Product Description

Dennis Miller: The Raw Feed (DVD)

Amazon.com

Dennis Miller rolls out a highly polished new act in this HBO special, taped before a live Chicago audience on March 1, 2003. While Miller's social commentary remains rigorously middlebrow, it's his typically loquacious, often elegant, occasionally anachronistic (one wonders what the young, Windy City audience makes of Miller's coiffure reference to "the harmonica player from the J. Geils Band") delivery that makes The Raw Feed worth visiting. Surreal esoterica abounds from the moment the comedian takes the stage with references to the "sequin mines of L.A.," the India-Pakistan conflict as understood through the filter of Jonny Quest, the length of purchase receipts from Circuit City, and suck-up Saudi royalty described as "the Eddie Haskells of the Middle East." The occasional killer line emerges, including Miller's prescription for peace in Israel (give Palestinians the casinos) and a hard truth about nature: "It's like Nick Nolte with a clogged Eustachian tube." --Tom Keogh

3.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre Miller material April 8, 2008
Format:DVD
Even before his veer to the political right, I was a Dennis Miller fan. I watched him all the time on SNL when he was a Reagan hater and saw his live show in college while he was firmly planted left of center. It is refreshing to see an entertainer of any sort that is willing to take up traditionally conservative causes and points of view, and, in Dennis's case, make them funny.

Raw Feed, though, is weak by Miller standards. Recorded on the eve -- almost literally -- of the Iraq war, Dennis's takes and predictions, five years later, seem...well...uninformed. Only a handful of jokes got a laugh of me. The rest ranged from cute to painfully "esoteric" (as he would put it.)

If you're a liberal, and you cannot laugh at the causes you hold most dear, don't watch Raw Feed. You'll just be upset. For the rest of you, especially Miller fans, it's worth a rental but don't buy it. You'll probably not watch it a second time.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Entertainer With A Brain September 16, 2003
Format:DVD
Wow. Until his recent comments about the various states of the world at large on Jay Leno, the news and print, I knew him only from Saturday Night Live and Joe Dirt (I realize it's an abomination of a movie but it does have Christopher Walken). Upon reading about his various quips relating to the world today and various entertainers and celebrities constant whining, I knew I had to see his act.
Dennis Miller is a rare breed of entertainer. He talks to you, not at you. He doesn't espouse slogans and chants, he speaks with clarity, reason and incredible wit. Even when he's not particularly funny, he speaks with the mind of someone who; at the very least, is incredibly observant. He completely brushes aside the agendas of the whiny left and the argumentative right and breaks it all down the middle with common sense. He leans in neither direction but instead steps back and views the world from an objective stand point and even when you disagree with him, you still hang on every word because he speaks like someone who thinks constructively and free of the sheepishness of a good number of people. And, to top it all off, he is very funny.
What can I say... I'm sold.

4.0 out of 5 stars Irreverent And Intelligent May 20, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Dennis Miller tilts to the right...so what? He's funny, he's smart, and he's unconventional. He is also unafraid to get into uncomfortable areas where most comedians fear to tread due to guaranteed politically-correct criticism. I find it interesting that the people who give this a one star review claim it's because Miller is a shill for the far right. Actually, he's not. He is essentially a libertarian (look at what he says about gay rights for a clear illustration of this) who believes in the defense of the United States, and doesn't mind stepping on toes in the process of defending his beliefs. I am sure the people who gave this one star think that Al Franken (Miller's personal friend, but politically his nemesis) is an utterly brilliant, totally unbiased comedian of great depth and insight. Please. I happen to think that Franken is also a very funny guy, and has as much right to espouse his own beliefs as Dennis Miller. The point is this: Dennis Miller has the right to his own viewpoints, too.

If you are totally close-minded to all but the far left wing, this DVD will undoubtedly offend you. If, on the other hand, you think it is refreshing to see a comedian take a logical (if politically incorrect) stand in the post-9/11 world (with bonus points for a pointedly hilarious anti-French monologue), this is the best DVD money can buy. I would give it five stars were it not for the sometimes excessive language that renders it unsuitable for all audiences.

Bravo, Dennis!

4.0 out of 5 stars A comedian that THINKS, and gets you thinking also April 25, 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I just have to laugh derisively at all of the one-star reviewers here. The "logic" of all of those reviews goes like this: "I don't agree with his politics, so he's not funny." Suddenly, as soon as Miller, a comedian of formidable talent, is joking about something that you disagree with, he suddenly becomes a "shill," a "hack," and someone who is less than talented.
You all know darn well that if Miller were cracking jokes for the Democrats and the liberal point of view, you'd be cheering him on like the sign-waving rah-rah crowd at a DNC convention. Don't kid yourselves, and don't take away from Miller's obvious talent.
I don't agree with everything Miller says, either. But the guy is funny. More than that, he is very evidently intelligent, and he is a comedian that makes you think. We need more people like Dennis around. His analysis of current events is razor-sharp as usual, and his witty comments slice through them effortlessly.
There is a sprinkling of profanity (quite a few f-words), but Miller uses these for emphasis, and most of the time, it feels appropriate.
I dock this one star for being somewhat dated already with topical jokes such as the "impending" war on Iraq. But Dennis' humor is nothing if not topical, so this sort of thing is inevitable. Although dated somewhat, his jokes on subjects such as this are still funny.
Here is a guy that, agree with him or not, is probably the most THINKING comedian of our time. And I love him for it.
