Sure thing.

I find him entertaining, but not many other people that I know do. Women in particular tend to dislike him because he makes an offhand sexist comment every now and then.

I used to like his stand up but his last few specials have been weak.
But I still enjoy Real Time.

Funny show but it often gets derailed by bad guests. It just takes one person who won't shut up to ruin everything and Bill isn't very good at reigning people in.

Plus, his audience is terrible.

His stand-up show was shockingly unfunny. When we saw him it was more of him just bantering with himself. I actually enjoyed it for what it was, but my wife (and about half of the audience) was falling asleep. I kinda wondered if the show was just marketed wrong. I'm not sure it was intended to be a "comedy" show. Seemed like it should have just been presented as "An Evening with Bill Maher". That would have brought a different crowd and expectations.

I can't say I'm a fan. I might describe him as smarmy.

I don't know, you'd have to be pretty bitter to find more offensive content than funny content in his average show.

... or you'd have to be one of his targets.

Not a fan. He makes some good points, but he's always a massive douche about everything. Plus, isn't he an anti-vaxxer? :shake:

Neither do I, but the audio is a podcast in iTunes. You get them delivered to your iphone every Monday.
