Bill Maher will be ringing in the New Year in Hawai‘i at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center on December 30. To make this year’s 11th anniversary celebration extra memorable, Bill will be joined by two very special guests, Jeff Ross and Wendy Liebman

Now in its 20th season, HBO’s "Real Time with Bill Maher" is renowned for Maher’s honesty and pugnacity as well as his eclectic guest list. Maher’s biting and intelligent commentary on American and international political and social events has been honed over his lengthy and illustrious career.
Since his beginnings as a stand-up comedian in 1979, Maher has had a considerable impact on America’s culture and social consciousness. As the host of "Politically Incorrect" (Comedy Central, ABC, 1993-2002), and "Real Time", Maher has parlayed his combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs into 41 Emmy nominations. Maher won his first Emmy in 2014 as executive producer for the HBO series, “Vice.”
With commentary more blistering than Maher’s, special guest Jeff Ross has been crowned “The Meanest Man in Comedy” by New York Magazine. Known for his celebrity roasts, Ross has guested on dozens of television shows including "Late Show with David Letterman", "Jimmy Kimmel Live!", "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno", "The View", and "Real Time with Bill Maher". He last appeared live in Hawai’i at Bill Maher’s 2015 New Year’s Eve shows.
Funny since birth, special guest Wendy Liebman was honored as “Best Female Stand-up Comedian” by the American Comedy Awards in 1997. She has performed in person and on television in America and the U.K. Her television appearances include stints on Carson, Letterman, Leno, Fallon, Kimmel, Ferguson, "Hollywood Squares", and "America’s Got Talent". She has also starred in specials for HBO, Showtime, and Comedy Central.
