“Real Time with Bill Maher” came back to HBO Friday night to start its 13th season and I’m glad. When it’s off the air, I always feel like something is missing.
Of course, I don’t own a television, but the show is pretty popular and I can usually watch it on YouTube. That’s where I got that clip at the top of this post.
I remember Bill Maher coming to Cincinnati a few years ago to do his standup act. I really wanted to interview him and asked my editor at CityBeat to “throw me a bone.” He just kind of laughed and blew me off—a habit that he had.
My old editor is gone from CityBeat and now I’ve got a better one—in fact, an outstanding one. Why yes, I am sucking up a little bit. If and when Maher comes back to his area, I want to do that interview. I want that bone to be thrown.
