Don't miss more rants.
(P) and ©1998 Dennis Miller, Bantam Doubleday Dell Audio Publishing, A Division of Random House Inc.
Special thanks to Sasha, Stacy and Stef for sharing the Audible experience with me and being the best of company during my recovery.
One of the high points in comedy in the mid to late nineties was the rants delivered by Dennis Miller on far ranging subjects. Though both the material and the delivery were polished, the ideas behind them seemed like the type of thing that could occur spontaneously between colleagues, siblings, or couples who've been together for awhile. Even though it was apparent even twenty years ago that his politics leaned to the right he wasn't the reactionary he became after the beginning of the Iraq War. Highly literate and intelligent this is an excellent work of comedy by a man who was once extremely funny.
I enjoy Dennis Miller's humor, both his very old SNL stuff and some of his more recent material.
However, "Ranting Again" is dull and trite. Plus, it's abridged.
It wasn't horrible--but then I really like Dennis Miller. Not even recommended for fans.
He may call them rants, but they are just basic truisms. Miller is always on the mark with comments on things that affect our every day lives. He speaks from the heart, but uses his head. With tongue in cheek he finds a way to say exactly what you've been thinking. Quite often I have to "go back and listen to that again." Listen to this, then listen again and believe it.
Bitter, angry, arrogant, sarcastic, intolerant of stupidity.... I LOVE IT!!!! Absolutely, my favorite comedian / writer / social commentator. The infrequent obscenity is used as an emphatic particle, and NOT the punch line as is the case in low-brow comedy. Give Miller a shot! You'll love him!
