The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report are the two comedy shows that mostly get the attention when it comes to making fun of politics and/or the news, but Real Time with Bill Maher is better than both of them combined.
Maher is quick, smart and wickedly funny and he’s not afraid to tackle any subject and state this view on it. His “New Rules” closing segment is always a gas and I’ve been known to rip him off and make up some of my own.
His show has been on break since November, so it’s been a long winter for me here in Cincinnati waiting for him to get back at it – and he is this coming Friday night at 11:00 p.m. on HBO.
Below is a YouTube clip of some of the funny and insightful moments from the show. Take a look and see what you’ve been missing.
