Bill Maher's NY Comedy Extravaganza
There are no longer any performances available for this show.
The tradition continues! For the ninth year in a row, Bill Maher will be ringing in the New Year in Hawaii! Making the celebration extra special this year, Bill will be joined by special guest comedians, Sarah Silverman and Bobby Slayton.
After sold-out shows for the past eight years, Maher continues to make good on his promise to be the “Don Ho of New Year’s.”
Bill Maher began his career as a stand-up comedian and still performs sold-out dates across the country. But he may be best known for his television programming, which has never held back and has set the boundaries of where funny and political talk can go on American television. First on Politically Incorrect (Comedy Central, ABC, 1993-2002) and for the last 10 years on HBO’s Real Time, Maher’s combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs has earned him 34 Emmy nominations; winning his first in 2014 as the Executive Producer for HBO’s Vice. In 2008, he wrote and starred in Religulous directed by Larry Charles (Borat). The documentary about religions around the world went on to become the eighth highest-grossing documentary ever.
Sarah Silverman is a two-time Emmy Award winner and one of the most versatile talents in entertainment. She is perhaps best known as creator, executive producer, and host of the Emmy-nominated weekly topical talk series I Love You, America, which streamed on Hulu. The series earned nominations at the Emmy Awards and Writers Guild Awards. In May 2017, she released her latest standup special A Speck of Dust on Netflix, which culminated in two Emmy Award nominations and a Grammy Award nomination.
Bobby Slayton, often referred to as “The Pitbull of Comedy”, has been performing his own intense style of stand-up comedy for over 30 years, becoming one of the best known, respected, and energetic comics working today. Audiences around the country may recognize Bobby from his scene-stealing roles in movies such as Get Shorty, Ed Wood, Bandits and Dreamgirls. He’s been seen on dozens of television shows including The Tonight Show, Politically Incorrect and in Woody Allen’s Amazon TV project Crisis in Six Scenes.
