Bill Maher rewrites the rules of podcasting the way he did in television in this series of one on one, hour long conversations with a wide variety of unexpected guests in the undisclosed location called Club Random. There’s a whole big world out there that isn’t about politics and Bill and his guests talk about all of it.
John McEnroe | Club Random with Bill Maher
Bill Maher and John McEnroe randomly riff on how Bill would go “John McEnroe” on bad comedy audiences in the early days, what happened to the one good linesman in tennis, what percentage of cops are good, where John once ranked on the “most hated man in the world” list, comparing Donald Trump to a certain dictator, getting real about Joe Biden and what John texted to Novic Jokovich about his decision at the Australian Open.
Adam Carolla | Club Random with Bill Maher
Bill Maher and Adam Carolla randomly riff on the war that is show business, how you know when you’re too high, how kids used to be scared of their friends’ dads, why messing up your kids ruins it for everyone, government red tape making life impossible, and the joke that Adam couldn’t tell.
Sammy Hagar | Club Random w/Bill Maher
Bill and Sammy riff on rock and roll excess, the upbringing and the heartbreak that drove Sammy to be a rock star, the technology that would have helped Bill talk to girls when he was younger, how to survive fights when you’re married, Sammy and Eddie Van Halen making peace at the end, and how Quentin Tarrantino put Sammy’s tequila brand in his movie.
Jimmy Kimmel | Club Random w/Bill Maher
Bill Maher and Jimmy Kimmel randomly riff on why Bill hates hockey, how Bill's advice could have cost Jimmy millions, the Conan O’Brien-Jay Leno feud during the late night wars, why Jimmy loves David Letterman, Jimmy’s high profile friends, and how Jimmy saw Bill and Jerry Seinfeld in concert when he was in college.
Adam Waheed | Club Random w/Bill Maher
Bill Maher and comedy creator Adam Waheed randomly riff on feeding the beast that is Tik Tok, how Bill creates his stand-up act, Bill teaches Adam about the ACLU and NATO, the process of learning things and Bill’s “Gazpacho moment,” a big reason for the conflict in the Middle East, and why Bill will never have children.
Howie Mandel | Club Random with Bill Maher
Bill Maher and Howie Mandel (new show "Bullsh**t the Game Show" on Netflix) randomly riff on how close Howie is to becoming Howard Hughes, the childhood trauma that gave him OCD, why Bill jumps on a trampoline every day, the impact of luck on a show business career, cancel culture and the war on comics, Howie’s first time on stage and the birth of his famous rubber glove bit, and saying goodbye to Gilbert Gottfried. Stay to the end and see Bill extend a very special invite to Howie.
Such a great podcast! Smart, witty, clever and idiotic all at the same time! One of my absolute favorites!!!! Fantastic interviews!
Like the show, but not everyone should smoke
Maybe rethink having people like John McEnroe smoke. He said he doesn’t, then his brain jumped out the window. It’s not great letting guests embarrass themselves like this.
It’s an ok show but Bill had to be really high to laugh at Adam Carolla. Although calling Adam a comedian is funny!
