Bill Maher 

When: Sat., Aug. 9, 8 p.m. 2014
Price: $55-$95
It's not uncommon for comedian Bill Maher to offend people—a lot of people, even those who might proudly defend his brash sensibilities. If you're an outspoken atheist and liberal on a large soapbox, upsetting people is par for the course. Then again, making a whole lot of people laugh in the process is also fairly common. Maher's most recent controversies stem from his flippant use of Twitter, like a "sacrilegious" tweet aimed at outspoken Christian quarterback Tim Tebow for blowing a big game on Christmas Eve. And though Maher may upset people by tweeting, "Dealing w/ Hamas is like dealing w/ a crazy woman who's trying to kill u - u can only hold her wrists so long before you have to slap her," his whole career has involved stepping up to "The Line" before obliterating it. For all the people who find him tasteless, there are crowds who find his trampling on cultural oversensitivity to be the funniest thing imaginable. (Jacob Stringer, City Weekly)
