Storyline

Bill Maher, creator of the immensely popular late-night talk show Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher and host of the HBO hit series Real Time with Bill Maher, displays his celebrated, biting wit in his fifth HBO stand-up comedy special, Bill Maher: Be More Cynical. Doing what he loves most, stand-up comedy, Maher rips through a horde of contemporary topics, from the evils of big government to the bewildering power women have over men, and delivers a landmark performance that re-affirms why he is one of today's brightest and most revered comedians.

If you feel like killing brain cells
14 October 2002 | by d_greySee all my reviews

My header best describes this stereotypical dribble which is a poor attempt of comedy and "enlightment". I guess that if your looking for direction and feel that a downward spiral wound be the way you'd like to head. You might want to give this brainwashing commentary a try. Or you could try thinking for yourself instead of having your opinions spoon-fed to you. Go read a book instead, it'll be more entertaining and cereberal.
