Though he's best known for pissing off political conservatives on his HBO talk show, Bill Maher is also adept at angering meat-eaters, Christians, married people (with and without children), and those who believe Obama is The One...which altogether just about covers every person in America. But it's admirable that the Playboy Mansion-loving pothead is never afraid to say exactly what's on his mind, usually making it funny and thought-provoking. The comedian/commentator's out on the road until Real Time with Bill Maher returns to HBO next month, but he'd do best to stay away from a certain Lone Star transplant. In a recent interview on royalflushmagazine.com, rocker/hunter Ted Nugent (a regular recipient of Maher's barbs) said he would kill more animals in 2010 just to piss off his nemesis. "Not because I need to, but because it will cause Bill Maher to shit blood," quips The Nuge. "That's my goal in life." 8 p.m. Cullen Hall, University of Houston, 4800 Calhoun. For information, call 713-743-5186 or visit www.uh.edu/cph. $51.50 to $91.50.
