For more than twenty years, Bill Maher has set the boundaries of where funny, politicaltalk can go on American television. First on “Politically Incorrect” (Comedy Central, ABC,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 38 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 and unprecedented swipe at organized religion, “Religulous,” directed by Larry Charles (“Borat”). The documentary has gone on tobecome the 8th Highest Grossing Documentary ever.

In addition to his television program – which has featured such visitors as PresidentBarack Obama, Vice President Joseph Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, KerryWashington, Michael Steele, Howard Dean, Michael Moore, Eva Longoria, Drew Barrymore,Rev. Jesse Jackson, Gen. Wesley Clark, Susan Sarandon, Kevin Costner, Gary Hart and PatBuchanan.– Maher has written five bestsellers: “True Story,” “Does Anybody Have a Problem with That? Politically Incorrect’s Greatest Hits,” “When You Ride Alone, You Ride with BinLaden,” “New Rules: Polite Musings from a Timid Observer,” and most recently, “The NewNew Rules: A Funny Look at How Everybody But Me Has Their Head Up Their Ass.”
