First on Politically Incorrect, and for the last seven years on HBO's Real Time, Maher's combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him twenty-one Emmy nominations. In October of 2008, this same combination was on display in Maher's uproarious and unprecedented swipe at organized religion, Religulous. The documentary has gone on to become the 7th Highest Grossing Documentary ever.
