Bill Maher returns for sixth annual All-Star Evening Of Comedy
KAHULUI – Bill Maher’s sixth annual New Year’s All-Star Evening Of Comedy, starring Maher, Margaret Cho and Dana Gould, is set for Sunday, Jan. 1, 2017 in the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s Castle Theater at 7:30 p.m.?
For 20-plus years, 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 last 14 years on HBO’s “Real Time,” Maher’s combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him 38 Emmy nominations. Maher won his first Emmy in 2014 as executive producer for the HBO series “Vice.”
In October of 2008, this same combination was on display in Maher’s uproarious and unprecedented swipe at organized religion, “Religulous,” directed by Larry Charles (“Borat”).
The documentary has gone on to become the eighth highest grossing documentary ever.
In addition to his television program – which has featured such visitors as President Barack Obama, Vice President Joseph Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kerry Washington, Michael Steele, Howard Dean, Michael Moore, Eva Longoria, Drew Barrymore, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Gen. Wesley Clark, Susan Sarandon, Kevin Costner, Gary Hart and Pat Buchanan – Maher has written five bestsellers, including the most recent “The New New Rules: A Funny Look at How Everybody But Me Has Their Head Up Their A**.”
Don’t miss this evening with the brilliantly funny Maher – and his unique take on our world – and the passionate, no-holds-barred Agent Provocateur of stand-up comedy, Margaret Cho.
Special guest Dana Gould is a stand-up comedian and comedy writer who has been featured on HBO, Showtime, and Comedy Central. He appears regularly on “Real Time.”?
