Bill Maher Returns to DPAC August 9

March 2, 2015 (Durham, NC) – Bill Maher is one of the most politically astute comedians in America today. His unflinching honesty combined with his razor-wit have garnered him millions of fans.

“Bill Maher is even more hilarious in person than he is on TV. Fans who missed his sold out stand-up show in 2013 will not want to miss this return performance. Described as an ‘equal opportunity offender’, Bill Maher will have you laughing like never before as his stand-up comedy covers celebrities, politics, and much more,” said Emily McLoughlin, Senior Director of Marketing- Concerts & Comedy.

For the last twenty-three years, Bill Maher has set the boundaries of where funny, political talk can go on American television; first on Comedy Central’s “Politically Incorrect”, and most recently on HBO’s “Real Time.”

Maher’s combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him a Tony nomination for his one-man Broadway show, “Victory Begins at Home” and an Emmy in 2014 for “Real Time with Bill Maher”. Maher’s uproarious and unprecedented swipe at organized religion, “Religulous,” was released to critical acclaim in 2008.

Maher has written bestsellers including: “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.”
