Been listening to podcasts from iTunes of his HBO show, Real Time. After all these years, he still makes me laugh, probably because I agree with him 90% of the time. But he can be a real prick when he turns deathly serious by cocking his head and pursing his lips as he spouts an opinion that's not open to discussion. Guess it shouldn't surprise me. You gotta have a huge ego to be a performer of his stature.
