ith the cancellation of
his highly acclaimed
television show,

Politically Incorrect,

comedian Bill Maher has returned to
his professional 'roots" — standup
comedy. He's doing one-nighters in
such places as Skokie, Ill.; Tacoma,
Wash.; Agoura Hills, Calif.; and,
now, Clinton Township, Mich.
The latter is the home of the
Macomb Center for the Performing
Arts — the beautiful theater with the
long drive time to Hall (M-59) and
Garfield roads. Maher will open the
center's new season Friday, Oct. 4.

comedian Carrot Top to operas La
Boheme and Madame Butterfly and a
travel series that includes "Israel: Stories
From the Holy Lands" (Nov. 24).
Maher, who is Jewish on his moth-
er's side and is a strong supporter of
Israel, created the irreverent Politically
Incorrect in 1993 on cable TV's
Comedy Central, bringing together
politicians, journalists and entertainers
to participate in controversial, topical
and comical discussions. Winning four
Cable-ACE Awards, Maher and the
program grew in popularity each year,
catching the attention in 1997 of
ABC-TV, and landing in the post-
Nightline time slot.
The topical talk show was the epit-
ome of provocative late-night TV,
garnering 18 Emmy Award nomina-
tions, but the bubble burst in May
for the quick-witted and
sharp-tongued Maher.
