‘Politically Incorrect’ star Bill Maher at Las Vegas Hilton

Apr 2, 2002 3:54 AM

Bill Maher, star of ABC’s Politically Incorrect, will appear in concert in the Las Vegas Hilton Theater Friday and Saturday at 10:30 p.m. Tickets are  available by calling the Las Vegas Hilton Box Office at (702) 732-5755 or toll-free at (800) 222-5361.

Politically Incorrect, now in its fifth season on ABC, was recently nominated for an Emmy for “Outstanding Variety, Music of Comedy Series.” Prior to airing on ABC, Maher’s brainchild amassed four Cable ACE Awards on Comedy Central.

Maher, inspired by the show’s success, assembled some of PI’s most memorable highlights in his book, Does Anybody Have a Problem With That? Politically Incorrect’s Greatest Hits. In the book, Maher brings us his tougue-in-cheek commentaries on such modest proposals as putting warning labels on the Bible, why we should have drunk driving lanes and his regular “Get Over Yourself Award,” given to such notables as Newt Gingrich, Santa Claus and the O.J. Simpson defense team. He offers a collection of some of the funniest and most insightful thoughts of PI’s panelists, including Ben Affleck, Marilyn Manson, Ann Richards, Pamela Anderson, Oliver Stone, Ron Howard, Arianna Huffington and Janeane Garofalo.

Maher’s credits include five HBO specials, including the critically acclaimed Bill Maher: Be More Cynical. He has made several appearances on Late Night With David Letterman and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, where he also served as guest correspondent.
