When it comes to religion, comedian Bill Maher is clearly a man of many opinions, or lack there of and is not afraid to loudly express why he thinks your religion is a crock of bleep! Maher readies himself to "debunk the man behind the curtain" and hilariously explores this not-so hilarious topic by hitting the streets Borat-style to get some insight into what everybody believes in and why in his new film, Religulous.
To kick off the October 3rd release of Maher's film, some of the funniest faces in New York gathered yesterday afternoon for lunch at Brasserie Ruhlmann. Bill Maher's pals included Joy Behar, Caroline Rhea, Kathleen Turner, Debra Winger, Steve Guttenberg, Jeneane Garofalo, Liz Smith, Caroline Hirsch, Bob Balaban, Nora Ephron, and the ever-so controversial Tatum O'Neal.
