Born in New York City on January 20, 1956, Maher was raised in River Vale, New Jersey, and attended Cornell University, where he earned degrees in history and English. He began his stand-up comedy career in 1979.
He also wrote and produced the irreverent documentary film Religulous (2008), a satirical exploration of major world religions. He has received numerous accolades, including 33 Emmy nominations and a Hollywood Walk of Fame star.

6. Jon Stewart Pelawak amerika
Jon Stewart is a big-time TV host who has been away from the limelight for six years. Last year, he launched a grand return to the screen with The Problem With Jon Stewart, but it was a ratings flop.
Stewart jumped into television in 1993 with the wildly popular The Jon Stewart Show, on MTV. It was his first talk-show gig, and he was being mentored by the self-anointed “King of All Media” Howard Stern, who warned him that the show was going to get canceled soon.
But it was also an incredibly important moment in the history of cable-television punditry. It was the first time a political pundit was able to take on a conservative host–in this case, Tucker Carlson–and actually beat him up.
The episode, which aired on Crossfire, was a cultural moment of triumph for Stewart’s fans: he had fought the good fight and taken on an old-school right-winger with the power to scare the daylights out of anyone watching. The moment was also the moment America started to rethink its relationship with punditry and began to take back control of its own political narrative.
But it’s worth noting that the same episode was a turning point for Stewart’s political enemies, too. It was the beginning of a nimbler and far more ruthless version of Tucker Carlson, now a cable-television demagogue whose brand of punditry has helped put America on a path to becoming a fascist nation.
7. Jimmy Kimmel Live Pelawak amerika
Kimmel’s show is a late-night talk show that primarily focuses on comedy. It features a monologue, sketches, celebrity interviews, and music performances. The host has a reputation for making jokes that are often satirical or snarky, especially during the Game Night specials.
The show has a very similar format to other late-night talk shows, and features a variety of guest hosts. It also has a live band. The house band is Cleto and the Cletones, who play the opening and closing themes and into and out of commercial breaks.
In addition, the show features a recurring game segment called “Generation Gap,” which pits a younger child against an older one to see who can answer a question first. It is a spin-off of Kelly Ripa’s game show, and is usually played between pairs of family members.
It also has a unique intro sequence, featuring Kimmel zip-lining through Hollywood until he arrives at the theater. The sequence was initially a stop-motion animation but has since been replaced by a short video clip.
The show is broadcast live on NBC at midnight ET/PT. This is a far cry from its competitors, David Letterman and Jay Leno, who have both been taped for years. In 2004, an incident with actor Thomas Jane prompted the show to go back to a taped format.
