Bill Maher's Religion Documentary aims for Easter Release Date
/FILM - Natick, MA, USA - Bill Maher revealed to Larry King that the documentary he filmed with Larry Charles (Borat) might be called “Religulous,”  a combination of religion and ridiculous. The film follows Bill Maher’s take on the current state of world religion, which is clearly an Agnostic view. We don’t know much else, because, well - no one has seen the footage yet.

“I hope people laugh. We’ve shown ten minutes. That’s all we have so far, we’re still cutting it together. But the ten minutes we’ve shown, and I’ve seen it shown to audiences twice, they laugh so hard because the topic of religion

Maher in town for HBO special
Boston Globe - United States - Bill Maher is no stranger to live television. As host of "Real Time With Bill Maher," which returns to HBO Aug. 24, he tackles the latest headlines every week in his monologue and with his guests. So if something significant should happen between the time this paper hits stands and the time he takes the stage tomorrow night for "The Decider," his new HBO special broadcast live from the Berklee Performance Center, he won't be reluctant to talk about it -- if, he says, "it was a big story and it was relevant."

Maher can make it up on the fly.

Bill Maher coming back to HBO soon
Monsters and - Glasgow, UK - After a bilious summer so far of "Hey, Paula" and "America's Got Talent", I need the laser sharp thorn in the religious rights side, Bill Maher, my favorite misogynistic connoisseur of black strippers and weed to stir things up again on the tube.

Maher isn't for everyone.  But he is undeniably one of the few people with the huevos to keep it real (from his perspective) and walk his talk.  He isn't pandering and doesn't care if you hate his guts.

"Real Time With Bill Maher," his interesting HBO show is returning from hiatus on August 24th.

His show opens with a topical

Bill Maher, candid, caustic and courageous
Philadelphia Inquirer - Philadelphia, PA, USA - Bill Maher clearly loves to speak his mind.

But unlike other comedians, what is on Maher's mind isn't his bad date or his crazy mother. It's the bad government and crazy culture.

Maher said his penchant for dissecting the news of the day for laughs came from his family. "My father was a radio news guy in the old days of the staff announcements," Maher said in a phone interview from his Los Angeles home.

"It was always a part of our life at home. Unlike most American families, who don't discuss politics over dinner, we did."

Still, the comic and television host knows
