    Well done, Bill. Comedy is not a blood sport. It’s entertainment.

    Really a funny, witty and clever man; even the shameless plug for Adulting is so clever. Way to go Bill Maher for your wit but above all clarity on a super relevant and timely topic for us in society at large.

  3. Curious Jorge says:

    This is exactly why Bill Maher continues to thrive after all these years – humorously putting ridiculous human behavior on blast. This is vital to all of us! Hilarious and bang on!

  4. Craig Russell says:

    As a man suffering from alopecia — which we men usually call “going bald” — I would be DELIGHTED to hear a joke that basically meant, “I think you look like Bruce Willis in Pulp Fiction”

  5. Henry Gendron says:

    This was a damn good episode.lots of challenging opposition and dialog and bill’s right learn to take a joke people.

  6. G E says:

    I like what Ricky Gervais said: “I wouldn’t have made a joke about Jadas hair, I would have made one about her boyfriend”

    • Captain Freedom says:

      @Nic Stone Big Willy Style would have had him murdered for that.

    • Jayjay Mck says:

      @Some Guy lol 😂 Bill needs to sit you down for a one to one ‘explaining jokes to idiots’. No, Ricky actually meant he’ll go even a step further & talk about Jada’s affairs in front of her husband. You think a G.I Jane (badass female) joke is worst & more disrespectful than getting rinsed in front of the world, your husband at the Oscars for your affair with your son’s friend. lol you are not very smart

  7. Jason B says:

    Since when do you sit in the front row, and NOT EXPECT TO BE JOKED ABOUT AT THE OSCARS ? Grow up people .. Chris did his job, over and above the call. Bravo !

  8. BIGBLUE 128 says:

    Everybody would’ve forgot that joke in 15 seconds but will Smith just made everyone remember it forever👋

    • weonlylaughhere says:

      @Rando Yaguchi doesn’t mean it’s not true. Ig someone always gotta shit on the party lol

    • markae0 says:

      close to the Streisand effect

    • Rando Yaguchi says:

      No way, never heard that before

    • Cillian Sands says:

      The true irony of the slap. You’re exactly right: if he would have stayed in his seat and fake laughed no one would have remembered the joke. Now the joke will be immortalized and his wife’s name will be in everyone’s mouth.

    “Kids used to go to college and lose their virginity. Now they go to lose their sense of humor.”

    • Fotios Tsingos says:

      @elvisleeboy but bill Maher and others ALWAYS make it out to be a generational thing. He brought in gen z and millennials over a story about a generation x slapping another generation x.

    • elvisleeboy says:

      @Fotios Tsingos I think it is less about age and more about women and their inability to take a joke or even grasp the basic concept of what a joke is.

    • Fotios Tsingos says:

      53 year old Will Smith slaps 57 year old Chris Rock and 66 year old Bill Maher and many others always make it about the newer generations and their “snowflakeness.” As a man in his 40s, I can honestly tell you people 10, 20, 30 years ago were quicker tempered. What did you say about my girlfriend!? Then a stupid bar fight breaks out. people have such short memories.

  10. G Martinez says:

    We know Bill Maher is a smart man, but that “explanation” was brilliant!

    • Batmanchild says:

      @abu abdo alwaheed well considering he tries to be a comedian as well as a political talk show host, you can’t expect him to also be an expert on the nuances of theology or foreign policy. That’s why he brings guests on the show.

    • abu abdo alwaheed says:

      I like him, he is witty, but little shallow on general knowledge, especially when talking about international affairs and religions he is very shallow but he acts like he knows it all
