EPIX PRESENTS “DENNIS MILLER: AMERICA 180°”

 

 A Political Discourse on the State of the Union – Premieres June 13, at 8PM ET

 

New York, NY MARCH 26, 2014 – Premium entertainment network EPIX announced today that Dennis Miller: America 180°, a comedy special starring Emmy® Award-winning comedian Dennis Miller, will make its World Television Premiere on the network Friday, June 13, 2014 at 8PM ET.  In his first comedy special for EPIX, Miller examines the current state of our Union.  From the antics of those running Washington, to the blunders of President Obama’s healthcare initiative, to our wild efforts to save the planet one light bulb at a time, his take on today’s America is both hysterical and painfully right on target.  Dennis Miller: America 180° was taped at the Barclay Theatre in Irvine, California.

Since 2007, Miller has been heard daily on his Westwood One national radio talk show and is a regular contributor for “The O’Reilly Factor” on the FOX News Channel.  Miller is a five-time Emmy® Award winner for his critically acclaimed half-hour, live talk show “Dennis Miller Live” which ran for nine years.  He garnered three Writer’s Guild of America Awards for the series as well as an additional WGA Award for his special, “Dennis Miller: Citizen Arcane.” He was also the “Weekend Update” correspondent on “Saturday Night Live” for six years.

Dennis Miller: America 180° joins EPIX’s all-star roster of stand-up specials.  Previous featured headliners include: Patton Oswalt, Jenny McCarthy, Lewis Black, Louis C. K., Jim Norton, Tom Papa, Jim Jefferies, Sherri Shepherd, Jim Breuer and Eddie Izzard.  EPIX’s commitment to the craft of comedy also includes the EPIX Original Documentary “The Improv: 50 Years Behind the Brick Wall,” a revealing special that brings together the biggest names in comedy to tell the inside story of America’s first comedy club.

 Dennis Miller: America 180° an EPIX Original Comedy Event is produced by New Wave Entertainment and directed by Jay Chapman.  Brian Volk-Weiss, Dennis Miller, Marc Gurvitz and Alex Murray are the executive producers.  Ross Bernard is the executive-in-charge of Production for EPIX.
