Dennis Miller Live
"Now, I don't want
to get off on a rant here, but..."
No... of course not!
After all, it's not like Dennis
Miller has ever ranted... It's not as
if Dennis has written three books, one titled "Rants", the other
titled "Ranting Again" and the third called "I Rant,
Therefore I Am" (each of them making the N.Y. Times best
For those not in on the joke,
"ranting" is what Dennis does best. It's his word for the clever,
humorous monologues he likes to deliver, filled with his own brand of wit
& sarcasm and the frequent political jab.
Cocky, irreverent, cynical,
smug, abrasive - a real wise-ass with a blazing wit, Dennis Miller
has made a successful career out of heaping scathing criticism on social
institutions and individuals alike. His brand of humor is not to everyone's
taste, but his fans are legion.
Broadcast on HBO, his half
hour comedy show, "Dennis Miller Live" has won five Emmy awards.
It consists of his monologue ("The Rant"), followed by the week's
guest and a segment where Dennis fields questions from call-in phoners,
and closing with "The Big Screen", featuring Dennis doing
the news his way: providing comic captions to accompany candid photos
of the rich & famous.
Dennis Miller's celebrity
guests on the TV show have included Jim Carrey, Tom Hanks, Sandra
Bullock, George Clooney, Robin Williams, Jerry Seinfeld, Drew
Barrymore, Billy Crystal, Michael Douglas, Charlton Heston,

Be warned that Dennis Miller's
style isn't for everyone. And HBO's lack of censorship means his "Rants"
can turn R-rated in a hurry. So if you're easily offended, "Live"
may not be your cup of tea. But if you're a fan of Dennis and his work,
nothing beats a little Rant... unless it's the the chance to see it delivered
But as Miller would say: "Of
course, that's just my opinion. I could be wrong."
