I agree with some of the other reviews about stale jokes. I love his show, but because of that I've seen every joke he did the first half almost word for word. Second half was much better, not as much Trump stuff. Anybody that goes to see Bill already can't stand Trump so a little bit of that is fine but 45 minutes of the Trump jokes straight from the show was too much. Still glad I saw him.

I am a Bill Maher fan but was not impressed with the show. There was nothing I haven’t heard before. It seemed to me like he was just going through the motions, I guess our city is good for a pay check with putting in the work.

Bill Maher uses this term to describe Trump, but this time I'm using it to describe his performance at the Arlington Theater in Santa Barbara this past Saturday. Everybody walked out of the theater in silence, probably thinking what my friends and I were thinking...what was that all about?? His attitude was terrible. The show lasted a little over an hour. He had a couple of hecklers in the audience, but a good comedian always has some good comebacks. He was so mad, at one point, we thought he was going to walk off the stage. He hurried through his material and it was stale. I'm a liberal and a big fan of Billl Maher but this was a very disappointing performance.

Since I can't find another venue to provide a review of you, I'll use this one. Enjoy your theater district, which apparently doesn't exist in the middle of the country. Perhaps the theaters we have don't constitute a district. I'll chalk your hostility against middle America up to a vacuous belief in identity politics, a bias toward things you don't know, and a prejudice toward people you haven't met. You laugh at fly over country and claim they envy you; have you ever visited any of these towns or met any of these people? I guarantee they don't envy you. You just aren't that great. If you have met any of these people, and still believe any of your commentary about Red States' 'wanting to be you', then you are truly an asshole.

Terrible material without trump to pick on.

Is there anyone who can be funny WITHOUT using the F word? Bill if you have to resort to swearing to get a laugh, you’ve missed the boat. I though you were more intelligent. Boy was I wrong!
