Comedian Bil Maher comes back to stage this August

Bill Maher, one of the biggest names in the world of comedy, is bringing his stand-up routine to The Blue Loon in Fairbanks in August.

Maher is the host of HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” an Emmy-nominated program heavy on politics and current events that skewers both sides of the political spectrum while poking fun at pop culture, religion and the media.t

Maher he’s known for his slaying of politicians and the goings-on in Congress. He started his career as a stand-up comedian in 1979 and still considers stand-up to be his true passion. “I think Fairbanks is very fortunate to get someone of his caliber and stature,” said Adam Wool, manager and owner of The Blue Loon. “Granted, he’s not for everyone, and he is a polarizing figure. But from what I understand, his routine is very much a ‘stand-up’ routine, not a political rant. I do think his comedy is political at times, but if you’ve seen some of his HBO comedy specials, he’s much like other stand-up comedians looking for laughs.”

Three of Maher’s last nine stand-up specials for HBO have been nominated for Emmy awards, and his “Real Time” show has been nominated for 23 Emmys. His TV program has featured such regular guests as John Edwards, Ben Affleck, Robin Williams, Arianna Huffington, Alec Baldwin and Michael Moore. Maher is also an author. He has written five bestsellers.

Maher’s show is an outdoor show for Age 21 and up.

He performs is Alaska on Aug. 23 in Fairbanks and Aug. 24 in Anchorage. Tickets for the Aug. 23 performance are on sale at
