Comedian Bill Maher will ring in the New Year in Hawai‘i for the 10th time at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center.

This year, Maher will perform with guests Nikki Glaser and Christopher “Kid” Reid on Dec. 30 at 8 p.m. at the Castle Theater.

For more than 25 years, Maher has set the boundaries on where funny, political talk can go on American television. First on Politically Incorrect (Comedy Central, ABC, 1993-2002), and for the last 19 years on HBO’s Real Time, Maher’s combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him 41 Emmy nominations.


Maher won his first Emmy in 2014 as executive producer for the HBO series VICE. In October 2008, this same combination was on display in Maher’s uproarious and unprecedented swipe at organized religion, Religulous.  

Glaser is one of the funniest voices in comedy today. For more than a decade at clubs across the country, and as the host of three hit podcasts, she has been honing her shockingly honest, no-holds barred style of comedy.

Glaser also has executive produced and hosted two TV shows: Nikki & Sara Live for MTV (a female-driven pop culture sketch comedy show) and Not Safe with Nikki Glaser for Comedy Central (a daring comedic show that tackled taboo sexual topics). Her latest Netflix hour special, BANGIN, is available now. 


Reid was one half of the hip hop duo Kid ‘n Play in the 1980s and ‘90s. He transitioned into acting in the early ‘90s with the cult classic House Party movie franchise. Now focusing on his work as a stand-up comedian, he tours  extensively in addition to hosting TV talent shows such as Your Big Break and It’s Showtime at the Apollo. He also appears as a comedic guest on TV programs, including The Dawn and Drew Show and Comics Unleashed. His uproarious stand-up shows are billed as “Hip Hop Meets Hollywood Meets Marijuana.” 

Tickets are available online only at They cost: $229.50, $129.50, $99.50, $79.50 (plus applicable fees). This program may include adult language and content.
