You know that this Friday night is a no miss event on HBO as the election post-mortem will fuel the feisty banter with Bill Maher and his guests on his long running chat salon, "Real Time with Bill Maher."
November 9th (Friday) sees Maher host James Carville, the Louisiana democratic strategist who is a delightful, fast talking pundit, as well as Andrew Sullivan, an openly gay conservative who also talks a blue streak. Both men love to laugh, so hopefully it will be more partisan healing than party fireworks.
Maher has also booked actor Samuel L. Jackson who may or may not whip his Bad Motherf*cker wallet out, we'll see.
Real Time with Bill Maher continues its tenth season Friday, Nov. 9 (10:00-11:00 p.m. live ET/tape-delayed PT), exclusively on HBO, with an instant replay at 11:00 p.m. following the live presentation. Allowing Maher to offer his unique perspective on contemporary issues, the show includes an opening monologue, roundtable discussions with panelists, and interviewswith in-studio and satellite guests.
The roundtable guests this week are political strategist James Carville, controversial eyecandy commentator S.E. Cupp and commentator Andrew Sullivan; actor Samuel L. Jackson is an interview guest.
Maher has been favorite of subscribers since his first special on the network in 1989, starring in nine solo specials, including the hour-long presentations “Bill Maher…But I’m Not Wrong,” “The Decider” and “I’m Swiss” (both nominated for an Emmy® in the Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special category), “Victory Begins at Home,” “Be More Cynical,” “The Golden Goose Special” and “Stuff That Struck Me Funny,” and two half-hour stand-up specials, plus the specials “30 Seconds Over Washington” and “Comic Relief VI™.”
He 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 latest book, “The New New Rules: A Funny Look at How Everybody but Me Has Their Head Up Their Ass,” was published in November 2011 and made the New York Times bestseller list. Maher’s 2006 book, “New Rules: Polite Musings from a Timid Observer,” also made the New York Times list, as well as bestseller lists across the country. He is also author of the books “When You Ride Alone You Ride with Bin Laden: What the 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 produced and starred in the 2008 feature film “Religulous,” the seventh most successful documentary of all time.
