Sun, Jul 9 at 7:30 PM @ Ruth Eckerd Hall
Host of HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher comedian Bill Maher returns to Ruth Eckerd Hall with his notoriously candid stand-up comedy! With more than twenty years in television, Bill Maher has earned more than 38 Emmy® nominations for his hit TV shows and specials and won his first Emmy® in 2014 as executive producer for the HBO series, VICE.
*CONTAINS ADULT LANGUAGE*
Along with his two hit shows, Maher has also written five bestsellers: True Story; Does Anybody Have a Problem with That? Politically Incorrect’s Greatest Hits; When You Ride Alone, You Ride with Bin Laden; New Rules: Polite Musings from a Timid Observer and most recently The New New Rules: A Funny Look at How Everybody but Me Has Their Head Up Their Ass.
However, Maher’s true passion is stand-up comedy, which he began in 1979 and helped launch his notable career. Along with his weekly television show, he still performs at least 50 shows a year in Las Vegas and in sold out theaters across the country. Four of his 10 stand-up specials for HBO have been nominated for Emmy®’s including Bill Maher: Live from DC in 2014, I’m Swiss in 2005, The Decider in 2007 and Bill Maher…But I’m Not Wrong.
