Bill Maher Reviews
Anne & Donald Burke from Newport, RI
FANTASTIC, AS USUAL
I don't know why the reviewer from Vancouver said it was material from his show because it wasn't! I watch his show every Friday and have been to 8 concerts and it is always new and fresh. He may use the same terminology, but the show is new. Last night he was exceptionally funny and when he first came out he got a standing ovation, which usually doesn't happen. My thoughts on that is that we really, really needed him given what is going on. The concert was great and I will be going to one next year!!!!

FUNNY. BRILLIANT. INSIGHTFUL. NOBODY DOES IT BETTER!
Bill Maher hit all the political highlights in his concert last night. Some of it was familiar if you watch Real Time, but even so, it was still very funny. He makes you think after the laughter is over. And he calls out his audience when it's necessary: Never take your cell phone out if you are 3 rows from his stage and don't groan if you disagree with his comment. He definitely notices and points it out to all of us ("shut the phone off! It's rude!"). Intelligent humor that's non-stop for 1 1/2 hours, your face hurts from constant laughter, and you smile all the way home. If you are a political humor junkie, Mr. Maher is a must-see.

BILL IN VEGAS
Just finished seeing Bill Mahar at the Mirage in Las Vegas. 80 minutes of non stop barbs at many topics. Of course our orange baby as he calls Trump was a large part. But he covered sex, children and religion as well. So funny, small audience but standing ovation at the end. He was hitting on all cylinders. Terrific show

Had a a great time ! Bill knocked it out of the park. A good 90 + minutes. His planned new show live on HBO from Oklahoma City that will premeire on July 07, will most likely be the same show Atlanta saw last night. LOVED IT ! Can't wait to see him again live on HBO. July 07 2018

Anita Moore from Collinsville, Oklahoma
LOVED THE SHOW!
We had the best time at his show, topical and funny. I just wish he had been able to work in some more material regarding recent events with the investigation but still...no complaints! It was great to hear so many liberals cheering so loud! Not a single heckler in the crowd

BILL MAHER UNDERSTANDS WHAT WE ARE FACING BETTER THAN MOST
I sat near the front of the Mezzanine and had a great view. Not that you really need to see a comedian's performance. Maher came on 15 minutes late which was a problem as the seats are tiny with no leg room. I was squirming by the time he appeared on stage. The first part of the routine was slow and I wondered if he was stoned. However, he found his groove after that. He sent us a volley of Trump jokes and tried to help us empathize with poor Melania who is an immigrant "doing a job no American wants." I loved that he mentioned that hunters are total assholes. I know he is a vegetarian. Not sure how receptive Portland is to that, though, as the area is surrounded by hunting lands. I noted a few people sitting near me did not clap or holler when he mocked Christianity. I also noted that there was a bit of discomfiture when he mocked people who support Muslims and the MeToo Movement. The latter part of the show, Bill focused on jokes about penises and vaginas. Overall, I give show an A.
