Bill Maher: The Decider (2007)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Bill Maher takes his political satire to Boston's Berklee Performance Center for this hour-long special, which originally aired on HBO. If you're a fan of Maher then you're going to know his type of humor and most of it is aimed at politics. There's no question that the majority of jokes here are aimed at George Bush and it leads to some terrific jokes. A great many jokes go over the countless blunders that Bush has suffered and Maher goes and attacks pretty much every one of them. He talks about the issues in Iraq, the problems in New Orleans and he goes into details about some of the possible people to replace him. The majority of the political jokes are extremely funny as Maher takes that politically incorrect nature and attacks on all fronts. The jokes are usually very fast, clever and most important is that they're simply very funny. However, the best jokes come from when Maher gets away from the political chat and just attacks random things. This includes a hilarious bit dealing with beautiful teachers sleeping with their young students. This entire sequence is just priceless and shows Maher at his very best, which leads into another terrific bit questioning how bad what Michael Jackson was doing to kids really was. Fans of Maher should really enjoy this show and even if you don't hate Bush it still comes across very funny.
