WORKING

I ran the spotlight for his show Saturday night. Luckily Bill didn’t move around too much on the stage and I was able to enjoy the show. Very funny!

WHAT JUST HAPPENED?

An audience member, sitting near front, decided to opine on Bill's commentary- she stood up and talked. RUDE RUDE RUDE. we didnt come to see her. i thought bill was shocked. Show was great but i think he closed pretty quickly after the excitement of another member of the audience getting up to yell at her.

BILL MAHER VANCOUVER OCT 14, 2017

I watch Bill Maher's weekly TV show so was looking forward to seeing him live. While it was enjoyable, there wasn't much new material. It was also very short - only 1 hour 15 minutes long with no warm up act. The tickets were 110.00 each - plus 20 bucks for parking. Not great value for the money I'm afraid.

BILL MAHER OCT 14TH QE

Disappointing. Many quips we have heard from his television production over recent weeks - very little new - emphasis, fixation on Trump. No substantive Canada content and yet so much on personality contrasts (Trudeau / Trump) and culture he and his writers could have assembled for a Vancouver audience. Still love what he is trying to do to save the world - but he needs to keep each gig fresh and relevant to each audience.

GOOD BUT...

Always wanted to see Bill Maher in person. It was a good show and vintage Maher but I was surprised that he referred to notes on a lectern so much and it was so obvious. Most comedians just talk talk talk by heart. You would think he would do the show enough that he could just do the 90 minutes without notes. I would say his TV show is a cut above his in person performance. I wonder if his show changes much from city to city and when he revises all the material. I was also surprised to seeing only a handful of people wearing, which I was. I guess Covid and it's more transmissible variants have been eradicated from Buffalo.

TIRED MAN AND MATERIAL

I’m a Bill Maher fan and feel he serves an important role in political commentary due to his independent views. This why it was disappointing to see him live 4/22/23 as he was tired and his material was just a rehash of his show. HBO should send a crew with him to write, do makeup, wardrobe and lighting. Bill uses the Real Time music at the end and beginning of the show which reflects poorly on HBO. The only part of the show that had any energy was when he was imitating Trump. Sad!

MEH-COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER.

You can definitely tell the writers strike is still happening. Since I am long time fan and have seen all of his shows, I’ve heard all the material. Like he watched his old monologues and picked jokes from them. Was hoping he’d talk about everything going on since he broke for summer. Instead it was Q-Anon, Hillary, and other old stuff. DO NOT buy those seats at the round tables down in front of the stage! They are about 24” diameter the other 2 people are practically in your lap. We went to concierge and got seats father back despite paying VIP price. Much better!
