Cynical and swiss; the fun qualities of life
5 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bill Maher: I'm Swiss is perhaps the funniest standup special Maher has ever given us. From his entrance, he comes out looking like a soul with a lot on his mind he can't wait to get out there, and once he hits his stride - roughly ten to fifteen minutes in - interrupting him or even pausing the DVD seems like a despicable act. For ninety-nine minutes, Maher goes off on zealous rants, such as 9/11, the Bush administration, gay marriage, the war on drugs, religion, and, one of the best subjects he has ever explored, food and why it is killing us. He talks about how the bloating, belching, and unsettled stomach many people face shouldn't be considered an act of nature but the body's cry for help from all the garbage, chemicals, high-fructose corn syrup, and aspartame we've been ingesting for so many years. Moreover, his commentary on religion and morals and values hits particular highs as he, again, brings up valid points all while making them hilarious and communicable to people of all political positions and classes, so long as they're willing to hear him out. The title of the special is derived from Maher's phrase which he uses to describe the Bush administration, saying he is like Switzerland in the face of chaos; he's Swiss. And in many ways, so am I.

Starring: Bill Maher. Directed by: Michael Drumm.
