Smart aleck Dennis Miller pencils in two April dates in Las Vegas


What a tart retort. Stand-up comedian and political commentator Dennis Miller returns to Las Vegas in April with two nights at the 850-seat Orleans Showroom.
Miller only makes a handful of appearances every year, bringing his obscure observations, rants and comic verbal dexterity.

He’s probably best remembered for his debut on the national scene as the anchor for “Weekend Update” on “Saturday Night Live,” a role he took on in 1985. He left the late-night comedy show in 1991 and headed over to HBO to launch his own talk show “Dennis Miller Live” for nine seasons.

The regular on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” and “The O’Reilly Factor” also spent two seasons as a color commentator on “Monday Night Football,” a gig that spawned Brittanica to create its own off-shoot explaining Miller’s esoteric references.


Now Miller has his own nationally syndicated radio show, “The Dennis Miller Show,” airing weekdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. EDT. Every Friday, fans can call in during “Dennis Ex Machina” to ask questions on any topic.

Tickets for the April 17-18 shows start at $54.95.

Tickets: Orleans, (702) 284-7777
