I usually find Bill Maher funny, so I was very happy to get this
DVD in the mail. I used to watch his show "Politically Incorrect" on Comedy
Central, even before it went to ABC. I watch "Real Time" on HBO whenever I can
(I don't get HBO, unfortunately). He is hilarious. I don't always agree
with him, but he always makes me laugh.
This HBO special is very funny. You know it's a good one when
you're laughing so hard that tears are streaming from your eyes. Of
course, I'm sure it does help if you are a Democrat, since most of his targets
are Republicans. I think Bill is more of a libertarian, actually, but his
comedy is what is more important than his politics.
Bill doesn't just talk about politics. He also talks about sex
and other stuff. He can be quite lewd at times, but that doesn't bother
me. If you like Bill or just want a good laugh, you should watch this special,
either on HBO, or on the DVD! It's well worth your time. It's hilarious!
It's available in stores September 14, 2010.

BILL MAHER..."BUT I'M NOT WRONG"
In Stores, Exclusively from HBO Home Entertainment(r)
On September 14, 2010
New York, N.Y., July 6, 2010 - One of the most politically astute
comedians in America today, Bill Maher returned to HBO(r) for his
solo special Bill Maher..."But I'm Not Wrong," now debuting on DVD.

Bill Maher..."But I'm Not Wrong" was taped at the Raleigh Memorial
Auditorium at the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts in
Raleigh, North Carolina. The special features Maher's typically
fearless observations on a wide range of social and political issues
including: whether the "Great Recession" is really over; the fake
patriotism of the right wing; what goes on in the mind of a
Obama needs a posse instead of the Secret Service; and why comedy
definitely didn't die when George W. Bush left office.
A favorite since his first HBO special in 1989, Maher has starred in
eight previous solo specials on the network, including The Decider
Swiss (both nominated for an Emmy(r) in the Outstanding Variety,
Comedy Special category), Victory Begins at Home, Be More Cynical,
Golden Goose Special, Stuff That Struck Me Funny and two One Night
specials. Additionally, he was featured in the HBO specials 30
Over Washington and Comic Relief VI(tm). Real Time with Bill Maher

of Politically Incorrect, which was produced by HBO Downtown
