As with his previous show, Politically Incorrect, Maher begins Real Time with a comic opening monologue based upon current events and other topical issues.He proceeds to a one-on-one interview with a guest, either in-studio or via satellite.In response to Maher's offer, Trump produced his birth certificate, and then Trump launched a lawsuit after Maher was not forthcoming, claiming that Maher's million offer was legally binding. "He said it with venom." He has referred to himself as a "9/11 liberal", noting that his formerly liberal view of Islam changed as a result of the attacks on September 11, 2001, and he differentiates himself from liberals of the opinion that all religions are alike.Maher favors ending corporate welfare and federal funding of non-profits as well as the legalization of gambling, prostitution, and cannabis.The other two were nominations for two of his HBO comedy specials: I'm Swiss and Bill Maher: The Decider.In late May 2005, Alabama Congressman Spencer Bachus sent a letter to Time Warner's board of directors requesting Real Time be canceled after remarks Maher made after noting the military had missed its recruiting goals by 42 percent.Yiannopoulos subsequently resigned as an editor at Breitbart News.When asked whether Yiannopoulos's interview on his show was among the causes of his resignation, Maher concurred, saying, "As I say, sunlight is the best disinfectant.
Maher stated his highest regard and support for the troops and asked why the congressman criticized him instead of doing something about the recruitment problem.Maher and director Larry Charles teamed up to make the movie Religulous, described by trade publication Variety as a documentary "that spoofs religious extremism across the world". Also in 2013, Maher appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and offered to pay million to a charity if Donald Trump would produce his birth certificate to prove that Trump's mother had not mated with an orangutan.Maher said this reportedly in response to Trump having previously challenged President Barack Obama to produce his birth certificate, and having offered million payable to a charity of Obama's choice if Obama would produce his college applications, transcripts, and passport records.ABC decided against renewing Maher's contract for Politically Incorrect in 2002, after he made a controversial on-air remark six days after the September 11 attacks. On June 22, 2002, just six days after the cancellation of Politically Incorrect, Maher received the Los Angeles Press Club president's award (for "championing free speech").He agreed with his guest, conservative pundit Dinesh D'Souza, that the 9/11 terrorists did not act in a cowardly manner (in rebuttal to President Bush's statement calling them cowards). In 2003, Maher became the host, co-producer, and co-writer of Real Time with Bill Maher, a weekly hour-long political comedy talk show on the cable television network HBO.
