Maher is also an executive producer of the innovative news magazine show "VICE," which returns for its second season March 14 on HBO.

Politico has hailed Maher as "a pugnacious debater and a healthy corrective to the claptrap of cable news," while Variety noted, "There may not be a more eclectic guest list on all of television."

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 last 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.
