Bill Maher

From Kathy Griffin’s cringe-worthy photo-op depicting the fake severed head of President Trump, to Stephen Colbert referring to the President as “Putin’s cock holster,” 2017 saw no shortage of comedians willing to cross the line of decency, nearly derailing their careers in the process. Enter Bill Maher. In June, the comedian and political commentator shockingly referred to himself as a “house nigger” during an interview with Senator Ben Sasse on his late-night HBO talk show Real Time with Bill Maher. Drawing scorn from millions of viewers (some of whom called for his cancellation), both Maher and HBO issued an apology for the unfortunate gaffe. It was a rare moment of humility, considering the comedian has rarely apologized in a decades-long career mired in controversy. Drawing ire from conservatives and progressives alike, Maher continues at the helm of his long-running talk show and brings his stand-up routine, An Evening with Bill Maher, to the Majestic on Saturday.
