Bigtop Studios is a national and international independent film production house founded by Denver-native, now Los Angeles based comedian Jim Hickox. Aside from producing and sponsoring Denver’s best and longest running comedy shows, our preliminary projects have been comedy shorts, web-series and a string of television pilots, but in 2018, Bigtop has begun producing feature-length wide-release films in Berlin, Tel Aviv, Melbourne, and Los Angeles. The goal being to make a welcoming, one-stop-shop for creatives and visionaries. Step Right Up!
