Before Bill Maher was sitting at a desk for HBO‘s hit show Real Time with Bill Maher, he got his start starring in the 1989 B-horror film Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death. The film, written and directed by J.F. Lawton, also stars Shannon Tweed (Playboy, Detroit Rock City) and Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog, Escape From New York City).
These women are serious about their TASTE in men. To avoid a serious avocado shortage, the U.S. government hires feminist anthropology professor Margo Hunt (Shannon Tweed) to find the man-eating Piranha Women tribe who inhabit the avocado jungle of Southern California. Assisted by chauvinist Jim (Bill Maher) and a dimwitted student named Bunny, Hunt must convince the tribe to move to Malibu condos while simultaneously fending off her rival Dr. Kurtz (Adrienne Barbeau). Meanwhile, Bunny’s contemplating joining the Piranha gals…but she must consume Jim first.
