Bill Maher
Comedian, political commentator, and former Broadway star Bill Maher will play the Orleans Showroom in Las Vegas, July 3-5, with performances at 8 pm, while comedian and impersonator Dana Carvey will play the Orleans July 24-27.

Maher is best known for his sharp political satire and sociopolitical commentary, as seen in such television shows as Politically Incorrect (which first aired on Comedy Central before moving to ABC), and HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher. In 2003, he starred on Broadway in the solo show, Bill Maher: Victory Begins at Home.

Carvey burst onto the national scene as a cast member on Saturday Night Live, gaining fame for a wide stable of characters, including "Church Lady," "Hanz" (of "Hanz & Franz), "Grumpy Old Man," and Garth Algar, the faithful sidekick of Wayne Campbell on Wayne's World. He's also known for his impersonations of numerous real-world figures as well, particularly former President George H.W. Bush and former presidential candidate Ross Perot.
