“Real Time’s” Bill Maher stopped by “The Late Show” to talk to Stephen about [bleep], [bleep] and [bleep].
I think everyone criticizing Colbert should watch his other interviews too, he doesn’t interrupt as much and he didn’t in the first part. But from the beginning Bill was making personal snide remarks which aren’t needed if you’re having a intellectual conversation. I’m sort of glad Stephen stuck up for himself in the 2nd half. Either way, I liked the interview–it was actually really funny.
Stephen all of my love BUT don’t ever say Trump will win in Iowa & New Hampshire again.
Seriously, Stephen was a terrible interviewer in this whole thing. Interrupting ALL THE TIME. Terrible to watch.
That was some good TV right there.
it seems Bill believed him when he said they cut the feed 5 minutes ago. and that was what lastly annoyed him. no mention with “who da fuck is steve” that was rude..that was pretty much a sucker punch.
“Bill & Steve” on network television, HBO, podcast or something guys!
Thanks Bill Maher for reminding me that in 2015 we still don’t know if microwaves are bad for us.
A lot of people in the comments are taking a side on either Maher or Colbert, but honestly this whole interview was fantastic! I love a nice heated discussion by two rivaling talk show hosts. They’re both so different, but it leads to good television.
I love watching two of my favorite liberals have a fun time and throw sarcastic punches at each other.
How and why is dim-witted Bill Maher still a thing? All I hear when he speaks are the crashing of IQ points everywhere. Nobody mind you, can spew the obvious like Bill ‘Common Knowledge Is My Thing” Maher.
Bill Maher is like the Democrat’s Bill Oriley, has an ego the size of a ship, likes bashing other people that don’t concur and is never open to new thoughts (“I don’t use microwaves they are bad for you” is a very stupid thing to say to TRUMP an argument especially since the assertion is baseless).
love ehm both and respect both points of view..y’all keep making it do what it do Yo!
Thank you, Steve!
I love Bill’s response to ‘Pascal’s Wager’… both tongue-in-cheek and logical, I love that.
The weird thing about censoring both ‘shit’ and ‘fuck’ the same way is that it makes people hear ‘fuck’ regardless. In Australia for example they can say ‘shit’ on the 6pm news, so if you hear a bleep it’s most likely ‘fuck’. Censoring a late-night show so heavily is a strange thing…
Anyone notice Bill said “Thank you Steve” at the end?
That’s pretty fun.
This is the Beatles VS The Rolling Stones. All You Need Is Love VS Sympathy For The Devil
Both are great.

BEST.INTERVIEW.EVERR (or on Late Show atleast)
You can’t deny that the crowd was loving the interview.
This isn’t because of his views, which i feel are ‘mostly’ correct, but I find Bill Maher an obnoxious, arrogant, self absorbed arsehole.
I love Maher, but he was being a real douche in this interview. It doesn’t seem like he knows the Report was satire.
I like Bill because he’s not a nice guy. If that makes sense at all.
you know, I’m not a fan of maher but colbert is being a twat here.
Wait, why are microwaves bad O_o
Great job gentlemen! “Steve, you have to go on “William’s” show! Thanks!
To all those who say “Stephen should treat his guest right”: 1) The guest got the name of his host wrong, what the hell? and 2) Maher is making a living offending and criticising people. To be honest I’m disappointed in Maher, because no matter how goofy or stupid his counterpart is, he should be able to stay calm and talk rationally to him. I like Maher because he’s thinking in an academic way, I like his criticism of religion, but he seems to forget that emotions are not something to hate, but something to integrate in our life. Colbert showed what it’s like to be offended, to be flustered – as an expert in that regard, Maher should be able to deal with that.
This was pretty intense
I love Bill until he starts to talk about Israel.
this is enjoyable. I wished I was being sarcastic but I am not. the heated arguments? superb
this needs to be longer. There’s a bit of a frenemy situation here but I liked it. The chemistry was still there.
Colbert late night is shit!!! Not funny at all. i used to love the Colbert Report, but now Colbert is embarrassing. Plus Colbert obviously being a dick with Maher.
This was freaken hilarious! Love these guys!
