For the last twenty years, Bill Maher has set the boundaries of where funny, political talk can go on American television-first on the show Politically Correct and for the last 10 years on HBO’s Real Time.
He has written four best sellers including his most recent The New New Rules- he started his career as a stand up comedian in 1979 and still performs at least 50 dates a year. He will perform at The Palace Theater in Albany on Sunday 11/10.
Comedian Bill Engvall’s ability to share the humor of everyday situations has made him one of the top comedians of today. He began his comedy career performing at open-mic nights in Dallas while a student at Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas.
