Bill Maher is one of the most politically astute comedians in America today. His unflinching honesty and commitment to never pulling a punch have garnered him the respect and admiration of millions of fans. In 2003, Maher launched Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, a network that’s a perfect fit for his irreverent style.
Real Time with Bill Maher has received multiple Emmy nominations as well as nominations from the Writers’ Guild of America and Producers’ Guild of America. Some of the outstanding guests who have appeared on the show include George Clooney, Howard Dean, Michael Moore, Robin Williams, Drew Barrymore, Dan Rather, John Legend, Bradley Whitford, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Gen. Wesley Clark, Susan Sarandon, Kevin Costner, Gary Hart, Pat Buchanan, Ben Affleck, John Edwards and George Carlin. Each week, Maher’s hilarious opening monologue, incisive interviews and stimulating panel discussion, as well as his extremely popular “New Rules” segment, serve to wrap up the week’s most important events in a way that makes you think, as well as laugh.
The “New Rules” segment proved so popular, that Bill adapted it into a book, New Rules: Polite Musings from a Timid Observer. The book spent nearly three months on The New York Times bestseller list. Some of the best “New Rules” have been put together and are currently available on DVD. The audio book of New Rules received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Spoken Word Album.
Currently, Maher is in production with critically acclaimed director Larry Charles (Borat) on a documentary that examines religion. The still untitled project has already garnered much buzz at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. The documentary will take a deep look at the presence of religion in some of the major news stories in recent years, and religion's effect on society as a whole.
Bill recently hosted Amazon Fishbowl with Bill Maher, a 30-minute program featuring live performances by renowned musicians and thought-provoking interviews with authors, directors and actors that was shown on the Amazon.com homepage.
In 1993, Maher created Politically Incorrect where he brought together some of the most interesting politicians, entertainers, and journalists to participate in some of the most controversial, topical and comical discussions. Winners of four CableACE Awards, Maher and his program grew in popularity year to year, eventually capturing the post-Nightline time slot. Politically Incorrect survived for five years on ABC and concluded its run in 2002, having received a total of 18 Emmy nominations.
Maher, inspired by the show’s success, assembled some of Politically Incorrect’s most memorable highlights in his book Does Anybody Have a Problem with That? Politically Incorrect’s Greatest Hits.
Maher’s book, When you ride ALONE you ride with bin Laden is a useful and hilarious guide for the many Americans who want to help the war effort, but are at a loss as to how. A combination of 33 new posters, as well as several classics from our government’s archives, and text by Maher, it helps Americans make the connections between what we do and how it can help our troops and ourselves. In conjunction with the book’s release, Maher went on a nationwide stand-up tour and drew standing ovations for his hilarious routine which utilized the posters from the book to illustrate his commentary.
Maher’s credits include numerous HBO specials, including the critically acclaimed Bill Maher: Be More Cynical and most recently, the Emmy nominated I’m Swiss. Maher’s newest HBO special, Bill Maher: The Decider aired in 07. He received a Tony nomination for the three-week run of his one-man Broadway show “Victory Begins at Home.” To book political comedian Bill Maher call Executive Speakers Bureau 901-754-9404.
