For the last 17 years, Bill Maher has set the boundaries of where funny, political talk can go on American television. First on “Politically Incorrect” (Comedy Central, ABC, 1993-2002) and for the past nine years on HBO’s “Real Time,” Maher’s combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him 27 Emmy Award nominations. In 2008, this same combination was on display in Maher’s uproarious and unprecedented swipe at organized religion, “Religulous,” a film directed by Larry Charles. The documentary film has gone on to become the 8th highest grossing documentary ever. Maher started his career as a stand-up comedian in 1979, and still performs at least 50 dates a year in Las Vegas and sold-out theaters across the country. Three of his nine stand-up specials for HBO – “The Decider,” “I’m Swiss” as well as his most recent, the hilarious, “Bill Maher … But I’m Not Wrong” – have been nominated for Emmy Awards. A Rick Bartalini Presents production - may include mature subject matter. Tickets: $45.50, $65.50, $85.50 (plus applicable fees) Preshow dinner by Hali'imaile General Store.
