Emmy-award-winning comedian Dennis Miller is the host of CNBC's Dennis Miller, a topical interview talk show. He also serves as executive producer of the program, which is produced by NBC Studios. It has been said that Dennis Miller is "One of the premiere comedy talents in America today." While others are blunt when assessing his comedic stature, Mr. Miller himself makes a virtue of understatement. But there is nothing low-key about his career.
Dennis Miller is a five-time Emmy-award winner for his critically acclaimed half-hour live talk show Dennis Miller Live, which ended its nine-year run after 215 episodes. 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 forth edition of Mr. Miller's popular rants, The Rant Zone, now in paperback. His previous books, I Rant Therefore I Am; Ranting Again and Rants have all been New York Times bestsellers. For two seasons, he 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 the show in 1991. Dennis Miller wrote and starred in the Emmy-nominated cable comedy special, The Raw Feed, his sixth such special. Additionally, he has appeared on many politically oriented television talk shows.
Over the years, Dennis Miller has become both a public and critical favorite. 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..." and 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."