Bill….the first rule of what to do when u are digging yourself into a hole is to stop digging
Bill nails Steve!
highly entertaining. best interview i’ve seen in a while
love how Stephen handled this cunt face
i could watch hours of this
Finally someone in popular mainstream media actually stands up to Bill Maher. And Colbert does it with humor and sensibility.
Woa, Colbert is a crazy christian? haha. Too funny.
Glad to see the whole interview. Bummer that CBS only aired a sliver of it.
Yikes, this interview was akward from the start. Colbert didn’t seem prepared for Maher’s answers and the interview kept loosing momentum.
This is a classic clash between the two comic styles, Bill Maher, who is kind of pissed off at the world, is cynical, and gets his laugh from insults and jokes poking fun at others (“Look at how stupid the Americans are”)and Stephen Colbert, who represents the classic American Comic style, self depreciating, Jovial, Inclusive, and applauds ambition and celebratory (“Look how stupid we are”)’ That is why Colbert and Maher can’t get along, they’re opposites in terms of their comedy and life outlook.But the end of the day, both are comics, making fun of things and trying to get a laugh. You really can’t choose who is right . But one thing is for sure, Colbert is just plain funny.
I think Bill means well, but he always seems very bitter. I’m a faithful viewer of his show realtime, but he’s had some very tense, hostile moments with guests just because he didn’t like their point of view. he has said before that he had a very sexless, lonely youth being 5’7 and awkward so maybe this is like his natural defense mechanism that he’s developed
This was tough. Stephen is the man, but he wouldn’t let his serious guest finish any serious sentences. It’s a comedy show I guess, but this could have been more productive I think if the host had handled it better.
“You’re not wrong, Walter. You’re just an asshole”.
-The Dude explains Bill Maher
Hilarious interview. Two great comics that feed on a little conflict and who are both quick witted. I don’t think either of them hate each other nor do I think this interview went badly because it didn’t. It was funny and that is probably what they both wanted as comics. YouTube comments and judgement probably aren’t considered by either of them. Bill is a less tolerant person but that’s part of his shtick. Well played by both. It was like watching a great tennis match.
“Intellectually embarrassing myths from the Bronze age!” Burn!
Could you please let the person you’re interviewing get a word in edge wise?
So fuckin hilarious ??
It seemed way more tense when it aired, this was much more laid back. Perhaps that’s why ‘Steve’ recommended we watch the full interview the show after
Please bring him back ever 3 or 4 months, especially during election seasons
They’re actually good friends.
They should do this every week! Great chat!!! :)
To me Bill Maher is an old-fashioned satirist. A guy who deals with serious subjects and masks his material as comedy. So, naturally, he’s trying to make his point across during the interview, which it’s impossible to do with Stephen interrupting him every two sentences. I liked the Colbert Report, but this new gig of his has become excruciatingly trivial and politically correct, just what Bill Maher hates.
Never really heard of Bill Maher, but he doesnt look very fun.
I think its nice that Stephen isn’t so shy about being a Catholic.
Bill just wants to rant, he really isn’t OK with anyone else talking. He wanted to get all the laughs himself while shouting about how stupid everyone is but wasn’t OK with Stephen telling any. I don’t think Bill is a particularly smart guy. He’s honest, which I appreciate, but all he ever does is pick flaws with other people, and he’s not familiar with the concept of he himself being wrong. It’s certainly very easy to imagine him as a smart guy, because he’s into political observation, but like he admitted himself, he simply doesn’t know how to be funny unless it’s dealing with republicans, who don’t really leave much joke left to tell by the time they’re done. Parodies of parodies never work. He doesn’t know how to empathise, can’t understand how other people are feeling, needs to be alpha male or gets uncomfortable, doesn’t have a strong vocabulary, and he doesn’t know how to handle himself when angry, which is often.
Wtf? Dude friends talk to eachother like this all the time. What kind of friendships do you guys have? “Hey Thomas, this is Michael. I really like you, man, wanna snuggle? Do you have my tampon?””
This whole interview was hilarious. I mean, I’m sure there might be some real tension between them as you all are saying, but the way they handle it is too funny for me to care.
