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!

I have been a fan of Bill for a few months now, and after watching his wonderful documentary Religulous I decided to check out his 2005 stand up show "I'm Swiss" which I also enjoyed very much.

If you have seen Religulous or any of Bills other work then you will know exactly what to expect. If not then prepare for his harsh and unsympathetic views on the Bush administration, religion, homophobia, republicans, drug use, rap music and even the state of American food industry which he decrees with a great passion and energy. Just like with Religulous the easily offended should stay as far away from Bill as they can for he takes no prisoners, and entertains immensely while doing so. He shows that he is a great comedian who is intelligent and not afraid to speak his mind while also being hilarious at the same time.

Bill himself is a comedian who you will ether think of as a straight talking beacon of sense in this troubled world, or an arrogant one sided man whose controversial views should be kept to himself. You can probably tell already that I am of the first group, and those who are in the latter will get nothing from this DVD so may as well skip it all together while those who have never seen him before should give him a try at the current low price. Think of him a little as an American Frankie Boyle but with a lot more substance if that helps.

Extras on the DVD include a short but hilarious Q&A session with members of the audience ask questions ranging from what Bill one thing he hates most about religion to what he thinks of a man called Barack Obama. The second extra is a very slightly extended look in the Bill arriving at the theatre and the more wonderful reactions from the audience as they encounter the horrible protester.

"I'm Swiss" Is an intelligent and very entertaining piece of work. It may be a little dated political, but the rest of what he states is still rings true even today, which in many ways is quite scary.

One of the most under-rated stand up comics, from 2005, this is Bill Maher, post George W. Bush's "re-election" the year before. He sets his sights on Bush & the religious right and does not miss the target. There are those who claim that Bill Maher hates America but as he says, "I don't hate America...I'm embarrassed for America". Hopefully we get a region 2 release of his latest DVD, "But I'm Not Wrong".But I'm Not Wrong [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

the reason i have given an average review is cos it took a month to arrive (im in scotland) but the show itself is very good in parts but he's an american comedian so expect some references to american politics which you may not get.
