In case you missed it because the announcement was made on Christmas Eve, Bill Maher, host of HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, will headline at the Traverse City Winter Comedy Arts Festival on February 14. The Festival runs for two days, February 13 and 14, and will also feature hosts Michael Moore, Jeff Garlin, Doug Benson and plenty more comedians over weekend.
Tickets, which should go on sale very soon, are promised to be more than affordable so everyone who wants to can attend, and some events will be free to the public. During the festival there will be many free family activities on Front Street between Park and Cass, including an ice skating rink and Ferris Wheel. The Traverse City Film Festival and National Cherry Festival once again are combining efforts to create the outdoor venue.
Bill Maher is donating his time at the festival for free and coming to Traverse City at his own expense. Like the Traverse City Film Festival, the comedy festival promises to be a great time for comedy and family entertainment, whether outdoors or indoors.