Maher destroyed Colbert
best interview ive seen in a long time!
For an arrogant, self serving prick, I really like ya Bill, but man, don’t EVER go bashing on my Steve! (Not cool.)
Maher seems to be seething with jealousy. He is so pointed, seemingly demanding “respect” for what he perceives he started and Stewart and Colbert ran with and became superstars. Maybe Maher just wasn’t as good. That doesn’t mean he wasn’t good, but the vibe he puts off makes it feel like he’s feeling a failure by comparison and it is hitting a raw nerve.
I am completely LOL on naive comments that they are “really hated each other”! They are still GOOD FRIENDS! They are just have different and polarizing POVs! Just because they don’t agree with one another, and bantering violently (almost) with each other constitute “hating one another”. Such non sequitur nonsense/rubbish.
Go Stephen! Stick it to him!
I’m loving this
the “silly stories” and “myths” are not literal. they are allegorical and metaphorical and describe the ****history of thought and the faculties of the human mind****. Greek mythology makes that pretty obvious. Anti-religious people are too materially oriented and thus are ignoring a plethora of NON-RELIGIOUS wisdom in those “silly stories”.
For as awkward and tense as this interview was it was surprisingly very good. The tension had me laughing so hard.
This was the best!!
Wow Colbert is a terrible interviewer. Maybe he’s butthurt about the religious stuff?
Why is Steve arguing with him, couple weeks ago, Colbert said Trump will not win and now, when Maher is saying the same thing, he is disagreeing with him?
Well this did not go smoothly
I like what Bill was saying but felt he was a bit of an ass to Stephen.
I like both of these guys, and loved this interview. A little tension makes for good TV.
Wow! Steve one up’d Bill this time
Bill was making a solid point here and Stephen interrupted him…
I love how ‘Steve’ owned this interview. Maher does like to dominate the tone when he goes on his rants – but Colbert was like, ‘Nope – this is my show. It’s a funny show. It’s staying funny.’/
Umm …. the way I seen it Bill was trying to have an adult conversation and Stephen acted like a child. He kept interupting Bill to the point that Bill was pissed and rightfully so.
I could’ve had another hour of this interview. That was fucking hilarious!
I love Bill. But I got to admit: he was a bit of an asshole throughout this interview.
Two great minds and two great comedians having a great conversation
I think Maher thinks it’s his show where he has to have all the talking points. He couldn’t see that Stephen was just wrapping up the interview and had to wrap up his lame joke at the end that was going nowhere. His face at the end after they shook hands…priceless !
Oh man I have never laughed this hard over an interview ever, let alone on a talk show. The people saying they hate each other don’t seem to get that an intellectually challenging conversation between two comedians is guaranteed to be full of disses, jabs and the two poking fun at each other. I thought this was absolutely wonderful, and I’m so glad they uploaded the whole thing!
This is the first time I couldn’t stand Colbert. Maher had interesting things to say and Colbert kept interrupting with stupid jokes. What the hell Colbert?
Why does Colbert always provide a caveat with his faith? You either have or have not.
well that was interesting :D
for anyone who thinks they like eachother is dead wrong. Bill has taken shots at Colbert for comedic affect and you can tell Colbert finally got rattled over it.
i think steve thought his crowd would be booing this not applauding. I think thats when he got a little pissed off.
there is no hell stephen. show me proof.
Only a filthy liberal like Colbert would bring on anti-moral, anti-religion, anti-god, bigot like Bill Maher… AFTER THE TRAGEDY IN PARIS!!!
Colbert should be suspended!!
this is the funniest i’ve ever seen Bill, and the least funniest i’ve seen Colbert !
How i wish there was a Part 3!!! lolz…!
I hate Bill Maher. He’s such a condescending douche that holds his opinion so high that he doesn’t let others argue with him. He shuts people down before they can speak.
Both Maher and Colbert have difficulties letting their guests speak on their respective shows because their so opinionated. This interview is no surprise; constantly stepping on each others toes. Love ’em both, though.
Ah. Bill is a convert. That’s why he’s so bitchy about his atheism.
This interview was THE FUNNIEST THING I WILL SEE ALL YEAR!
