Left-Wing Comedian Bill Maher Coming to the BJC

For the last 21 years, Bill Maher has pissed people off or made them laugh — there’s not much in between. He’ll bring that polarizing iconoclasm to the Bryce Jordan Center on May 3 as part of a Live Nation tour.

Maher will do stand-up, but he’s best known for his roles on television. His show “Politically Incorrect” aired on Comedy Central from 1993-2002 and “Real Time” has been on HBO for the last ten years. The comedian also made waves for his 2008 documentary Religulous, which spoofed pretty much every religion. All in all, Maher has brought in 21 Emmy nominations over his career.

Tickets for the general public go on sale February 19 on Ticketmaster or at any of the regular BJC locations, starting at $35. Penn State students receive a significant UPAC discount to the tune of $25, and those tickets go on Sale February 17.
