Comedian Bill Maher revealed what he’s “most upset” about since testing positive for coronavirus after receiving the vaccine.
Despite contracting the virus, Maher said he’s upset about missing work in a tweet shared Thursday.
Thanks to all wishing me get well – hard to do since I feel perfectly fine, but I appreciate it! 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.

Maher’s show “Real Time With Bill Maher” announced the comedian’s diagnosis Thursday on Twitter.
“He is fully vaccinated and as a result is asymptomatic and feels fine,” the statement said. “Real Time production has taken every precaution following CDC guidelines.”
I feel for Maher. It sucks to get vaccinated and still come down with COVID-19, but at least he isn’t feeling any symptoms.
I love his response to his diagnosis though. He’s only upset about missing work? He’s such an animal. I hope Maher continues to be vocal about his thoughts on coronavirus when he returns to work.
