No person represents the liberal, nonreligious, sarcastic political left better than Bill Maher, host of Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO and the maker of the film Religulous. What’s easy to forget sometimes, though, is that Maher is still a regularly performing and talented stand-up comedian. His stand-up shows always bring a biting humor. He’s the perfect example of political incorrectness, a badge he wears proudly, and no area of public life is safe from his acid wit. While exposing the hypocrisies of policy and politics is his bread and butter, he also tackles more conventional comedy fare such as his love of being a bachelor and calling for the legalization of marijuana. 8 p.m.
