Bill Maher’s irreverent wit and fearless insights make him the perfect observer for these unpredictable times. I’m delighted that we can continue to offer an uncensored forum for his original and thoughtful humor.

Maher was the creator and host of Politically Incorrect on Comedy Central and ran from 1993 to 1999 when the program moved to ABC. There, the program ran until 2002. Maher joined HBO and renamed his panel program Real Time in 2003.
