During an episode of “Politically Incorrect” in 1999, Bill Maher revealed that he was 5 foot 8 inches tall, according to Celeb Heights. However, there’s debate within the comment section of his page as to whether that is truly his height, with the average guess suggesting that the comedian is just under 5 foot 8 inches — and is actually more likely around 5 foot 7.7 inches. One commenter pointed out that in an episode of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” Maher looked around 3 inches shorter than Jerry Seinfeld, who stands at around 5 foot 11inches (via Celeb Heights).
Maher’s height seems to be a point of contention on other sites like Starsgab, who list the comedian at 5 foot 6 inches, which is dramatically shorter than what Maher actually said his height was back in the 1990s. Maher isn’t really outspoken about his actual height nowadays, so it’s pretty uncertain to say for sure. But on the rare occasion he does stand from behind the desk on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” it’s easy to compare his height to the guests that appear on his show.
