HBO announced the season 13 premiere of the award-winning talk show Real Time with Bill Maher on January 9th at 23:00 AST* in the Caribbean, simultaneously with the United States. Hosted live by comedian and political satirist Bill Maher, the popular program discusses current events in politics and the media.
Maher offers his unique perspective on contemporary issues, with a format including an opening monologue, roundtable discussions with panelists, and interviews with special in-studio and satellite guests. This Friday, comedian Chris Hardwick is the top-of-show interview guest, with comedian Jay Leno in the mid-show. Political commentator Paul Begala, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, and author Salman Rushdie are the roundtable guests.
Maher headlined his first special on the network in 1989, has starred in ten solo specials to date, and is also an executive producer of the innovative news magazine show “VICE,” which concluded its second season on HBO in 2014 and returns this year.
Real Time with Bill Maher is executive produced by Maher along with Scott Carter, Sheila Griffiths, Marc Gurvitz, Brad Grey, Billy Martin and Dean E. Johnsen; produced by Matt Wood and directed by Paul Casey.
