Kamaaina presale tickets go on sale Monday for Bill Maher’s seventh annual traipse through the islands, again with a New Year’s Eve show at the Blaisdell Concert Hall and a performance on Jan. 1 at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center.
As announced unofficially two months ago, Bob Saget will be Maher’s special guest this year, the third in a row in which Maher is accompanied by one or more fellow comedians.
Saget is best known for his work on the 1990s family sitcom “Full House” and its recent sequel series “Fuller House,” as well as for hosting the family-friendly TV show “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” but his standup act is far more adult-focused.
Maher is the longtime host of HBO’s “Real Time,” which features a different panel of guests each week discussing the current issues.
Though tickets go on sale on Oct. 13 to the general public, Hawaii residents can buy them starting Monday at 10 a.m. using the presale code ITMFA. The code will be good for online purchases only through 10 p.m. on Oct. 12. The general public may buy tickets starting the next morning at 10.
Tickets to the Honolulu show will run from $45.50 to $95.50 plus service fees and can be purchased at ticketmaster.com, (800) 745-3000 and the Blaisdell box office. Maui tickets will cost $79.50 and $99.50 plus fees and can be bought at mauiarts.org, (808) 242-7469 and the Maui Arts & Cultural Center box office. Both shows start at 7:30 p.m.
