics Presents: Bill Hicks,” in select U.S. cinemas on Monday, April 27, 2015 at 8:00 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 feature 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.
Tickets for “Comedy Dynamics Presents: Bill Hicks” can be purchased online by visiting www.FathomEvents.com, 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. For a complete list of theater locations and prices, visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).
Hicks was extremely influential, hilarious and before-his-time. Recorded at the Centaur Theatre in Montreal in 1992, Bill Hicks’ Relentless finds the legendary comedian at the top of his game. With classic jokes railing 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.
Fathom Events VP of Programming, Kymberli Frueh-Owens said, “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. Even decades after his passing, this comedic genius is still lauded.”
