Emmy Award winning comedian and actor, Miller got his start in comedy after college, and got his big break when he was discovered by Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels at a Los Angeles comedy club doing a standup routine. He spent six successful seasons on SNL as the “Weekend Update” anchor before he was “outta there” to pursue other projects. He has his own show Dennis Miller Live (1994– ) on HBO, for which he has won two Emmys. He has also appeared in feature films such as Disclosure (1994) and The Net (1995). He seems to have found a niche on television doing alternative play-by-play commentary for Monday Night football (2000– ).
