Some of the main sources for Bill Maher’s wealth include writing, acting, as well as comedy performances.

Bill Maher Net Worth $23 Million

Bill Maher was born in 1956, in New York, US. Maher graduated from Cornell University with a major’s degree in history and English, and right after finishing his studies ventured into acting, as well as stand-up comedy performances. Maher began his career as a host at a comedy club located in New York, called “Catch a Rising Star”. Maher then started making appearances on various television talk shows, including shows hosted not only by David Letterman but Johnny Carson as well. Maher also had recurring roles in a sitcom “Sara”, and several appearances on “Murder, She Wrote” and “Charlie Hoover”. However, Bill Maher’s career began to expand and encompass more appearances in 1983, a year when Maher debuted in his very first feature film titled “D.C. Cab” where he starred alongside Adam Baldwin and Mr. T. Some of Maher’s earliest television appearances include such movies as “Ratboy” directed by Sondra Locke, “Pizza Man”, and “House II: The Second Story”.

Yet it was in 1993 with the creation of a talk show about politics called “Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher” that Maher left a lasting impact on his audience. Maher was a host on the show that aired from 1993 until 2002, firstly on Comedy Central and then ABC. The show would revolve around Maher and his guests discussing various topics brought up by the host, and therefore having an interaction with each other. “Politically Incorrect” was initially an extremely popular talk show that brought Maher a number of awards. Bill Maher was nominated for Emmy Awards ten times, while the show won a Genesis Award for Best Television Talk Show, as well as an Emmy Award for Outstanding Technical Direction. Despite many awards and critical praises, the show was cancelled in 2002. The main reason for its cancellation was a remark made by Maher after the 9/11 attacks that was considered by many to be insensitive and created a lot of controversy. Even though Maher apologized for his comment, “Politically Correct” disappeared from the television screens.

After “Politically Correct” was cancelled, Bill Maher focused on other projects. In 2003, he created a new political show called “Real Time with Bill Maher” that proved to be nearly as successful as his previous talk show. Maher then worked as a political commentator on such networks as CNN and Fox News Channel, and made appearances on a show hosted by Larry King called “Larry King Live”. All these appearances contributed to Bill Maher’s net worth that amounts to $23 million.

Looks like we don't have Bill Maher salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1 Early in his stand-up career, Bill once opened for Diana Ross at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada (1982).
2 Is a staunch political supporter of Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.
3 As a youngster, Bill once worked at a branch of "Arthur Treacher's Fish & Chips" restaurants and stocked shelves at an A&P Store.
4 Bill's paternal grandparents were William Aloysius Maher, Sr. and Mary Agnes O'Toole; they were both born in New Jersey, both of them had Irish ancestry. Bill's maternal grandparents, Nathan Berman and Stella Fox, were both born in New York; Nathan's family were Jewish immigrants from Russia/Poland, while Stella's family was Hungarian Jewish.
5 He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 1634 Vine Street in Hollywood, California on September 14, 2010.
6 Holds the record for most Emmy Award nominations without a win: 32 (as of 2013).
7 Was good friends with Steve Allen.
8 Is a cousin of comedian Stubby Kaye.
9 Bill played Bob on an episode of Roseanne (1988). Ten years before the sitcom began, he played a character named Bob in the movie D.C. Cab (1983), when he was an up-and-coming comedian.
10 Very good friends with Ann Coulter, Arianna Huffington, Christopher Reid and Kato Kaelin.
11 Was a major supporter of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry during the 2004 presidential election. Though he traditionally supports Democrats, he threw his support behind Green Party candidate Ralph Nader (2000).
12 On June 22, 2002, he received the Los Angeles Press Club's highest honor, the President's Award, for "championing free speech". The award was given six days after the final episode of Politically Incorrect (1993), Bill's social-satire show from which he was dismissed for politically incorrect statements about the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center.
13 Received a great deal of bad press for his comments after the September 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center when he criticized the United States government. Subsequently, advertisers such as Sears and Federal Express pulled their ads and some television stations stop showing his program Politically Incorrect (1993). This eventually led to ABC canceling the show the following year. Commentators such as Rush Limbaugh, Arianna Huffington and David Horowitz defended his right to free speech and said that his program should not be canceled.
14 Supported Ralph Nader during the 2000 presidential election.
15 Received his Bachelor's degree in English from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York (1978).
16 Attended and graduated from Pascack Hills High School, Montvale, New Jersey (1974).

