Is a new generation ready for Bill Hicks? The deceased, quietly controversial comic, who smiled sweetly while launching socially significant smart-bombs at his audience?
Comedy Dynamics, owned by New Wave Entertainment,
believes so, and on April 27, it will release Hicks' "Relentless"
concert feature from 1992 in 500 theaters nationwide followed
by the release of Hicks' entire comedy output in digital form.
"We got lucky and were able to strike a deal with his estate,"
says Brian Volk-Weiss, president of Comedy Dynamics.
"Never before, under one roof, has so much Hicks product been
available. With the okay from Bill's family, his comedy specials
will be streaming, his CDs will be available, and there [will be a]
one-of-a-kind boxset of Bill's work. With luck, people will see
a guy who wasn't just funny, but helped to change
the course of comedy."
