Bill Maher, (pronounced /ËˆmÉ‘É¹/; ) is an American stand-up comedian, television host, social and political commentator, and author. Before his present role as host of HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, Maher hosted a similar late-night talk show called Politically Incorrect on Comedy Central and later on ABC.
Maher is known for his political satire and sociopolitical commentary. His commentaries target a wide swath of topics: politics, bureaucracies of many kinds, political correctness, the mass media, and persons in positions of high political and social power, among many others. He supports the legalization of marijuana and gay marriage and serves on the board of PETA. He is also a critic of religion and is an advisory board member of The Reason Project. Maher is number 38 on Comedy Central's 100 greatest stand-ups of all time. Maher describes himself as a libertarian and believes that, "government is really there to do the things that people absolutely can't do for themselves"; however, journalist Dann Halem has questioned Maher's libertarianism, describing him as a liberal.
Maher favors a partial privatization of social security, ending corporate welfare, and legalization of gambling, prostitution, and marijuana. Maher is a member of NORML's Advisory Board, an organization which supports the decriminalization of marijuana, and is an open marijuana user. Additionally, Maher describes himself as an environmentalist, and he frequently alludes to the topic of global warming on his show Real Time. Moreover, he is highly suspicious of corporations and often criticizes figures with close ties to industry.
