Political comedian Bill Maher returning to Colorado for shows in Denver and Colorado Springs

The one thing you can never accuse Bill Maher of is holding his tongue. Over the course of his thirty-plus year career as a stand up comedian and host of political comedy shows like “Real Time With Bill Maher,” the 61-year-old has fearlessly spoken his truth, earning him legions of admirers and nearly as many detractors. Now, Maher has announced a pair of performances in Colorado where he’ll lend his comedic thoughts on a host of serious issues.

Maher will be performing at the Temple Hoyne Buell Theatre in Denver on Sat., May 26 and at the Pikes Peak Center in Colorado Springs on Sun., May 27. Tickets for the shows go on sale this Friday, Sept. 22; click the dates above to get yours right here on AXS.com.

If you’ve somehow missed his career, Maher first came to prominence in the ‘90s with his show “Politically Incorrect” on Comedy Central and later ABC. After losing his show over controversial comments, Maher took the leap to HBO, where “Real Time With Bill Maher” has been a staple of the network’s late-night programming since it premiered in 2003. A political independent who regularly criticizes both the Republican and Democratic establishment, Maher has also been a fierce critic of organized religion, a viewpoint espoused in his 2008 documentary “Religulous.”
