no it is not bad for the laptop but your laptop will probably go to sleep or some type of function of the sort.
if you plan to use the laptop closed you need to change the settings in your power management and manually choose "do don't" when lid is closed.
i close the lid to my laptop all the time when it's plugged into the tv or something.
let me know if you need help changing the settings above

Its only bad to do if your screen doesn't shut off. If the screen stays on it will fry your entire laptop.
the screen will automatically turn off when the lid is closed
