In this fourth installment of his acclaimed Rants series, bestselling author, Emmy Award-winning talk-show host, and wisecracking analyst for ABC's Monday Night Football Dennis Miller makes hamburger meat out of society's most sacred cows as only he can, with the kinds of allusions that require high SAT scores -- or at least a smart crib sheet. This time around, Miller takes on child stars with rap sheets, women with bigger muscles than his own, herbs you don't smoke, God, and football. As always, nothing is out-of-bounds.
Comedian and TV host Dennis Miller was born in Philadelphia on November 3, 1953 and was educated at Point Park College. While working as a comedian at the Comedy Store, Miller was discovered by Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels. He did the Weekend Update for SNL for six years until he left the set to create The Dennis Miller Show. Unfortunately for Miller, the show did not go over well and was canceled after six months. Miller then went on to HBO, where he created Dennis Miller Live. A collection of his best shows, Dennis Miller: The Rants, was published in 1996.
