“For the last twenty years, Bill Maher has set the boundaries of where funny political talk can go on American television,” says publicist Emily Clay. “Maher’s combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him 29 Emmy nominations.” In addition to his extensive TV work, Maher has written four best-selling books and produced and starred in Religulous, a satire of organized religion and the seventh-highest-grossing documentary film of all time.
Maher remains a standup comic first and foremost, however; he’s recorded nine one-hour specials and continues to tour the country every year. The avowed legalization advocate and public stoner will roll through Denver tonight to headline a show at 8 p.m. at the Paramount Theatre, 1621 Glenarm Place — and, presumably, to check out a recreational weed shop or two.
