You’re Going To Love Louis CK…But He Probably Hates You

Louis CK

Equipped with a microphone, a chuckle, and a shit-eating-grin, Louis CK will bring out the worst traits in humanity for your viewing pleasure this Sunday night at the Capitol Theatre.

Louis may be the most honest man alive. “How am I doing? I’m fat,” he answered on a recent interview with Conan O’Brien.  Trapped in a mid-life crises after a recent divorce, Louis picks apart the things that bug him most:  his ex-wife, his kids, and most importantly, himself.

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.
