Comedian and political pundit Bill Maher tested positing for COVID-19, according to a statement from HBO.
The 65-year-old “Real Time” host, who has been vaccinated, is asymptomatic and feeling fine according to that press release. However, taping of Friday’s show has been postponed.
Maher’s diagnosis followed a weekly staff meeting where the test was administered. No other staff members tested positive, HBO said.
Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson was scheduled to be Maher’s first guest on this weekend’s show.
In September, “Real Time” became the first major program of its kind to bring back a reduced live audience, Deadline reports.
