CHASE BRINGS COMEDIAN BILL MAHER TO THE KENTUCKY CENTER
The Kentucky Center is pleased to welcome political humorist Bill Maher to Whitney Hall on Sunday, July 9, at 7 p.m. as part of the Chase Brings It On Series.[NOTE: Performance may contain mature content.]
Maher is one of the most politically astute humorists in America today. His unflinching honesty and commitment to never pulling a punch have garnered him the respect and admiration of millions of fans. In 2003, Maher launched a new show, Real Time with Bill Maher, on HBO, a network that’s a perfect fit for his irreverent style.
In 1993, Maher created Politically Incorrect for Comedy Central. Maher brought together some of the most interesting politicians, entertainers and journalists to participate in some of the most controversial, topical and comical discussions. Winners of four CableACE Awards combined, Maher and his program grew in popularity year to year, eventually catching the attention in 1997 of ABC and capturing the post-Nightline time slot. A cutting edge contender of provocative late night television, Politically Incorrect survived for five years on ABC and concluded its final run in July 2002. Politically Incorrect received a total of eighteen Emmy nominations since 1995.
Maher’s credits include five HBO specials, including the critically acclaimed Bill Maher: Be More Cynical. Maher has participated in comedy tours throughout the United States. Most recently, he received a Tony nomination for the three-week run of his one-man Broadway show, Victory Begins at Home.
Last November Maher’s latest book, When you ride ALONE you ride with bin Laden, was released. The book is a useful and hilarious guide for the many Americans who want to help the war effort, but are at a loss as to how. In conjunction with the book’s release, Maher went on a nationwide stand-up tour and drew standing ovations for his hilarious routine.
