Five-time Emmy Award winner and crowd favorite Dennis Miller returns to The Orleans Showroom August 8 and 9.
Celebrated as a witty comedian with an entertaining and intriguing stand-up routine, Miller keeps audiences laughing with his irreverent observations. A favorite of the public and critics alike, The New York Times said, “Mr. Miller is exquisitely attuned to contemporary foibles … his material can be scathing, his delivery low-key … Mr. Miller reaches a bit farther than most comedians for the scorching comment … this smart aleck has an uncommonly sharp eye.”
Called “one of the premiere comedy talents in America today,” Miller emerged on the national scene during the 1980s as the “Weekend Update” correspondent on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” After leaving SNL in 1991, Miller moved to HBO, where he hosted the critically acclaimed talk show “Dennis Miller Live” for nine seasons. Miller is a regular on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” and “The O’Reilly Factor.” He was also host and executive producer of CNBC’s “Dennis Miller,” which featured conversation, opinion and humor.
In a career that has spanned far beyond showrooms and interview sets, Miller has also made a name for himself as a film actor and author. Notable motion picture credits include such mid-‘90s favorites as “Disclosure,” “The Net” and “Murder at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.” Miller’s “rant” books, including “I Rant Therefore I Am,” “Ranting Again” and “The Rants” have all been on The New York Times best-sellers list.
Miller garnered three Writer’s Guild of America Awards, as well as an additional WGA Award for his 1997 HBO special, “Dennis Miller: Citizen Arcane.” In addition, he wrote and starred in the Emmy-nominated cable comedy special “Raw Feed.”
