Bill Maher is noticing a lot more conservatives among his fans.
Maher has been one of the most famous liberals in America for decades, and he’s become a refreshing voice of reason from his side of the aisle over the past few years. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
The “Real Time with Bill Maher” host has generated a lot of praise for calling out cancel culture and woke politics, and he’s now noticing conservatives are buying tickets to his shows.

Maher said the following on Joe Scarborough’s podcast, according to Outkick:
For the first time in my life, I am playing to a mixed audience. I was in Nashville about a month ago, and the audience was about 60-40 liberal to conservative. That never used to happen, never. And I think it’s because 10 years ago, in my opinion anyway, the left did not have a crazy section. There was no such thing as woke, and now they do have a crazy section, which I call out as a liberal. I think I’m kind of one of the only people doing that, so there’s a hunger to hear that.
You can listen to the entire podcast below.
As I’ve said many times before, I don’t think Bill Maher is becoming more conservative. Not at all. I just think the left has moved so far left that the party abandoned him.
Bill Maher holds very few traditional values. He’s a liberal guy, but he doesn’t think canceling everyone you disagree with is a smart idea.
In 2021, that means you’re now to the right of where a lot of liberals are.
Why is Matt Damon always in the doghouse with the online hall monitors of righteousness? He is one of the most likable guys in Hollywood, with impeccable liberal credentials. Yet always flailing around in cancel culture quicksand. #BureauOfWokeness #Wokeatraz pic.twitter.com/B9xdqqqbZO

Conservatives have always loved comedy. Anyone who reads what I write knows that, and there’s clearly a market for someone who stands up to cancel culture and talks about how fracturing America down racial lines is a recipe for disaster.
Maher is more popular than ever. Why? He’s willing to police his side of the aisle, which is something most people don’t want to do.
I disagree with Maher on probably 75% of the stuff he says, but I still love his show because he’s willing to embrace debate and differing viewpoints. In 2021, that’s as rare as a unicorn sighting.
Bill Maher absolutely destroyed losers in America who are too sensitive and political correct.
We need some more common sense in this country, and we need more people speaking the truth.

Something tells me Maher’s audience will only continue to grow as he continues to speak out against the nonsense consuming America.
