HBO's Friday night political salon "Real Time with Bill Maher" is back for a new episode, with Maher's pal Chris Rock, who barged in on Adam Carolla's Real Time segment a few weeks back.
Maher's show continues its eighth season Friday, April 9 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO, with an instant replay at 11:00 p.m. The format allows Maher to offer his unique perspective on contemporary issues, the show includes an opening monologue, roundtable discussions with panelists, and interviews with in-studio and satellite guests.
The interview guests this week are musician Billie Joe Armstrong, comedian Chris Rock and chef Alice Waters.
The conversation runs the gamut from hot political topics to religion, children to animal rights, as Maher weaves a tight discussion that veers into comedic moments, and culminates with "New Rules," an always humorous wrap up of what is grinding Maher's writer's gears..
Maher was the creator and host of “Politically Incorrect,” which was produced by HBO Downtown Productions and debuted on Comedy Central in 1993. The series moved to ABC in 1997 and ran through 2002.
His most recent book, “New Rules: Polite Musings from a Timid Observer,” made the New York Times best seller list, as well as best seller lists across the country. He is also author of the books “When You Ride Alone You Ride with Bin Laden: What Government Should Be Telling Us to Help Fight the War on Terrorism,” “Does Anybody Have a Problem with That? The Best of Politically Incorrect” and the novel “True Story.” Maher also starred in the 2008 feature film “Religulous,” the seventh most successful documentary of all time.