#Quote
1 The English are grownups, including their Conservatives, who enjoy a wonderful luxury that Conservatives on this side of the pond do not: they're allowed to be sane. They don't have to pander to creationists and anti-intellectuals. Only in this dumb country do Liberals and Conservatives argue over things like evolution.
2 [on Charlie Hebdo's death] Who did this? Muslim terrorists. This happens all too frequently. It's like Groundhog Day, except the Groundhog keeps getting his head cut off.
3 He was fast and furious, and I think there's something else behind there that you can't really quantify or define. You could just tell there was a humanity in Robin Williams.
4 Though America likes to think it's No. 1, we have to admit we're behind the developing world in at least one thing: their religious wackos are a lot more wacko than ours. When South Park (1997) got threatened last week by Islamists incensed at their depiction of Mohammed, it served or should serve as a reminder that our culture is not just different than one that makes death threats to cartoonists, it's better. Because when I make a joke about the Pope, he doesn't send one of his Swiss Guards in their striped pantaloons to stick a pike in my ass. When I make a Jewish joke, Rabbis might kvetch about it but they don't pull out a scimitar and threaten an adult circumcision. And when I insult Scientology, the worst that happens is... [the studio apparently suffers a power cut for a moment]
5 Sarah Palin says "I truly believe I will see Jesus Christ return in my lifetime", to which I say "Hasn't Jesus suffered enough?".
6 It doesn't sound crazy to us, that story [Christianity], because we're used to it.
7 [on his Johnny Carson] He was my comedy god more than any of them. Also, he's just a cool guy. When you're that age, it's the same reason you like James Bond. He has control. Girls like him. Everything I wasn't. You gotta aspire.
8 You know they're talking about 60 votes they need. Forget this stuff. You can't get Americans to agree on anything. Sixty - percent? Sixty percent of people don't believe in evolution in this country. He just needs to drag them to it. Just drag them to this.
9 I'm pro-choice, I'm for assisted suicide, I'm for regular suicide, I'm for whatever gets the freeway moving - that's what I'm for. It's too crowded, the planet is too crowded and we need to promote death.
10 The Pope is consistently pro-life, I am consistently pro-death.
11 Ladies and gentlemen, on September 11 2001, America was attacked by a squad of Saudi Arabians, working out of Germany, Pakistan and Afghanistan. And by that I mean, we were attacked by Iraq.
12 I think people hate us around the world because they perceive that we waste what we could share. And they're not totally wrong about that. We have a holiday where we stuff food into other food... I mean, Thanksgiving is really typical of how we think about third-world indigenous people. We celebrate the one nice moment we ever had with the Indians.
13 [on drug-troubled mayor Marion Barry] (He) promised to get drugs off the street, one gram at a time.
14 If you think we can solve the environment with everyone recycling, you're crazy. It's like saying World War II could have been won by everyone saving tin.
15 [To participants at the launch of the 2011-12 TV season] Thank you very much to the three people who applauded. It is really something to be back here at the job fair.
16 I got into some trouble with the Catholic League; not the first time, [they're] not my biggest fans; because I said in our little essay ending the show, I said, "The Pope," and I looked at it again, I looked at the words carefully, "used to be a Nazi." Okay, now first of all, it was a joke, okay? We were in a comedic context. I said, "He used to be a Nazi, and he wears funny hats, and ladies, he's single." So, right away, we're in the context of a joke, okay, and "used to." Okay, but, you know, you got me. The Pope was not a Nazi. When he was a teenager, he was in the Hitler Youth, which meant that he said the oath directly to [Adolf Hitler] and not to the Nazis, which is sort of worse! But, but wait a second, the thing that argues for their side of this is that, you know what, he was coerced into that. He was a teenager. I wouldn't blame any teen, he was a fourteen-year-old kid in Nazi Germany, of course he's going to do what they tell him to do. So, on that score, you know what my Catholic friends, I will never make the Pope is a Nazi joke again, because you're technically right, okay, and also because it distracts from the main point. And the main point I was making was that if the Pope instead of a religious figure was the CEO of a chain of nationwide daycare centers, who had thousands of employees who had been caught molesting children and then covering it up, he would have been in jail. And I noticed they didn't say a word about that!
17 It seems to me a very strange moment in our history to be pushing libertarianism. I said many, many years ago that I was a libertarian, like in the early '90s, and I've heard people say, "Well, Bill, you just really care about smoking pot and sex." Exactly, that's really what it was, you got me. But at this moment when BP, a private corporation, is ruining an entire ocean, when Wall Street private companies brought down an entire economy; isn't that a strange moment to be pushing for libertarianism?
