Animal lovers know animal abuse is no laughing matter, and outspoken, animal-loving comedian Bill Maher is no different. Last night at PETA’s Stand up for Animals benefit, the host of HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher kept the audience in stitches with his signature brand of sardonic wit.

Referencing both PETA’s legacy and 1987’s smash film “Fatal Attraction” about an affair gone wrong, Maher said, “Before PETA was around, you know, you could f-ck with animals any way, anybody, anytime, anywhere, and now you can’t. That’s a pretty big change in the world. That’s a big achievement. … Animals will not be ignored. They’re the Glenn Close of species.”

Hosted by famed character actor Fred Willard, the event took place at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles and featured some of the comedy world’s all-stars, including Glee star Jane Lynch, insult comic Jeffrey Ross and Modern Family writer Carol Leifer. Guests, including Moby, Olivia Munn, Pink, Carey Hart, Emily Osment, Chloris Leachman, Jorja Fox, Christian Serratos, Renee Olstead, and Elisabetta Canalis, noshed on vegan treats and laughed the night away, knowing their patronage helps PETA combat animal abuse.

    In the movie Fatal Attraction, Glenn Close’s character viciously killed a girl’s pet bunny by boiling. Also Glenn Close played Cruella Deville in 101 Dalmatians. I am a vegetarian (can never be vegan) & believe in humane treatment of animals but I don’t go to the extent PETA does. I don’t watch Bill Maher as I don’t have TV, unless he is a guest, but Bill Maher during the late 1990s hosted a show called Politically Incorrect, but so much of Mr. Maher’s views are politically correct such as his attacks on religion especially CHristianity, so much of what he says or said is politically correct.

    With their $23 Million annual budget, can someone tell me where the address for the PETA pet adoption center?

  • In my opinion, PETA is nothing but vigilantes who get away with bullying. They don’t tell me what to do with my money or my style. They deserve every harpoon thrown their way. And one day they will uck with the wrong person or people.

Going vegan must be at the heart of any environmental discussion.

The Impossible burger doesn’t need to be overtly healthy – it just needs to be vegan.
