Comedian and late-night host Bill Maher announces show in Vancouver next spring

Dec 9 2019, 1:03 pm

With a career that has spanned over two decades, Emmy-award winning comedian and late-night show host Bill Maher is set to perform in Vancouver next spring.

Most widely-known as the host of HBO’s Real Time, Maher will take the stage at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on Saturday, May 16, 2020.

First on Politically Incorrect (Comedy Central, ABC, 1993-2002), and for the last fourteen years on HBO’s Real Time, Maher’s combination of unflinching honesty, controversial opinions, and big laughs have garnered him 41 Emmy nominations.

Maher won his first Emmy in 2014 as executive producer for the HBO series, VICE. In October of 2008, this same combination was on display in Maher’s uproarious and unprecedented swipe at organized religion, Religulous, directed by Larry Charles (Borat).

The documentary has gone on to become the eighth highest-grossing documentary ever.

In addition to his television program — which has featured such visitors as Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kerry Washington, Michael Steele, Michael Moore, Eva Longoria, Drew Barrymore, Susan Sarandon, Kevin Costner, and Pat Buchanan – Maher has written five bestsellers.

He started his career as a stand-up comedian in 1979, and still performs at least 50 dates a year in Las Vegas and in theatres all across the country.

Four of his ten stand-up specials for HBO – 2014’s Bill Maher: Live from DC, 2007’s The Decider, 2005’s I’m Swiss, as well as the hilarious, Bill Maher … But I’m Not Wrong, – have been nominated for Emmy awards.

Tickets to Maher’s Vancouver show go on sale this Friday, December 13.
