Product Description

The "King of Pop References" returns to the site of his first HBO special, George Washington University, for this hilarious live performance, which was filmed in March of 1993. "I vent therefore I am," he announces early in the show, and no person is safe from being skewered by his witty sarcasm not even himself as he proves when ruminating about the demise of his talk show. With President Clinton having just succeeded George Bush in the White House, Miller has a lot to say about our country's politics, and his comments about gun control resonate as profoundly today. Among the other topics hediscusses are terrorists, marriage and fatherhood, political correctness, flying, and the relationship between men and women. If you're concerned about being offended by Dennis Miller's brashness, don't worry; you'll be laughing too hard to notice.

Filmed in 1993, this DVD captures comedian Dennis Miller's stand-up routine from the early 1990s. In his relentlessly cynical way, Miller hones in on such topics as President Clinton, political correctness, flying, Baywatch, and marriage. At the time, Miller had just lost his talk show (a casualty of the early-'90s talk show boom) and he certainly weighs in on that subject as well. Some of his funniest observations, though, are reserved for the topic of women in male locker rooms for postgame commentary. Though his material is topical, it's still fun watching Miller dissect the issues of the day in his sarcastic, sardonic manner. Live and uncensored, he tosses out verbal hand grenades that are guaranteed to offend right- and left-wingers alike. --Jerry Renshaw

Format: VHS Tape
This was an awesome tape. This contained a lot of his most recent funny things and rages about american life and politics. Also includes what could be considered his first ever rant (about James Stockdale) which catapulted him into HBO stardom. It cost a bit but it is highly recommended for DM fans like me.

"Dennis Miller Live from Washington D.C." was the third and unfortunately the least of the acerbic comedian's hour long stand up comedy specials he taped before he began doing his weekly show for HBO. In the topical (both political and social) commentary that predominates, you can see him laying the foundations for what would be a successful ten seasons as late night's most adventuresome talk show host.
Unfortunately, the material is just not as strong as on the first two specials. A lot of the topical stuff is of course dated (the show was taped in early 1993, but the even older material on the earlier shows (1990 and 1987) are just plain funnier. Also, it must be noted that there are NO worthwhile extras on this DVD, despite its relatively high cost. Since all three of Dennis's HBO specials coauld easily fit on one DVD, this one feels a bit like a cheat. Don't get me wrong, I love Dennis Miller, I just don't love this DVD.

Right before he changed, stylistically (not politically). The first half of this disk is a little bland, for sure, but you can tell that he had been out of the comedy loop for a while. He had a show.
He gets better as the show moves onward.

I recommend this as one of his last greats.
