About Bill Maher

For the last 15 years, Bill Maher has set the boundaries of where funny political talk can go on American TV. First on "Politically Incorrect" (Comedy Central, ABC, 1993-2002), and for the last seven years on HBO's "Real Time," Maher's combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him 21 Emmy nominations. 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").

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."

Maher started 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 all across the country. Two of his eight stand-up specials for "HBO"-- 2007's The Decider and 2005's "I'm Swiss" -- have been nominated for Emmy awards.

Maher was born in New York City, raised in River Vale, NJ, and went to Cornell University. He now resides in Los Angeles.
