Black and White, for me, is on the short list of all-time post Lenny Bruce stand up concert recordings: it is an absolute tour de force and easily justifies the purchase of this entire set. A few highlights, taken at random: 'I view the reunification of Germany in much the same way I view a possible Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis reconciliation: I haven t really enjoyed any of their previous work and I m not sure I need to see the new sh*t right now' ;' (TV preachers) say they don t favor any particular denomination...but I think we've all seen their eyes light up at tens and twenties.'
Miller's HBO feature for the end of the century, 1999's The Millennium Special. is a terrific idea that is pulled off with aplomb. Miller focuses on the 1900s and breaks the century into 20-odd year chunks. He does the news (relaying the popular stories of the times with his trademark Weekend Update shtick): it is clever and funny.
Dennis Miller still looms large as one of the five best stand-up comedians of the past 20 years. This egregiously overdue purging of the HBO vaults should come as a welcome relief to fans who remember watching these specials in real time. --Sean Murphy, PopMatters
Dennis Miller: The HBO Specials may very well end up being the comedy DVD release of 2009. Known more for being politically outspoken since 9/11, Miller nonetheless remains one of the wryest talents in American comedy. His gift for turning a phrase and concocting the most mind-boggling pop culture references is unmatched -- it's a style of comedy that remains uniquely his own. This extraordinary three-disc compilation includes nearly twenty years of Miller, an unmatched look at the evolution of his comedy as superimposed on a full generation of current events. It's enthralling, enlightening, challenging... and best of all, funny. Forget about politics -- this guy is as great as virtual friends can be. HBO Comedy specials from 1988, 1990, 1994, 1996, 1999, 2003 and 2006 are included, and there's not a bad note in any of them. That's how you define a legend. --IGN Digigods
I'd liked what I'd seen of Dennis Miller on TV (O'Reilly show). HOWEVER, this was horrid! The language was unbelievable (glad I've never paid to see him in person). Read morePublished 6 months ago by Dorothy A. Schulz

I do like Dennis Miller. He does have a sharp wit. Most of the material was great, some not as good, but overall, it was good. As always I get the best service through Amazon.Published on June 5, 2013 by blondie

All of his quality work in one place. I thought some of the early footage was a bit "grainy" of course I'm compairing it to the new clear HD. Read morePublished on August 3, 2012 by Travis L.
Like other topical humorists, some of the jokes need to be remembered in the context of the time. But being less generic makes the humor proportionally funnier. Read morePublished on March 11, 2012 by Kindle Customer
