I've had the chance to see Maher perform stand up a couple different times and have watched his You Tube channel. He is definitely a rising star! He has a unique and rare way of making making everyday life seem hilarious. He doesn't need to resort to innuendo and vulgarity to be funny. He's truly original and very talented. I really feel that of all the comics I've seen, this is the guy I'll brag to my friends that I was watching long before the big time!
