The sins of Bill Maher's previous life
Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death
Of course, deep down, we love Bill Maher in all his partisan glory. There is almost nothing that could keep us from appreciating him as the genre-defining iconoclast that he is. Almost. One thing that could probably prevent that is this clip from the 1989 B-movie that is simultaneously offensive to feminist academics and pretty much any breathing male. Even with the attempts at self-aware campiness, the film falls somewhere between Schindler's List and a dog turd in terms of comedic value -- with Bill Maher eeking out one cringe-worthy scene after another.
Bill Maher's stand up comedy show begins at 8 p.m. tonight at the Paramount Theater, 1621 Glenarm Place. Tickets start at $55. For more information visit www.paramountdenver.com.
