5.0 star rating Linda Brown from Silverton, Oregon


I sat near the front of the Mezzanine and had a great view. Not that you really need to see a comedian's performance. Maher came on 15 minutes late which was a problem as the seats are tiny with no leg room. I was squirming by the time he appeared on stage. The first part of the routine was slow and I wondered if he was stoned. However, he found his groove after that. He sent us a volley of Trump jokes and tried to help us empathize with poor Melania who is an immigrant "doing a job no American wants." I loved that he mentioned that hunters are total assholes. I know he is a vegetarian. Not sure how receptive Portland is to that, though, as the area is surrounded by hunting lands. I noted a few people sitting near me did not clap or holler when he mocked Christianity. I also noted that there was a bit of discomfiture when he mocked people who support Muslims and the MeToo Movement. The latter part of the show, Bill focused on jokes about penises and vaginas. Overall, I give show an A.

Bill was smokin' hot, xxx rated, he can turn the naughtiest subject into a biting but hysterical wit. He gives hope that there is still intelligent life on earth. The historic Florida Theatre is a beautiful and very well run venue, great sound and acoustics.

Once again, Bill Maher delivered. He poured his heart into it and it showed. He helps us get out of bed in the morning to be able deal with the son of an orangutan who embarrasses us daily. I cannot wait to see him again!

Vintage Maher, funny, stinging political and social commentary delivered with his unique sense of humor. First time we've seen him, already looking to see when he will performing in Cent. FL. again.

Great show. I am so glad I was able to see him in person. But, wow, the tickets were costly and the show was so short. I thought two hours would have been good... less than an hour and a half though.... so a little disappointed by that.

3.0 star rating Nick and Leah from Victoria, British Columbia


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.
