HBOâ€™s Real Time with Bill Maherâ€™s irreverent and outspoken host aims to get South Florida talking. For the last 18 years, Bill Maher has set 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 HBOâ€™s Real Time, Maherâ€™s combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him 27 Emmy nominations.
In October of 2008, this same combination was on display in Maherâ€™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 his television program â€“ which has featured such regular visitors as John Edwards, Ben Affleck, Robin Williams, Arianna Huffington, Alec Baldwin and Michael Moore â€“ Maher has written four bestsellers: True Story, Does Anybody Have a Problem with That? Politically Incorrectâ€™s Greatest Hits, When You Ride Alone, You Ride with Bin Laden, New Rules: Polite Musings from a Timid Observer and most recently, The New New Rules: A Funny Look at How Everybody But Me Has Their Head Up Their Ass.
Maher began his career as a stand-up comedian in 1979, and still performs at least 50 dates a year in Las Vegas and in sold-out theaters across the country. Two of his nine stand-up specials for HBO â€“ 2007â€™s The Decider and 2005â€™s Iâ€™m Swiss â€“ have been nominated for Emmy awards. Maherâ€™s most recent stand-up special for HBO was the hilarious.
His stand-up special, CrazyStupidPolitics LIVE! from Silicon Valley was streamed live on Yahoo.com earlier this year.
Real Time with Bill Maher returns from hiatus for the second half of its 10th season on August 17.
Maher was born in New York City, raised in River Vale, N.J. and went to Cornell University. He now resides in Los Angeles.
