I can't understand this man.

Is it "his thing" to be always disagreeable?

Am I missing something? I don't watch/listen to him every day.

Seriously. Help me.

He was a stand up comedian at one point, so I think it is in him to play a disagreeable character. Most of his recent work is agitation based, so I normally don't watch.

Edit - He used to have a lot of musicians on his show as a part of a panel, my wife used to tune in for that.

I can take him or leave him. Somethings I agree with them then he goes way off the reservation, to put ti mildly.

Some of his scientific ideas are suspect. He likes to blame most health problems are bad food, because corporations.

I don't mind him, I usually watch his show every week, but it's important to note it's not a News Show, it's an Entertainment show.

This weeks episode should be interesting because he has Tammy Lahren on it (basically Ann Coulter/Kellyanne Conway, but not smart and kinda annoying tbh).

He will have folks who don't agree with him on. Sorry to say--but he's about the only replacement for Buckley's FIRING LINE.

I saw him in Religulous, and that was enough exposure for me. Sure, he can be amusing, but he doesn't see his own nonsense and faulty reasoning while he has a great time poking fun at that of others.

Bill Maher seemed to get a lot of popularity because of who he was against, rather than how entertaining he was. Does anybody here remember Mort Sahl?
