Why see Bill Maher?

Unflinching and unflustered

Bill Maher has set the boundaries of political humor on what is just about allowed on American television, yet still manages to push the envelope on a frequent basis. His combination of unflinching honesty and blunt observations have earned him a staggering 23 Emmy nominations and a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame.

Particularly known for his hugely critical views on religion, Maher's humor squares to the left of center, and has more often than not set his crosshairs on the right-wing political movement (particularly the Tea Party), and shows vociferous support for universal health care, same-sex marriage and environmentalism. However, since the events of 9/11, he has supported racial profiling at transport hubs and is a supporter of gun rights.

As well as his long-running television panel show Real Time With Bill Maher, he is still a keen participant on the political comedy circuit, often performing over 60 dates per year.

About last night at Eccles

Bill Maher, Thank you! Thank you for coming to Salt Lake! I needed to laugh so hard I almost cried. You were the perfect evening in a wonderfully imperfect world. I am a Berkeley born and raised native but because the universe has a sense of humor and I have a great career Salt Lake has been home for 33 years, thanks for visiting! I never spawned either and glad I'm not the only one who thinks that's cool and it would be great if both from runners keeled. Money well spent thank you! ... Read more

Worth the Wait!

Bill Maher did not disappoint. I have been a fan since Politically Incorrect, and he is the best! We never miss his show, and it was wonderful to see him live. We appreciated how he handled hecklers. I also appreciate his authenticity, intelligence, and wicked sense of humor. We look forward to seeing him again in the future. ... Read more


Even better in person

I’ve watched Real Time with Bill Maher since I was a teenager and I love the show. Seeing him live was even better. He delivered blunt commentary with humor and wit. The laughs kept coming and he really connected with the audience. I would totally see him again. Thanks for over 20 years of brilliant honest sarcasm. ... Read more
