Obama Super PAC gets $1M boost from Bill Maher

At the end of a live performance streamed by Yahoo! liberal comedian Bill Maher announced he would be donating $1 million to "Priorities USA Action," a Super PAC that supports President Barack Obama.

"My surprise tonight is I would like to tonight announce a donation to the Obama Super PAC–which has the very unfortunate tongue-twister name ‘Priority (sic) USA Action," Maher said. The show, titled "CrazyStupidPolitics" took place in Silicon Valley.

Before the performance, Maher tweeted that he had a "surprise announcement." After, he tweeted again: "Thank u everybody who's hit me up after the show, and a great San Jose audience. Obama donation was a surprise to Yahoo too fyi!"

In all of 2011, the Super PAC raised $4.1 million, according to ABC News.
