New rules : polite musings from a timid observer by Bill Maher( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bill Maher is on the forefront of the new wave of comedians who have begun to influence and shape political debate through their comedy. He is best known not just for being funny, but for advocating truth over sensitivity and taking on the political establishment. Maher's combustible mixture of irreverence and acerbic humor has garnered a loyal following and 18 Emmy nominations, as well as a reputation for being a controversial bad boy. His HBO television show, Real Time, has put Maher more front and center than ever before. Particularly one regular segment, entitled "New Rules," during which Maher takes serious aim, bringing all of his intelligence, incisiveness, wit, and his signature exasperation to bear on topics ranging from cell phones to fast food to the conservative agenda. His new book brings these riffs and rants to the written page.--From publisher description
Religulous by Bill Maher( Visual )

34 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and German and held by 1,423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though fashioned as popular entertainment with laughs, light moments, and mostly humorous segments, Maher and the filmmakers are serious in castigating the body of literature whose influence on human history has been overwhelmingly negative. A globe-hopping Maher interviews various representatives of the Western religious faiths of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and Mormonism. If, as Maher states, 16% of the U.S. population identifies as secular humanists who don't believe in God, then that's a large cross section of the country whose voices are muffled by the status quo. It is to them, not believers, Maher speaks--preaching the gospel of doubt
