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

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.

Dennis Miller is unabashedly right-wing. His humor also leans towards the intellectual. So he's not for everyone. There's some great material in this show... but a little too much political rant for my taste. If you're well informed and lean to the right, you should enjoy "Raw Feed." Otherwise, you'll probably find it hit-and-miss.

I have always enjoyed Miller and his intellectual slant on todays crazy world. I analyzing the political quire mire Miller stirs the mud in an intellectual fashion. You better know your history because when he tears into one of his minutes long diatribe you better listen or miss the pouch line. Keep them coming coo-coo.

Sharp, opinionated, If you enjoy clever phrasing and to the point political commentary, this is your man. He is the only comic that hits all the right notes for nonreligious conservative moderates that believe the United States needs to kick ass and take names. Older, dated material, but if you were around in 2003 and watched the news, you will be able to enjoy Mr. Miller.

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.

If you cannot stand someone who disagrees with you, don't get it (because you don't get it). This is brilliant, if you only like things that pad your bias, then go get a mirror and a microphone and entertain yourself. I think its incredibly funny and will likely only offend those who cannot handle someone who looks beyond wings (which are for birds). Thinking is a *lil* different than leaning "right".

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.

Admit it, he lives on for two reasons, his past good material several decades ago and those who love a far right winger whose an outright unapologetic bigot.

Miller was at his best in small doses on SNL. Once he got his own show or you got exposed to him at length, like when he was a football commentator, he came across as pompous, trying too hard to convince you he was smart as opposed to actually being smart. I guess obscure references confuse some people who think winning Trivial Pursuit makes you a genius.

His racism first came out with his fanatic obsession with OJ Simpson. Then 9-11 brought out his hatred for Muslims and Arabs. With that's come open hatred for Latinos, immigrants of all kinds, American Indians. At this point, who doesn't he hate? Just people who think exactly like him. He's Rush Limbaugh with a bigger vocabulary.

And you see it in his "comedy" including this one. Mostly not much laughing at his jokes, either in the audience or at home. Just people convincing themselves he's clever.

A good comparison might be Bill Maher. I disagree with at least half of what Maher says. So does much of the rest of his audience. But he is funny.

No so Miller. If you want bigotry justified by attempts at being witty, you'll like him. If you can convince yourself his bigotry is somehow not bigotry, or overlook it, you might still like him.

But not even many of his current fans like this one, judging by the other reviews.
