“Politically Incorrect” Comedian & Host of HBO’s “Real Time”
For the last eighteen years, Bill Maher has expanded the boundaries of where funny political talk can go on American television.
First on “Politically Incorrect” (Comedy Central, ABC, 1993-2002), and for the last seven years on HBO’s “Real Time”, Maher’s combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him twenty-one Emmy® nominations. In October of 2008, this same combination was on display in Maher’s uproarious and unprecedented swipe at organized religion, “Religulous”, directed by Larry Charles (Borat). The documentary has gone on to become the 7th highest grossing documentary ever. In addition to “Real Time” – which has featured such regular visitors as Robin Williams, Arianna Huffington, Alec Baldwin and Michael Moore – Maher has written five bestselling books.
Maher started his career as a stand-up comedian in 1979, and still performs at least fifty dates a year in Las Vegas and in sold-out theaters all across the country. Maher was born in New York City, raised in River Vale, N.J. and went to Cornell University. He now resides in Los Angeles.
