Bill Maher: Live From Oklahoma (7/7/18)



Looks like the whole performance, though it's not official from HBO, so I'm not sure how long this will last...

1. Hubby and I had a blast.

The only problems were the seats were small (I am only 5'7" and 130lbs) and it was really warm inside! Also, sometimes the cameraman was right in our line of sight. There people outside with petitions to get medical and recreational marijuana as an amendment (we both signed both)! We had pretty good seats, other than the aforementioned problem. The opening act was a bit stupid, though he got better toward the end.

11. Thanks for weighing in!

They never showed the audience, but I thought of you there! Sounds like it wasn't an ideal venue, with the small seats and all, but from the audience reaction, it sure looked like a success! He was somewhat more graphic than he is on Real Time, but I get the impression that's what his live shows are like. So glad that you had such a great time! He really seemed to have the audience with him, but then not too many Trump supporters would go to see Bill Maher!

I did wonder if there were any disruptors - he can run into that anyplace, remember when they disrupted his HBO show awhile back. And he seems to overlook the bluest states with his live shows - but little does he know the denizens of rural New York State! And he was very funny, I laughed out loud several times, too! Thanks for the first hand report!

25. I was there, too! :D. Didn't witness anything disruptive...

... inside or out. Good show! We really enjoyed seeing him in person. Interesting that they didn't show the audience...

26. Did you sign the petions in the parking lot to legalize pot on a OK consitutional level?

We signed both (medial and recreational). After the show, we went to the Majestic (gay bar) for the first time. Not a bad place, but boy did it remind us how old we are the next day when we tried to function!

28. Never been to the Majestic. That's the one across the street from Mexicali?

Sounds like you had a good time. Maybe TOO good!

Petitions: signed.

27. Thanks for letting us know!

And of course we all envy you! Some shows just don't show the audience, I've noticed that his Real Time show never does either. BtA said that sometimes the cameras blocked their view so maybe they aren't used to televising the shows there? In any case, I agree it was a great show, I actually laughed out loud several times...

My wife and I were nonplussed about all he had to say.

4. I'm glad you got to see it, too! The political jokes were spot on!

I actually laughed out loud several times! I usually post Real Time with Bill Maher, so I wanted to post this too if I could find a reliable video.

5. What I really hope is that all those people who were in the audience will go out and vote in Nov.

It certainly was an enthusiastic audience!

He wasn't subtle, but then Bill Maher never is!

8. You're more than welcome!

I usually post Real Time and when I noticed that everyone was talking about his special (no Real Time this week), I tried to find a reliable video. He really was very funny!

I really enjoyed it. Being in Europe, I don't have HBO over here so really appreciate your sharing it.
Looked like it was hot as Bill's shirt was soaked when he finished.

Cheers!

10. So glad you enjoyed it! I laughed out loud several times so I wanted to share it...

A fellow DUer was in the audience and he said the lights made it a bit warm, so it must have been even warmer for Bill. But he seemed to really enjoy his interaction with the audience - and I agree he was very funny!

12. I've enjoyed Bill Maher

for years. We left the states about 2 weeks ago so I'm having HBO withdrawals now. I have to scrounge around and find Last Week Tonight with Jon Oliver this afternoon! Thanks again. Cheers.

14. I have, too! And we sure can use more of his humor these days!

As for John Oliver, I regularly post his Sunday show as soon as it's available, but it wasn't on this week, as with Bill Maher, he announced last week that he would be off "for a few weeks."

These are the latest ones I posted if you missed them:

18. You are too kind!

Thank you. That's right, Oliver is on break most of July. I saw the previous posts about Gene Editing but missed the other two segments. Thanks so much!
Really appreciate it.

13. I think Bill missed an opportunity

when he was talking about lifetime gigs. He could have mentioned Supreme Court Justices and then segued into the current mess. But I loved it, as I do all his material.

16. That's true - normally he'd address this latest crisis on his weekly show

But he's not coming back till August.

19. I tried to watch it, but soon had to give up,

 

since it sounded as if I was at a 45 rally. Bill's followers reacted just like the morons cheering the inanities of the dotard.

That they are the same as 45's cheerers?

21. The difference is, Bill's job is stand-up comedian

People pay to see him tell jokes and make them laugh. They aren't morons.

Welcome to DU.

24. Tried it again and you're right, it inexplicably cuts off now. *sigh*

I'm sorry. At least it lasted longer than most of these do. I couldn't find the whole show again, but this bit he did about Pence still works:

Bill Maher completely destroys the ‘Pence would be worse’ argument in his new HBO special
