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 a...
