For the last twenty 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-nine Emmy nominations. In October of 2008, this same combination was on display in Maher's uproarious and unprecedented swipe at organized religion, "Religulous," directed by Larry Charles ("Borat"). The documentary has gone on to become the 8th Highest Grossing Documentary ever. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=143749 Beacon Theatre Beacon Theatre

Venue Description: Located on the Upper West Side, the 2,894-seat Beacon Theatre is considered to be Radio City Music Hall?s "older sister." The art deco-designed Beacon opened in 1929 as a venue for vaudeville acts, drama, opera and movies and is well regarded for its superior acoustics. In 2006, former President Bill Clinton celebrated his birthday with a private Rolling Stones concert. Past performers there include Queen, Jerry Garcia, Allman Brothers (they have performed there 173 times), Radiohead, Bryan Ferry, and many more. Beacon Theatre is accessible by subway; get the 1/2 train to 72nd Street station.
