Maher was born to a Jewish mother and an Irish-Catholic father, in New York City. Raised as a Catholic, he now describes himself as “half-Jewish.” The Maher family stopped attending church services due to Maher’s father’s disagreement with Catholic religion’s stance vis-à-vis birth control. Maher was only thirteen than and perhaps this was the deciding factor in his life which would later turn him a critic of religion! He’s a graduate of Cornell University with a B.A. in history and English.
Bill Maher started his career as an actor and a stand-up comedian. Initially, he began appearing on David Letterman’s and Johnny Carson’s shows.

Be it religion, politics, lack of acumen of politicians, lack of interest of the American people in politics, who-is-who of Washington, mass media, corruption, scandals, and political correctness, Maher has done them all. It is his candid and open views on different aspects of American society and his knack for speaking his mind that often cuts him a controversial figure.