18 One thing people don't often ask me is "What do you actually believe? We know what you don't believe." I mostly preach the doctrine of "I don't know." It doesn't trouble me that much that there are big questions that I can't answer. I've never been able to answer them; I never will. I just kind of let it go. "Where did we all come from?" "What's the meaning of it all?" "What happens when you die?" Who the fuck knows? What I do know is that it gets my Irish up, to beg the point of our interview, when people make up stories and sell an invisible product. It's such a scam. I just think people should man-up, suck it up, and just say "I don't know," instead of closing their eyes very tightly and insisting on believing something that part of them must know is not true. So when people say, "Yeah, but could it be Jesus Christ?" Yes, it could be. And it could be the lint in my navel. It could be a lot of things. I tend to doubt very strongly [the story of] Jesus Christ or any other story that just smacks of the kind of thing that primitive men would come up with.
19 The Founding Fathers were more deists. If you had to categorize them as anything. There was some sort of moving prime force. But it's an impersonal force. Some people call it Nature. Certainly not this personal god who you have a personal relationship with, who listens to your prayers and answers them, or doesn't. You know, not the silly stuff that most Americans believe because we're such a dumb nation.
20 We are a nation that was founded by people who were trying to get away from religious dogmatism and the authority of kings and priests. The founding documents are very vague. They talk about "the Creator" but nothing very specific - nothing at all about Jesus Christ. You'd think, if it was [to be] a Christian nation they would mention Jesus in the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence. That alone should tell you something. They [the religious right] try to take quotes out of context. Jefferson wrote that bible where he took out all "woo-woo" from Jesus; just left the philosopher. And he [Jesus] is a great philosopher. We can all admire the philosophy.
21 I want America to go towards the light! God, there's so many areas where it needs to be patched up and fixed. In general, I want to see America get out of the [Iraq] war, so that we have the money and the energy to do something else. I want us, obviously, to address the environmental problems that are becoming so frightening. The frogs are dying, the bees are dying, the glaciers are melting. I don't know what has to happen before the world takes notice. And, you know, America always bragging that it is Number One. Well, if it's Number One, it's got to take the lead. And it hasn't taken the lead, so why should other countries fall in line behind us?
22 Religious people don't need to be ethical, because religion is mostly about salvation. It's about closing your eyes, very tightly, and believing in someone so much, without question, that when you die he will save your ass. Religion is about saving your ass. And that ain't ethical. There's a million reasons I could give you as to why a religious person is less moral than an ethicist, but here's just one. Religious people think that animals don't have a soul - we're so sure people do - so it's okay to torture and kill and do anything you want to animals because there's some bullshit in the Bible about how we have dominion over them and they don't have a soul. For that reason alone I dislike religion.
23 I'm not even sure that they [Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert] are getting at the truth. I mean, just because you're on the side of the liberals doesn't make it true. People are lazy. And I'm talking about media people too. So they're very insecure about what's the right answer, and if someone with confidence gives an answer, and it seems right and people are applauding, they all flock to it. It's a sad state of affairs when the people who are supposed to be separating truth from fiction themselves don't know what it is. It's like having a bad teacher in school. If the teacher doesn't know, then the kids can't know. And if the media isn't up to their job in delivering the news then the people are not going to be well informed.
24 There's no greater model, in my view, than Jesus Christ.
25 I hate religion. I think it's a neurological disorder.
26 Republicans are always saying we should privatize things like schools, prisons, social security -- hey, how about we privatize privacy! Because if the government forbids gay men from tying the knot, what is their alternative? They can't all marry Liza Minnelli.
27 Kids, they're not easy, but there has to be some penalty for sex.
28 I saw this anti-drug commercial that showed a kid smoking pot in his dad's room with his friend. This kid finds a gun, the gun accidentally goes off and kills his friend. Only in America is the villain in this commercial not guns or bad parenting, but pot.
29 All I did was tell the truth. That's is what the whole show is about! And if Politically Incorrect (1993) has to go down for it, so be it!
30 We have been the cowards, lobbing cruise missiles from 2,000 miles away. That's cowardly. Staying in the airplane when it hits the building, say what you want about it, it's not cowardly.
31 I get the Playboy thing a lot. People assume I go out with bimbos. I couldn't go out with bimbos if I tried! I scare them off! The women that like me are smart. So I go to the Playboy Mansion four or five times a year, but people think I go all the time.
32 [when asked what he liked about the Playboy mansion] The food is out of this world!
33 [from a 1998 "Mother Jones" interview] My generation didn't face the kind of urgent, pressing issues that my parents did, who fought through a war and a Depression and know what suffering is. That's why Bob Dole had a tough time with this electorate. He was an old-fashioned curmudgeon who knew about sacrifice, and we didn't know if we could live up to his standards. But we knew we could live up to Bill Clinton's. He's more like one of us.
34 The cable TV sex channels don't expand our horizons, don't make us better people, and don't come in clearly enough.
