For more than twenty years, Bill Maher has set the boundaries of where funny, political talk can go on American television. First on “Politically Incorrect” (1993-2002), and for the last fourteen years on HBO’s “Real Time,” Maher’s combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him 41 Emmy nominations. Maher won his first Emmy in 2014 as executive producer for the HBO series, “VICE.” In October of 2008, this same combination was on display in Maher’s uproarious “Religulous,” an unprecedented swipe at organized religion. The documentary has gone on to become the 8th Highest Grossing Documentary ever.
In addition to his television program, Maher has written five bestsellers. Most recently, “The New New Rules: A Funny Look at How Everybody But Me Has Their Head Up Their Ass.”
Maher started his career as a stand-up comedian in 1979 and still performs at least fifty dates a year in Las Vegas and sold-out theaters across the country. Four of his ten stand-up specials for HBO received Emmy nominations.
Maher was born in New York City, attended Cornell University, and now resides in Los Angeles.
