In some ways, Christopher “Kid” Reid was returning the favor. After all, Bill Maher’s friendship had “encouraged” Reid to happily change his show-biz tune.
Reid, half of Kid ‘N Play — a successful hip-hop/R&B duo two decades ago — now is a stand-up comedian. He also co-wrote the theme song for HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” which continues its 10th season tonight.
“I have no complaints,” said Reid, a regular guest on Maher’s previous show (Comedy Central/ABC’s “Politically Incorrect”). “More important than money, I get a fair amount of prestige. I was more concerned about writing a really cool theme for Bill than making a lot of money.”
