Late-night provocateur and perennial appreciator of all that is politically incorrect, Bill Maher, will return to his stand-up roots for 11 dates starting in December. The tour wraps up in February just as the new season of his show Real Time With Bill Maher, now in its eighth year, starts. Love him or hate him, Maher has made his name as a controversial critic, poking fun at the body politic, religion, and mainstream absurdities in general. Fun facts: Hes friends with Ann Coulter, supports the legalization of marijuana, and has appeared on two episodes of Murder, She Wrote. Bill Maher will perform at the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater (1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach) Friday at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $33.
