Comedian and host of HBO's "Real Time" Bill Maher will visit Rochester on Sunday, September 27, for a show at the Auditorium Theatre (885 East Main Street). In the biz for more than 20 years, Maher is known for his near decade as the host of "Politically Incorrect," and for "Religulous," his 2008 feature-length swat at organized religion. His work has earned him 34 Emmy nominations and a gold medal in extreme eye-rolling.
As a host, Maher has interviewed the likes of Howard Dean, Ben Affleck, Robin Williams, Arianna Huffington, Cory Booker, and Michael Moore. He's also authored 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." Dude's not exactly shy with his views.
The show starts at 7:30 p.m., and tickets are $39-$95. For more information or to secure your seat, call 222-5000 or visit rbtl.org.
