I'm a senior accounting major who enjoys breathing creative air. Here's a place to ramble on about music, art, and everything else life has to offer. I post a lot of Michael Fassbender, Andrew Garfield, and Ryan Gosling. Among other things :)
Feb. 21, 2003: First show. F. Scott Fitzgerald said, "There are no second acts in American lives." Well, HBO gave me one. I was back in my old studio. Even in my old office. Same staff. It was like nothing had changed … and yet everything had. For the better.
July 30, 2004: Michael Moore and I got down on our knees to beg Ralph Nader not to run for president again. Apparently, we were very persuasive.
April 8, 2005: Ian McShane from "Deadwood" called me a "cocksucker."
May 6, 2005: I asked ex-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright to sum up President George W. Bush in one word. She said: "Nuts."
Oct. 19, 2007: A gang of "Truthers" disrupted our live show. I jumped off the stage to boot them out.
Feb. 26, 2010: The panel discussion was interrupted by a surprise visit from my friend Chris Rock. He just happened to be in the building. It was like Don Rickles popping in on Johnny Carson.
Sept. 17, 2010: I showed an old "Politically Incorrect" clip of Christine O'Donnell admitting to long ago flirting with witchcraft ceremonies. You're welcome, Sen. Chris Coons.
Oct. 29, 2010: Two for one: I interviewed ex-U.S. President Jimmy Carter. Then, later, Zach Galifianakis pretended to light up a joint on the set and America fell for it. He's such a fine actor.
Aug. 5, 2011: I got sick just before the live show. My buddy Seth MacFarlane waited in the wings as I made it through the taping. Then I rushed to my dressing room to throw up. Seth sub-hosted our Internet segment, "Overtime." And now he's doing the Oscars. Ah, show business.
Oct. 26, 2012: I did a New Rule demanding to see Donald Trump's birth certificate to prove he's not an orangutan. Everyone got the joke except … and now he's suing me. Stay tuned.
∟ “Locating le mot juste to describe Bill Maher can be taxing…Maher’s loyal fans might label him provocative visionary, perhaps even prophet. Others—namely George W. Bush—might start with putz. We’ll just take the easy way out and refer to the host of HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher as controversial.”
