New, 2 comments

Starting now, we've enlisted comedians, some based here and others who spend their time on the road and come through Vegas, to share their recommendations on great places to dine in Sin City for a feature dubbed Comedian Confidential.

So you probably already know Bill Maher, who is not just a comedian, but a pretty swift on his feet political commentator. He not only had Politically Incorrect and now Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, but now he has a residency at the Pearl at the Palms. His next Vegas stop is this Saturday and Sunday at 8 p.m., with tickets on sale at 702-944-3200. He returns Sept. 6-7 and Nov. 2-3. Here, Maher takes some time out of his schedule to talk a little bit about almost missing dinner with Jerry Seinfeld and hedges shaped like "well-formed strippers."

Where do you like to dine when you're in Las Vegas?
Here's the thing. I do like to go out. I just don't remember the names of places.

I know I once ate at The Palm. Two years ago, Jerry Seinfeld was in there at the same time and he said we should meet after the show. I went to the Palms hotel. He calls me. "Where are you?" "I'm here." "So am I." It took us about 10 minutes to figure out I was at the Palms and he was at The Palm.

I definitely remember that time.

I ate at a really good fish place. That really helps you, doesn't it?

I've stayed at all the different hotels.

Oh, last time I was there I ate at a place in the Palms. There were these trimmed hedges. They were trimmed like strippers, well-formed ladies. I remember thinking, "Only in Vegas."

Whatever the restaurant was, that was terrific. The restaurant with the tit hedges.

Editor's Note: Maher is referring to the Garden Room at Nove Italiano at the Palms.
