Each episode of this live television series begins with Dennis Miller doing a monologue on a particular topic, ranging from either world events to everyday problems. He then chats the topic up with the episode's special guest and sometimes takes calls from the people at home. And when the episode ends, Dennis finishes off with a news segment not all to different from his days as the anchor on Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update. The Intro music is "everybody wants to rule the world" from the band Tears for fears and the band near the end when the news segment (aka the big screen) begins the song is called "civilized" by Rollins Band
First HBO Special. Solid 55 minutes of his insightful and satiric comic brilliance recorded live in Washington, D.C. Free from the bounds of network TV, Miller aims his uncensored barbs at some suspecting and unsuspecting subjects, including TV commercials, convenience stores, Ronald Reagan, elderly drivers, Larry Storch, the National Enquirer, and many others.
Second HBO Special. Dennis Miller does a standup routine in Tempe, AZ which is filmed entirely in black and white.
Third HBO Special. Clever...Controversial...Constitutional. Filmed prior to the start of Dennis Miller Live series.
Fourth HBO Special. The closing event at the second annual U.S. Comedy Arts Festival, this performance by former Saturday Night Live Weekend Update anchor Dennis Miller was captured live at the Wheeler Opera House in Aspen, Colorado.
Fifth HBO Special. The acid-tongued comic guides a tour of the century's highlights and low lifes, including rants on technology, Hitler, the Cold War and the future of the planet. Norm Macdonald also appears to offer his skewed look at each era.
Sixth HBO Special. Notoriously savage funnyman Dennis Miller makes his stand-up debut on DVD with THE RAW FEED. In his distinctly scathing and vulgar language, Miller unleashes another relentless assault against celebrities, politicians, and anyone else unfortunate enough to aggravate the testy comic. One of the main topics of discussion this time around is the Middle East, which gives Miller a wealth of material with which to drop his verbal bombs.
Seventh HBO Special. He's made a career exposing artifice, excess and pretense. So what's Dennis Miller doing cozying up with a bunch of high rollers and showgirls in Sin City? He's headlining his all-new seventh HBO stand-up special. Live from Caesar's palace, Miller tackles such hot topics as gay marriage, the environment, global warming, Hillary Clinton's presidential changes in 2008, bad comb-overs and more.
Eighth HBO Special Comedian Dennis Miller returns to HBO with his eighth stand-up special Dennis Miller: The Big Speech. Miller takes to the podium with thoughts on the 2010 midterm elections, global warming, dinner with Frank Sinatra, “Obamacare,” Nancy Pelosi, and more.
