Dennis Miller has been hailed as one of the premiere comedy talents in America today. The Hollywood Reporter called his most recent special 'an hour of topical, scathing brilliance that helps cement Miller's status as the Lenny Bruce of the new millennium...the most cerebral, astute and clever standup ever to put mouth to microphone.'
He is a five-time Emmy award winner for his critically acclaimed half-hour, live talk show Dennis Miller Live, which had a nine year run on HBO. He was also the host and executive producer of CNBC's Dennis Miller, a topical interview talk show.
For two seasons, Miller called the plays alongside Al Michaels and NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Fouts on ABC's Monday Night Football. He was also the Weekend Update correspondent on Saturday Night Live for six years, before exiting in 1991. He has also been cast in films, usually in dramatic roles, most notably in 1994's Disclosure, 1995's The Net, and 1996's Murder at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
In October 2001, HarperCollins published the fourth edition of Miller's popular rants, The Rant Zone, now out in paperback. Miller's previous books, I Rant Therefore I Am; Ranting Again; and The Rants have all been New York Times best sellers.
Miller continues to appear regularly on many politically oriented television talk shows, as well as on his own current nationally syndicated daily radio talk show.

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
