Win A Copy of American The Bill Hicks Story on DVD or Blu Ray

It’s time for another contest! This week we’re giving away a total of SIX copies of Matt Harlock and Paul Thomas’ American: The Bill HIcks Story; three on DVD and three on blu ray. The film looks at the life and times of legendary stand up comedian Bill Hicks and this DVD/Blu Ray release from the BBC is absolutely PACKED with special features. You’ll find all of the info after the jump!

American: The Bill Hicks Story brings to life the amazing true story of one of modern culture’s most ironic figures.

Much more than just a comedian, Bill Hicks has become an inspiration to millions around the world. As a rebellious teenager, he discovered that comedy was a way to break all the rules, but then found it could also open people’s minds.

Bill’s comedy challenged the injustices of life head on but his uncompromising approach met with conflict in America and it was instead on the international stage where he found fame. IN 1993, on the verge of wider success, Bill fell ill with terminal cancer, but his timeless material has lived on, revered by comedians and audiences alike as the man who changed comedy forever.

The disc includes hours of rare clips and unseen performances, extended interviews, Bill’s personal audio journals, 1.5 hours of featurettes and more! It’s a pretty sweet haul.
