Review of "Bill Maher: The Decider, Live!," DVD

Review of

Bill Maher: The Decider, Live!, DVD

Five out of five stars

 The live comedy routine recorded on this disk took place in the last years of the administration of George W. Bush. Yet, many of the jokes could be recycled into more modern performances, all that would be needed would be to change the names of the players. Maher is a master comedian; it starts with great material and he has the timing and delivery honed to perfection.

 Since many of his jokes are at the expense of President Bush, they suffer a little bit of age-related degeneration. It will be helpful if the viewer understands some of the history of the time. Despite the foolishness of politicians, humorous political commentary is quite hard, for you have to be harsh but only to a point. In this HBO Comedy Special, Bill Maher proves once again that he is a master of the craft.
