Nom de naissance William Maher, Jr.Nationalité Etats-UnisNaissance 20 janvier 1956Bill Maher, né le 20 janvier 1956 à New York, est un humoriste, animateur de télévision et commentateur politique américain.
(66 ans) à New York (Etats-Unis
Animateur depuis 2003 de l'émission politique Real Time with Bill Maher diffusée chaque semaine sur la chaîne de télévision HBO, il a animé précédemment, durant presque dix ans le talk-show Politically Incorrect, diffusé sur Comedy Central puis sur ABC.
Il est connu pour ses prises de position polémiques dans un pays (États-Unis) où, selon lui, règnent depuis les années 1980 à la fois un certain conformisme et un profond individualisme au sens sociologique. Les thèmes qu'il aborde touchent à la politique, l'économie, la religion ou la société.
Maher has never married. Regarding marriage, Maher is quoted on his website as saying, "I'm the last of my guy friends to have never gotten married, and their wives—they don't want them playing with me. I'm like the escaped slave—I bring news of freedom."
In 2003, he began dating former Playboy Cyber Girl Coco Johnsen. In November 2004, at the end of their 17-month relationship, she sued him for USD $9 million for "pain and suffering" for alleged "insulting, humiliating and degrading racial comments." Her suit stated that Maher promised to marry her and father her children, support her financially, and purchase a Beverly Hills home. Her suit also alleged that she quit her job as a flight attendant and occasional model to be with him. Maher's lawyers in their response filed on November 23, 2004, in Los Angeles Superior Court said Maher is a "confirmed bachelor, and a very public one at that" who "never promised to marry [Johnsen] or to have children with her." Maher's filing stated that, after the relationship had ended, Johnsen "launched a campaign to embarrass, humiliate, and extort ridiculous sums of money from Bill Maher." Johnsen had previously accused another former boyfriend of rape and kidnapping in 1997, and the charges were later dismissed for lack of evidence. The lawsuit was dismissed on May 2, 2005.
In 2005, he began dating Karrine Steffans, best-selling author and former hip hop model. When commentators suggested there was a pattern to his dating because both his girlfriend and former girlfriend were black, Maher said, "People say I'm into black women. Robert De Niro is into black women. I'm just into women who are real, and they happen to be black."
From 2009 to 2011, Maher dated neuroscientist, science educator, and current Skeptics' Guide to the Universe co-host Cara Santa Maria.
In 2012, Maher purchased a minority ownership interest in the New York Mets.
In 2014, Maher was dating Ontario-born singer Anjulie Persaud.
