Review

Dennis Miller: The HBO Specials may very well end up being the comedy DVD release of 2009. -- IGN Digigods

When he was on his game, he was the baddest and brightest stand-up comedian in the country. For those of us who have pined many moons, equal parts impatient and incredulous, for his inexplicably unreleased HBO comedy specials from the 90s; it's time to celebrate an overdue victory. -- Sean Murphy, PopMatters

Without fail, Dennis Miller is the defacto leader of the HBO comedy specials. All fans should own this set! -- Nick Nicholson, Ft Bend Star

Hey Chi-Chi - it's all the HBO Specials, babe..... April 27 2009
By T. Scarillo - Published on Amazon.com
This is a very good value for the money - Dennis Miller's seven (7) HBO Specials on three DVD's. Some of these have never been on DVD before, and it's pretty convenient to have them all in one package.

I'm giving it five stars, mainly for value and for the inclusion of the two key specials: Mr. Miller Goes to Washington (1988), which is the very same show that (more or less, with a couple of edits) was released as the classic "Off-White Album" on Warner Bros. Records - this LP was a staple of my college years. The other absolute gem here is "The Millennium Special", which I think was up for an Emmy or two. It's one of the greatest comedy specials you'll ever see - consistently firing on all cylinders, hitting both highbrow historical references and some pretty lowbrow laughs (with Norm McDonald, who is a riot with his `guest' appearances throughout). I taped this off HBO and must've watched it around 12 or 15 times over the years, and always wondered why it wasn't out on DVD. The other specials included are "Black and White" (1990), "Live From Washington DC" (1994), "Citizen Arcane" (1996), "The Raw Feed" (2003) and "All In" (2006). All specials are basically 45 min-to-one-hour in running length, ranging from very good to just ok - the two recent ones are just ok; some good gags but I'm of the opinion that Miller was a lot funnier before he decided he was a Republican, post-9/11. He used to be a pretty acerbic equal-opportunity offender, leaning somewhat left, but in "Raw Feed" and "All In" he pretty much comes off as a hard-core Bush Republican: for better or worse, depending on your political leanings, it's preserved here for posterity.

The picture and sound on all these are excellent - very sharp, better than other video'd standup concerts I've seen from the same era. So despite any misgivings that some might have about his metamorphosis to the right, as of late, it's still a very worthwhile collection to have if you like(d) him and/or collect standup on DVD. If you get this, you can skip buying the few specials that were already on DVD, and you'll have everything in one package. Ok, Baboo? That's just my opinion, I could be wrong.......

GUS Thought He Saw A WoodChuck ! ! ! ! ! Feb. 28 2009
By Mark Hunt - Published on Amazon.com
It is about time!!! My VHS copies of these specials are about to wear out. Every single one is smart, funny, and full of the most obscure references you will ever find. With DVDs of most of all the SNL Alum being released all the time, it was about time we Dennis Miller fans get some love too. Can a Special Edition Director's Cut of BORDELLO OF BLOOD be too far behind???

Comedy for thinkers Sept. 13 2009

This is a good comedy...it is great to see Dennis Miller's progression from the beginning to now. Be warned though, sometimes Dennis makes a series of intellectual connects that only the most mentally adept can follow...he is one of the few comedians who does not depend exclusively on bathroom humor.

It's Miller Time July 1 2009
By James Chamberlin - Published on Amazon.com
Dennis Miller is an entirely different comedian from what I was used to when I began watching his HBO series on a regular basis. I loved his intelligent rants. I absolutely loved his material and his series.

Having the series and the specials on home video was always a goal of mine. I never recorded any of it on VHS, so thankfully someone at HBO used his head and released these on DVD. They did a good job with it.

Now, if only they could bring the series to DVD. ;) I know his topical humor doesn't resonate quite so much today, but things haven't changed THAT much in the world since Miller went off air.
