Bill Maher, Mr. Opinionated, to skewer the Right and the Left in Las Vegas stop

Bill Maher returns to his regular stop at the Pearl at the Palms just as the political season heats up

With an election year approaching in 2016, comedian and political commentator Bill Maher should be in rare form for his one night at the Pearl at the Palms on Oct. 24.

Maher just wrapped up his first headlining tour in Europe, playing to sold-out houses in four countries.

Maher, of course, really set the boundaries for funny in politics. For more than 20 years, Maher has been a driving force behind shows such as “Politically Incorrect” and for the last 13 years on HBO’s “Real Time.” Some of his guests include Howard Dean, Ben Affleck, Robin Williams, Arianna Huffington, Cory Booker and Michael Moore.

Maher combines unflinching honesty with big laughs, which has earned him 34 Emmy nominations. Maher won his first Emmy in 2014 as executive producer for the HBO series, “VICE.”

In 2014, Maher performed a live stand-up comedy special “Bill Maher: Live from D.C.,” which marked his 10th solo special on HBO. The special debuted back-to-back with a live edition of “Real Time with Bill Maher” and in true Maher fashion covered topics including the mid-term elections, income inequality, the Republican psyche, a Trump lawsuit, why the Pope is an atheist and why tattoos are stupid.

Maher’s career started in 1979 as a standup comedian, and he still performs at least 50 dates a year in Las Vegas and in sold-out theaters  across the country.

Tickets start at $49 and go on sale on Friday, June 26.

Tickets: The Pearl Box Office, (702) 944-3200
