Bill Maher Tour includes MSU 

EAST LANSING: For the last nineteen 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 last nine years on HBO’s Real Time, Maher’s combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him twenty-seven Emmy nominations.  Now he’s taking his message across America and is presenting it on Wharton Center’s Cobb Great Hall Sunday, June 17 at 7:00 p.m. 


In October of 2008, Maher’s uproarious and unprecedented swipe at organized religion, Religulous, directed by Larry Charles (Borat) made headlines. The documentary has gone on to become the 8th Highest Grossing Documentary ever.


In addition to his television program – which has featured such regular visitors as John Edwards, Ben Affleck, Robin Williams, Arianna Huffington, Alec Baldwin, and Michael Moore – Maher has 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.


Maher started his career as a stand-up comedian in 1979, and still performs at least fifty dates a year in Las Vegas and in sold out theaters all across the country.  Three of his nine stand-up specials for HBO – 2007’s “The Decider,” 2005’s “I’m Swiss,” as well as his most recent, the hilarious, “Bill Maher … But I’m Not Wrong,” – have been nominated for Emmy awards. 


Maher was born in New York City, raised in River Vale, N.J. and went to Cornell University.  He now resides in Los Angeles.
