Publisher's Summary

There's good news for those that rage at the  evening news, shake their heads at Washington's  business-as-usual, or watch as politicians carom from social crisis to political crisis to economic crisis: Dennis Miller is back, and he means to shake the nation by its lapels.

Miller respects no boundaries. Whether the subject is dope-addled baseball players who can no longer swing their bats, do-nothing politicians who devote their careers to  creating meaningful sound bites, or the nation's resigned acceptance of violence as a way of American life, these thematically arranged monologues are funny and angry. More significantly, they shatter  the conventions of comedy by simultaneously making  us laugh, think, and seethe.

Don't miss more rants.
(P) and ©1996 Dennis Miller, Bantam Doubleday Dell Audio Publishing, A Division of Random House Inc.

Remember When He Was Really Funny

This was Dennis Miller's first series of rants and now that I've listened to them maybe twenty times over the last twenty years, they're still funny. The author reads his own work naturally, and the entertainment chops he built up through all his years of performing are on display. Miller is intellectually inclined, erudite and his delivery is perfect. For those of you who are familiar only with his post 9/11 right wing screeds against anyone to the left of Joe McCarthy you are in for a pleasant surprise when you hear his balanced, well spoken,fairly mainstream opinions on all manner of cultural and political subjects, it's just over an hour in length and you'll be entertained throughout the entire book.

the rants good but old.

It's really good but dated. Younger listeners will probably miss most of the references. here's my extra word to meet the word requirements for a review.
