Win A Pair Of Tickets To See Bill Maher At Overture Hall

Bill Maher

Bill Maher has been injecting his signature side-splitting wit into his politically-charged TV programs, movies, books, activism, and stand-up routines for years.  We’re thrilled that he will be making a Madison stop on his comedy tour this weekend and can’t wait to hear what he has to say.  If you’re just as amped as we are, read on to find out how you could win a pair of tickets to Maher’s August 1st stand-up performance at Overture Hall.

Madison Week In Music + Ticket Giveaways (7.28-8.3): Greg Laswell & Cary Brothers, John Eddie, Lucero, Bill Maher, and The Portland Cello Project

Portland Cello Project

You may have noticed that we’ve been adding new shows left and right lately (see our Music Calendar for the latest).   We’re hard at work putting together a pleasantly busy fall schedule to entertain, educate, and delight your ears as summer fades away.  But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves!  There’s still plenty of hot lazy days ahead of us to fill with great tunes.

Take this week for example.  Maybe a little rock, a pinch of comedy, or even a sprinkle of classical performances can seduce your senses in the coming days as we welcome the likes of Greg Laswell & Cary Brothers, John Eddie, Lucero, Bill Maher, and The Portland Cello Project to Madison.  (We’re also looking forward to presenting a second John Eddie show in Milwaukee this week if you can’t make the Madison gig.)  Read on to get the show details and find out how to win tickets!

___________________________

For the last seventeen 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 seven years on HBO’s “Real Time,” Maher’s combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him twenty-two 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 7th Highest Grossing Documentary ever.

In addition to his television program – which has featured such regular visitors as John Edwards, Ben Affleck, Robin Williams, Arianna Huffington, Alec Baldwin and Michael Moore – Maher has written four bestsellers: “True Story,” “Does Anybody Have a Problem with That? Politically Incorrect’s Greatest Hits,” “When You Ride Alone, You Ride with Bin Laden” and most recently, “New Rules: Polite Musings from a Timid Observer.”

Maher started his career as a stand-up comedian in 1979, and still performs at least fifty dates a year in Las Vegas and in sold out theaters all across the country. Two of his eight stand-up specials for HBO – 2007’s “The Decider” and 2005’s “I’m Swiss” – have been nominated for Emmy awards.

Don’t miss your chance to see Bill Maher live at Madison’s Overture Hall on Sunday, August 1.
