Storyline

A weekly talk/comedy show hosted by Dennis Miller. Each show starts off with a topical monologue typical of evening talk shows. After this, Dennis goes into "The Rant" in which he talks about some subject that bothers him, starting calmly but gradually building into a frothing, expletive-laden fenzy, then ending with "that's just my opinion, I could be wrong." He chats with a guest for a few minutes, then finishes with a news segment similar to his "Weekend Update" role on Saturday Night Live. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Dennis Miller is the most brilliant comedian who has ever lived.
16 July 2001 | by (El Paso Tx) – See all my reviews

For those of you who have never had the pleasure of witnessing the 30 minute phenomenon that is DENNIS MILLER LIVE I frankly feel sorry for you, because you are missing out on such an amazing show. Dennis Miller has done for talk shows what is long overdue. He has given a completley different feel to the ever growing stale talk show. Dennis Miller and his staff have found a way to do what every other talk show has not yet done,cut through all the sugarcoating and started to tell it like it is.Not only does Mr. Miller beautifully mesh brilliant writting with a unrestricted(we owe ya one there HBO)but tastefull dialogue with topics that are actually interesting and not superficial like we see on so many other shows. I cant for the life of me figure out why he has not won every award for writting there is. While Dennis Miller Live is not lacking in humor,taste or just plain old fashion fun I do have a couple of complaints. For starters its only 30 minutes long. There has not been a time when I have not been sad to see the show end. If it were up to me it would be a minimum of 60 minutes. My second complaint is that they have not yet devoted a channel for Dennis Miller. Im talking 24/7 of all Dennis all the time. Trust me on this. Its a good idea. For closers,, if you do not have HBO I suggest you get it and if for no other reason get it for Dennis Miller Live, but if you can't go to your nearest bookstore and pick up his books. He has three of them.1) I rant therefore I am 2)The rants and last 3)Still ranting. These books contain the opening monologue wich in my opinion are the best part. Do your self a favor if you havent already and start exposing yourself to Dennis Miller Live. You wont be disappointed. Of course thats just my opinion and trust me Im not wrong.
