Bruster, you need your eyes and perception checked. He was an easy 5ft8 in his prime if not taller. Not even that much shorter today. As per usual anyone 5ft10 and under and a celebrity, is thought to be a good few inches than in reality.

He's claimed both 5'9" and 5'8". Here he is will Martin Short (who was 5'7" or 5'8" at his peak). This video is from 1999 or 2000. Martin is playing Jimini Glick. Hilarious video btw. You can see that Maher was noticeably taller than Martin at the beginning (40 second mark) and Maher looked longer (taller) 15 years ago than he does today:

I have walked beside Maher, and he's not one 1/100th an inch over 5' 4'. I don't care what he says. I am 5' 10'. And I promise you he had on heels and was well over five inches shorter than I am.

Well I was interested in the list, and thank you. I am elderly (over 60) and I don't know who fourteen of these celebrities are. All are currently active, I notice. None is dead. When I search after a celebrity's height it is because I think he is unusually short or tall, or because I suspect he's lying about his height. Sometimes I'm interested in how tall an actor is if he has played a part demanding a character of a certain height, and I want to see if he really is that tall or short. I'll check the height of a talk show host so I can use him as a gauge in judging the heights of his guests. Otherwise I'm not particularly interested. I have lately grown to like and admire Jennifer Lawrence, for example, but I don't actually care how tall she is.
[Editor Rob: sometimes circumstances generate interest in certain heights...maybe people at awards shows or chat shows or films whose height becomes of interest.]

Actually, Dwerb, an interest in celebrity heights is not in itself hostile to short celebrities. I do not condemn a man for being short, but I will take a malevolent glee in catching him pretending that he isn't if he is. I am not alone in this, and I'll bet there is a lot of traffic to the pages of suspected height fibbers like Sylvester Stallone and Tom Cruise.

I would have guessed shorter. But if our editor Rob who is himself 5'8" says he's 5'8"- I have to agree.

He's 5'6" and has 2" heels. Bet on it.
John Francis Burglecutt said on 18/Mar/13
5' 5" bank on it
AA said on 16/Nov/12
I'd say he's my height flat. 5' 7.5"

this height obsession with people is ridicules.are people that insecure they have to try and find something they think is wrong with someone to make themselves feel better?or is it ignorance?the height complex comes from all the people making fun of shorter people so don't blame small people for something society pushed on them=truth.

it seems some are disappointed when they hear their favorite stars height?what does that have to do with anything?that way of thinking does not even make sense and if it does to you im afraid you have problems/insecuritys...

saw him this week, he looks quite different in person than on tv. 5-8 i is pretty accurate.

Rob, Are You Sure He Is Still 5'8" Barefoot. Or Do You Think He Is Only 5'8" Out Of Bed
[Editor Rob: I think near enough 5ft 8 is a good shout for him...out of bed over 5ft 8 flat]
Ken said on 5/Aug/12
He's probably 5' 8" but he has a short man's complex so people think he's 5 5.
Mike O said on 4/Aug/12
Saw him on the street in New York about five years ago. Not as tiny as I imagined he'd be. I'd put him at about 5'7", not more. A little bit better looking in person and his voice isn't quite as nasally. Walks pretty quickly.
