Dennis Miller: The Raw Feed (2003)

This is the second Dennis Miller HBO stand up routine I've watched in recent months and I had exactly the same reaction as I did to the first -

I watched Dennis Miller's All In...[and] found it rayther flat. Miller is a very smart guy and a very funny one, but you have to work hard to keep up with him and it seemed as if his Las Vegas audience couldn't quite do it. This, in turn, seemed to throw Miller off a bit, as he often looked slightly flustered and forced. Too bad.

To lose one audience, Mr. Miller, may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose two looks like carelessness.

I just can't help thinking that an hour monologue in front of a large crowd is not Miller's strongest milieu.

Incidentally, I've got both Denis Leary and Bob Newhart floating in the ol' queue, so don't think I'm not covering a fair portion of the stand-up waterfront here.
