Into Bill Maher’s Lair

April 23rd, 2012

I recently appeared on Bill Maher’s HBO Show, which feels great — if  you look like Johnny Depp or Che Guevara.   The studio audience finds even Bill Maher too conservative!   Here’s a link to part of the show.

Some inside dope:  the show is broadcast in the same studio as The Price is Right, and so the  the game show logo shows up on every backstage door.  It would be fascinating to do a surprise switch.  Bill would host his edgy show before the apple-cheeked Price is Right crowd, and Drew Carey would give away refrigerators to the wild-eyed Maher fans looking for a protest march.

No profanity laced invective from me, but I was hoping to hear more from Thomas Frank. Saw him on C-SPAN speaking masterfully on US economic history. I don’t know much about you other than being left with no desire to be subjected to you in the future.

It’s “Thruster”, LanceThruster

That is all.

I came back to at least compliment you on what I saw of you on the “Overtime” portion of the show, only to see my original post scrubbed. Why such a thin skin?
