Dennis Miller, born on November 3, 1953 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is an American actor, comedian, radio host and political commentator. After graduating from Point Park University in 1976, Miller began pursuing a career as a comedian. He performed regularly at clubs in Los Angeles and New York before catching his big break when Lorne Michaels cast him in Saturday Night Live in 1985. Though he appeared in some skits, Miller's main job was hosting the Weekend Update segment for six years. After leaving Saturday Night Live, Miller hosted two separate talk shows over an eleven-year period before being asked to join the announcing booth for Monday Night Football. Miller lasted only two years before being replaced by John Madden. In the years following the attacks of 9/11, Miller has become an increasingly conservative public personality. He has hosted shows on both CNBC and the Fox News Channel. In 2007, Miller began hosting his own radio show and still regularly performs stand-up comedy in Las Vegas.
