Bill Maher To Appear At Traverse City Comedy Fest

Bill Maher is among the headliners for the Traverse City Winter Comedy Arts Festival, a project of documentary filmmaker Michael Moore that’s scheduled for Feb. 13-14 in Traverse City.

Moore announced Maher’s appearance on Saturday, saying that the HBO series host “will bring his incisive brand of political satire” to the northern Michigan event.

Moore says Maher is donating his appearance at the festival, “even paying his own way … because he wants to help out” the event and the region.

Also appearing at the festival is Doug Benson, an actor and host of the podcast “Doug Loves Movies.”

The festival will take place at The State Theatre, The City Opera House, The Old Town Playhouse, The Insight Gallery and Horizon Books.
