He is well known for the HBO political talk show Real Time with Bill Maher (2003–present) and the similar late-night show called Politically Incorrect, originally on Comedy Central and later on ABC.
Maher is known for his sarcastic attitude, Maher supports the legalization of cannabis and same-sex marriage.
He also uses his platform as a HBO television host to call out Republicans, but still, that does not dismiss the fact that his politics are still very problematic.
The group would discuss topical issues selected by Maher, who also participated in the discussions. Maher's remarks after 9/11 were not the first time he had sparked controversy on Politically Incorrect.
Politically Incorrect won an array of awards, including an Emmy Award for Outstanding Technical Direction, two Cable ACE awards for Best Talk Show Series, and a Genesis Award for Best Television Talk Show. In the same year, he expressed his deep regrets and apologized after being widely criticized for comparing his dogs to retarded children.
It’s time for black people to call him out, not defend him, because we know better.
Bill Maher spent his Memorial Day at The Grove with his lil swirlpiece. That must be why he thinks he can talk about people of color with such authority.
