HBO today unveiled plans for what will be the pay-cable channel’s 11th stand-up special starring Bill Maher, who first headlined a special on HBO way back in 1989.
“Bill Maher: Live from Oklahoma,” taped in Tulsa, premieres on HBO this Saturday, July 7.
In promotional material for the special, Maher is quoted saying: “The paradox of my life is, the more horrifying the country under Trump becomes, the more fun we have at my stand-up shows — I guess it’s a release, or whistling past the graveyard, or a primal scream. They want me to be mean, and I am. Half of this show is about Trump, but I am determined to make half of it about me — my way of saying, ‘Trump, you don’t get to win!'”
Maher also hosts the weekly series “Real Time with Bill Maher,” now in its 16th season on HBO.
Here’s a teaser for the new special …
