Bill Maher To Interview Herman Cain On 'Real Time'

It's been announced that Bill Maher will interview former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain on the Season 10 premiere of "Real Time With Bill Maher" (Fri., 10 p.m. EST on HBO).

HBO revealed Cain as a late addition to the guest roster, which includes as round-table guests commentator David Frum, director Rob Reiner and Fla. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Documentary film-maker and writer Alexandra Pelosi will be Maher's other interview guest.

Maher mined pure comedy gold during his scathing coverage of Cain's bid for the GOP 2012 presidential nomination and the sex scandal that derailed his political ambitions.

He mocked Cain -- and his choice of head wear -- mercilessly on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" back in November, and last night on "Chelsea Lately" he and host Chelsea Handler rued the day Cain withdrew from the race. (For the record, Maher says Rick Santorum is now the most hilarious candidate in the GOP field.)

Catch Maher's interview with Cain on the Season 10 premiere of "Real Time With Bill Maher," Friday, January 13 at 10 p.m. EST on HBO.
