Totally Bill Hicks is a video released in 1994, re-released on DVD in 2002, documenting the life and comedy of Bill Hicks. It consists of two parts; Revelations, a recording of his last live performance in the United Kingdom made at the Dominion Theatre,[1] and It's Just A Ride, a documentary about Hicks' life which featured interviews with friends, admirers, and family.

In 2002 Totally Bill Hicks became the first of Hicks' videos to be released on DVD,[2] prompting one critic to comment on how topical the comedian's material had remained. His joke about the Bush administration learning about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction "by looking at the receipt" was made in the context of the First Gulf War, but was equally relevant in the run up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.[3]
