Comedy Dynamics to Release Bill Hicks: Live in Montreal on April 14, 2017
Comedy Dynamics announced today it will release Bill Hicks: Live in Montreal on iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify and all other digital audio retailers on April 14, 2017.
Recorded in 1991 at the Centaur Theatre during the Montreal International Comedy Festival, Bill Hicks puts his classic style of dark humor on display. He ponders what would happen if the earth was invaded by redneck aliens, why there aren’t any positive stories about drugs on the news, and wonders what an atheist yells during sex.
Hicks tackled a wide range of social issues including religion, politics, consumerism, the media, and popular culture in a dark and controversial way. During the 1990’s, he toured the United States and United Kingdom extensively while making a number of high-profile television appearances. On February 26, 1994 at the age of 32, he died of pancreatic cancer in Little Rock, Arkansas. In subsequent years he has developed a strong following around the world. He was named the fourth greatest comedian of all time by London’s Channel 4 and ranked at 19 by Comedy Central.
“Bill Hicks’ performance at the Montreal Comedy Festival was legendary. It’s very exciting to be releasing this new audio version of Bill Hicks’ comedy for the first time,” said Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of The Nacelle Company.
