make sure to get the DVD!

Released a mere couple months after President Bush declared that "major combat operations in Iraq have ended", Bill Maher brought his trademark (and well-placed) cynicism and poignancy to the stage. It was also intriguing in the presentation, aside from the stand-up material itself; at the time Maher had a book out with parodies of 40's and 50's public service posters warning people. These come up several times behind Maher, and they aren't distracting, they help to add to the points in his act. He talks about the War, Bush, sexuality, and what went down with the 2000 election- "I (bleep) my wife" was one of the more memorable bits. I don't remember the special as freshly as I do of Maher's recent I'm Swiss comedy special, but I do remember having as many laughs as with the latest one, maybe more so due to it not being as familiar (Maher had either just started or was going to start his 'Real Time' show, and most of the points made here are new for the time). But as an added bonus if you can get the film on DVD is extra footage of an off-beat, hilarious Q & A with Maher and the audience. Some of it really catches him off guard, which is ironic as he seems to always be on his feet with his attack on stage and on his shows.

He's talking about you!

I'm surprised Bill didn't get sniped at some point considering how actual freedom of speech, in practice, is dwindling. Nevertheless, Bill once again points out how ridiculous and over-simplified politics have become, and not just in America and not just "politicians". Societies all over the world have distorted views on what's best for everybody. And equally important is the fact that I laughed my ass off. My only criticism would be that this is one man's opinion, but that's really more of a warning to viewers than a shot at the performer himself. About 80% valid argument, 20% Bill's inner-monologue. But after all, that's what a comedian does.

Just as a side note: Stand up comedy takes more courage that most people can dream of mustering, but when someone can do it without a hand-mic, that's a true sign of comfort.

crappy politics makes for great comedy

Bill Maher has spent the last decade as the host of "Real Time with Bill Maher", but has also done stand-up comedy. "Bill Maher: Victory Begins at Home" is a recording of a 2003 concert in New York. His material centers mostly on the Iraq War, the 2000 election, and the problem with religion. He includes what he recommends as wartime posters for the 21st century.

I don't always agree with everything that Maher says. On the subject of religion it would be better if he was equally tough on all religions. Nonetheless I like what he has to say about the screwed up aspects of US society. One might call Maher a less forceful version of George Carlin: an avowed atheist who pontificates on how f**ked up everything is.

I should note that since this is a decade old, some of the topics have become obsolete. I'll be eager to start watching "Real Time" once it starts up again.
