You won’t want to miss this week’s “Sunday Special.” For the latest edition, Ben Shapiro speaks with legendary comedian Bill Maher in an exclusive sit-down interview. 

Shapiro and Maher will share a one-hour conversation about the hottest topics ripped from the headlines right now, including Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Donald Trump’s 2024 plans, climate change, the pandemic, and how the Democratic Party’s woke politics are alienating Hispanic voters, just to name a few.

The candid conversation was filmed in South Florida, and will debut on Saturday, March 12 on DailyWire.com for Daily Wire members. On Sunday, March 13, all viewers can watch the episode on YouTube or listen wherever podcasts are available.

Maher is no conservative, but he says he became a “hero” on Fox News for his willingness to tell the truth about the “the small contingent [of liberals] who’ve gone mental.” The 66-year-old “Real Time with Bill Maher” host is known for being outspoken and blunt in his views, even when they go against the mainstream narrative.

The political commentator once called the former governor of Alaska the “c” word and made a $1 million donation to a super PAC supporting Barack Obama’s re-election, according to the Daily Beast. He’s deviated from his party’s messaging in recent years, however, and isn’t afraid who knows it. 

He shared on Twitter about how out of touch liberals are today, saying, “The median voter is a white person in their fifties who didn’t go to college, their favorite TV show is NCIS, and their pronouns are, ‘What? I don’t know what the f*** you’re talking about, and get away from me.’”

The fact that Maher was willing to sit down with Shapiro at all speaks to how unafraid he is of getting canceled by mainstream media. Last fall, Maher publicly invited Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to come on his show, but admitted that it would “probably never happen because Democrats don’t go anywhere these days where they’re not being adored.”

Maher has some hard truths for liberals and nothing is off the table while he’s talking with Shapiro, who was dubbed “a foe of extraordinary polemical agility” by The Washington Post and “one of the most influential people on the internet” by Time.

“The Ben Shapiro Show: Sunday Special” is The Daily Wire’s chart-topping Sunday program where newsmakers — ranging from political leaders and entertainers to media moguls and scientists — from across the political spectrum sit down for unfiltered discussions on the most pressing issues of the day with Ben Shapiro. 

The announcement of Shapiro’s interview with Maher comes as Daily Wire continues expanding its entertainment slate. Thursday brings the premiere of the comedy “The Hyperions” starring Cary Elwes (“The Princess Bride”). The superhero comedy is just the latest offering in a growing list of feature films on the platform.

Former “Sunday Special” guests have included Dr. Jordan Peterson, Joe Rogan, Gina Carano, Glenn Beck, Dennis Miller, Gloria Allred, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Neil deGrasse Tyson, Dave Portnoy, and Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL). Now Maher joins Shapiro to give his take on what’s going on in the world at one of the most tumultuous moments in history.
