SONOMA COUNTY, Calif., April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Rick Bartalini Presents announced today that Bill Maher, Comedian and Host of Real Time on HBO will return to Sacramento for the first time in over five years. Bill Maher is scheduled to perform August 19, 2011 at Sacramento Community Center Theater. Tickets go on-sale this Friday, April 29 at 10:00 A.M. at www.RBPconcerts.com
For the last fifteen years, Bill Maher has set the boundaries of where funny, political talk can go on American television. First on "Politically Incorrect" (Comedy Central, ABC, 1993-2002), and for the last seven years on HBO's "Real Time," Maher's combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him 21 Emmy nominations. In October 2008, this same combination was on display in Maher's uproarious and unprecedented swipe at organized religion, "Religulous," directed by Larry Charles ("Borat"). The documentary has gone on to become the seventh highest grossing documentary ever.
Throughout his career, Rick Bartalini, Founder of Rick Bartalini Presents, has built relationships with the highest-level professionals in show business, brought HBO to the Bay Area for a series of hit comedy specials and presented artists such as Johnny Mathis, Lyle Lovett, Dolly Parton, George Lopez, Carole King, Steely Dan, Juan Gabriel, Sheryl Crow, Diana Krall, Ellen DeGeneres and Keith Urban. Audiences and entertainers experience his tradition of the finest artists, aggressive marketing and warm hospitality.
Rick Bartalini Presents is also currently presenting the Moody Blues on May 24 at the Marin Center in San Rafael, An Acoustic Evening with Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt on June 9 also at the Marin Center in San Rafael (tickets for both shows on sale now). Bartalini will also co-produce the 2011 Lewis Black Comedy Cruise.
Tickets for Bill Maher at Sacramento Community Center Theater are $49.50 and $69.50 and go on-sale at 10:00 A.M. on Friday, April 29, 2011. To purchase go to www.RBPconcerts.com.
