Comedy legend Bill Hicks to release classic show on DVD

He was Radiohead's hero, you know...

The first ever DVD release of a complete performance by legendary comedian Bill Hicks is to be released next month.

‘Sane Man’ was recorded in 1989, before Hicks made any of his acclaimed albums.

The DVD comes with a host of extras, including outtakes, a biography, unseen footage from the star’s ‘outlaw’ years, Hicks as Elvis Presley, a Hicks on TV essay and “a few surprises”.

Hicks, who died of cancer in 1994, was revered by the likes of Super Furry Animals and Radiohead, who dedicated their 1995 album ‘The Bends’ to his memory.
