  A laughing matter

| | See all RJNeb2's reviews (648)

Hicks was an acerbic American stand-up comedian who went through the usual drugs and booze battles before cleaning himself up and really hitting his stride, particularly with UK audiences. Only to be felled by cancer at the age of 32 in 1994. This is a straight documentary of his life and legacy, interspersed with plenty of clips of the comedian in action and some amusingly treated family photographs. Nothing particularly innovative but a fond remembrance of a talent snatched away too soon.
