An Evening With Bill Maher

Description
For the last twenty-six years, Bill Maher has set the boundaries of where funny, political talk can go on American television. First on "Politically Incorrect" (Comedy Central, ABC, 1993-2002), and for the last twelve years on HBO's "Real Time," Maher's combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him 33 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"). It remains among the highest grossing documentaries of all time. He started his career as a stand-up comedian in 1979 and still performs over fifty dates a year in Las Vegas, and in sold-out theaters across the country. Three of his nine stand-up specials for HBO have been nominated for Emmy awards. Maher was born in New York City, raised in River Vale, New Jersey, and attended Cornell University. He now resides in Los Angeles.
