Once again there's good news for those of us who rage at the evening news, shake our heads at Washington's business-as-usual, or watch as politicians carom helplessly between political crises and sex scandals: Dennis Miller is back performing his fourth installment of hilarious observations, I Rant, Therefore I Am. Dennis Miller first gained national acclaim as the wise-guy anchor of "Weekend Update" on Saturday Night Live. When HBO premiered his weekly talk show in April 1994, both critics and fans enthusiastically agreed: Dennis Miller Live was the most refreshing talk show on television.
The accolades have continued to pour in. In 1999 Ranting Again won the Audie Award for Humor and in 1997 The Rants was nominated for the "Best Spoken Word" Grammy Award in addition to being voted a USA Today Best Bet. When he takes the stage, the audience demands, "The rants, the rants, the rants," and once again, Dennis Miller delivers the goods. Fans of his smart, quirky, irreverent sense of humor are in for another treat - this set of rants is even funnier than the last three rounds.
If this audiobook were shampoo, "repeat" would be necessary. Dennis Miller - the only Saturday Night Live Weekend Update anchor as far as I am concerned - is at his prime in his latest collection of rants. But I was laughing so hard during my first listen that I had to repeat to get those parts I missed. My favorite bits include: "Talk-Shows" (They answer the burning question: what do people you see being arrested on Cops do during the day?); "Pets" (If you have more than 20 cats in your house, remember that each and every one of them has nine lives and you have none.); and "Buying a Home" (Charming means small. Cute means small. Quaint means old and small. Airy, spacious, and big means small.) Of course, that's just my opinion, I could be wrong. (Teresa C.)
