Just for Laughs: Bill Maher knows his audience
The last time Bill Maher headlined at the Chicago Theatre, he had Ann Coulter along for, forgive me, balance. That, it felt, was a rivalry born in mutual expediency, a mock political debate for the 2009 Speaker Series. Just as Coulter's conservative bona fides have always been open to question — the extremes always being more lucrative for the provocateur — so was Maher's apparent antagonism toward her. More alike than either of them would have cared to admit, this odd couple surely were headed out together for a post-show drink to spend some of the suckers' cash, leaving everyone behind to scream at each other across the aisle.
