    He was raised by a Catholic and a Jew. Face it!!!! If he had been raised by two Catholics he would probably be a priest instead of a comedian. Life's funny that way...no pun intended:

    He's a comedian?

    As a non-believer he probably does more to build negative stereotypes about us than any other american.

    He's basically a famous version of you.

    If at sentencing for a capital crime I were given the choice between watching Bill Maher and a firing squad my immediate reply would be 'where's my blindfold and cigarette?'

    Him being a comedian is doubtful.

    He isn't that funny.

    He's not a comedian that I can see, but I fail to see what his parent's religion has to do with that.

    I do usually get a chuckle out of your ridiculous threads though, so all is not lost

    I see no evidence that Maher would have ever been a Priest. Though I suppose that if athiests had priest, he would be one of them.

    As with any comedian that focuses on politics, whether you think he's funny or not depends on your political orientation.

    He claims to have been raised entirely catholic bud! Any why couldn't it be two Jews and him becoming a rabbi?
