I bought this after watching and truly enjoying Maher's Religulous, so I had some idea of his humour to start with. He does cover some of the same ground in this performance, since apparently religion is a hobbyhorse of his, but that isn't a bad thing; he has a lot more to say than could be fitted in the other film, and he is extremely funny on the subject. And on the other topics he covers. A cynical, rude and definitively non-pc performer, Maher is at his best when at his most waspish. Some comedians will spit venom and then pull that cheesy Vegas trick of apologising ("hey, I'm just messin' with ya, I love ya really"). Maher prefers just to throw abuse and then cock an eyebrow at you in amusment for not expecting it. He is a little inclined to pursue some ideas too far, until they are not really funny, but that's a rare occurrence. I'd say, if you want very intelligent, rational, logical comedy without fear or favour, go for Maher. If you want gut-busting slapstick, look elsewhere. And if you're religious - just don't go there!
