[ # ] Bill Maher misses his first show in 28 years after testing positive for COVID-19
May 13th, 2021 under Coronavirus, HBO Max

Bill Maher has been on the air for 28 years, and he has never missed a scheduled episode until now. That is because the host of Real Time tested positive for COVID-19 even though he is vaccinated.

“Thanks to all wishing me to get well – hard to do since I feel perfectly fine, but I appreciate it,” he wrote. “Most upset about ending my streak going back to 1993 of never missing a Politically Incorrect or Real Time episode. Oh well, even Cal Ripken had to sit one out at some point.”

Even though he is asymptomatic, HBO canceled the episode as a precaution. “Real Time production has taken every precaution following COVID CDC guidelines. No other staff or crew members have tested positive at this time. The show will be rescheduled at a later date,” an HBO spokeswoman told Deadline.

I don’t even want to imagine what his first monologue back will be like. He probably will be even more skeptical about coronavirus which is something we do not need.
