Bill Maher is the host of HBO's "Real Time" and hosted Comedy Central's "Politically Incorrect" for ten years. He has created nine stand-up comedy specials, and garnered twenty-six Emmy nominations thus far. In 2008, Maher produced "Religulous," the seventh highest grossing documentary in history.
"Of all the comic commentators, Maher is the gutsiest, boldest, and least inhibited."- "The Washington Post"
Well, the subtitle pretty much says it all, although we've all felt this way at times, no? Following up his best-selling New Rules, Maher, who also narrates, again offers a series of comedic rants on everything from politics (a favorite subject) to same-sex marriage and health care.

"New Rule: Stop putting religious statues on the front lawn. Whoever said there are no virgins left in L.A. has never been to a Mexican neighborhood: there's one in every yard." Maher's passionate rants have never been so addictive as in this inspired performance by the master of late-night talk-show controversy. Taking on everyone from god-fearing Christians to overzealous baseball fans that name their children after ballparks, Maher speaks his mind as only he can. Unabashed and unapologetic, Maher's performance is as entertaining as his HBO program. Luckily, the new rules keep coming and coming and Maher wisely avoids overly long tirades; the laughs are endless in this thought-provoking work. A Blue Rider hardcover. (Nov.)
