Bill Maher was born on January 20, 1956, in New York. He is a well-known American comedian and talk show host for his caustic political commentary. As a child growing up in River Vale, New Jersey, he idolised “The Tonight Show” host Johnny Carson.

After graduating with a B.A. in 1978, Maher became a regular in clubs across the country.

Maher’s career began when he co-hosted the Comedy Central show “Indecision ’92,” which provided irreverent coverage of the 1992 presidential election. His accomplishments paved the way for the 1993 debut of his own show, “Politically Incorrect.”
Due in part to Maher’s ability to humorously moderate debates between a rotating panel of journalists, entertainers, and politicians, “Politically Incorrect” was an instant hit. In 2003, “Real Time with Bill Maher” debuted on HBO. In 2006, Maher hosted the Internet talk show “Amazon Fishbowl with Bill Maher” on the website amazon.com.
