Best known for hosting HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, and previously ABC’s Politically Incorrect, Maher's combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs has earned him 26 Emmy nominations.
For the last seventeen years, Bill Maher has set the boundaries of where funny, political talk can go on American television. “Religulous,” his uproarious and unprecedented swipe at organized religion, directed by Larry Charles (“Borat”), has become the seventh highest grossing documentary ever.
In addition to his television program – which has featured such regular visitors as John Edwards, Ben Affleck, Robin Williams, Arianna Huffington, Alec Baldwin and Michael Moore – Maher has written four bestsellers: “True Story,” “Does Anybody Have a Problem with That? Politically Incorrect’s Greatest Hits,” “When You Ride Alone, You Ride with Bin Laden” and most recently, “New Rules: Polite Musings from a Timid Observer.”
