WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS
DENNIS MILLER (Judge Whopper) hit the ground running in 1985 when he
was cast on TV's Saturday Night Live. He spent six seasons on the popular show,
most notably as the smirky "Weekend Update" anchor.
The comedian went on to host the syndicated Dennis Miller Show, which was
among the first alternative TV talk shows. Though it only lasted a year, it
paved the way for his far more successful outing, Dennis Miller Live, which
enjoyed a nine-year, 215-episode run on HBO. Miller and his writing staff were
nominated for Emmy(R) Awards five times over the course of the half-hour talk
show's lengthy life.
During the 1990s, Miller also acted in a number of feature films including
Madhouse, Disclosure, The Net, Never Talk to Strangers, Bordello of Blood, and
Murder at 1600, as well as on such TV sitcoms as NewsRadio and The Norm Show.
Miller later spent two seasons as the color commentator for ABC's NFL Monday
Night Football, then went on to host CNBC's hour-long prime time political show
simply titled Dennis Miller.
Over the past 20 years, he also starred in and wrote the HBO specials Mr.
Miller Goes to Washington; Black and White; Live From Washington DC: They Shoot
HBO Specials, Don't They?; State of the Union Undressed; Citizen Arcane; The
Millennium Special; The Raw Feed (2003 Emmy nomination); and All In. Miller also
wrote and appeared in 2007's NFL Network special, The Monday Night Miracle.
In addition, he wrote a best-selling series of "Rant" books for
Doubleday Publishing and, later, Harper-Collins.
Last year, Miller began hosting Westwood One's The Dennis Miller Show, a
daily, three-hour talk show focusing on culture, current events, and politics.
It airs on 138 radio stations across the United States.
Miller also currently hosts NBC's primetime game show Amne$ia.
