>>Jimmy: SO STYLISH.>>THANKS. SHE WAS SWEET ENOUGH TO KEEP THIS. >>Jimmy: THAT WASN’T A COINCIDENCE. YES, GET THAT BACK TO ETSY IMMEDIATELY. HOW ARE YOU DOING?>>JIMMY, WHERE’S THE RUSSIAN KID AND THE FRENCH GUY? [ LAUGHTER ]>>Jimmy: HE’S RIGHT IN THE FRONT. A FRENCH YOUNG WOMAN — A RUSSIAN GENTLEMAN –>>YOU GUYS GOING TO DO A LITTLE COLLUDING TONIGHT? [ LAUGHTER ] THIS IS YOUR FIRST TIME ON THE SHOW. >>14 YEARS, JIMMY.>>Jimmy: 16, 16. >>16. SORRY.>>Jimmy: YEAH. YOU CAN’T JUST CUT TWO YEARS OUT. TWO YEARS ARE A LOT OF YEARS.>>YOU LOOK SO SMOOTH OUT THERE, BROTHER, GOOD FOR YOU. >>Jimmy: THANK YOU. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] I HAVE KNOWN YOUR BROTHER JIMMY FOR A WRONG TIME. YOUR BROTHER IS A VERY SUCCESSFUL MANAGER OF COMEDIANS.>>HE TOLD ME YOU AND HE SEND EACH OTHER FROZEN SANDWICHES OR SOMETHING?>>Jimmy: THAT IS TRUE. >>EXPLAIN. I KNOW WHAT HE SENDS FROM OUR END IS OUR FAVORITE HOAGIE FROM PITTSBURGH. >>Jimmy: DANNY’S, THAT’S RIGHT, THAT’S WHAT HE SENT ME. >>WHAT DO YOU SEND BACK TO HIM?>>I SENT HIM AS I RECALL A Z-MAN SANDWICH FROM OKLAHOMA JOE’S IN KANSAS CITY, WHICH IS NOW CALLED JOE’S OF KANSAS CITY. BUT IT WAS — WE STARTED TALKING ABOUT SANDWICHES. AND THEN THE EXCHANGE PROGRAM.>>YOU KNOW HIM BETTER THAN ME, I’VE NEVER TALKED SANDWICHES WITH HIM AND HE’S MY BROTHER. IT STRIKES ME AS ODD IN THE TIMES WE LIVE. IT’S SO TROUBLED. YOU CAN ACTUALLY STILL SEND A TORPEDO-SHAPED OBJECT THROUGH THE MAIL?>>Jimmy: YES, YOU CAN. >>AND GET IT THROUGH TO SOMEBODY ELSE?>>Jimmy: YES, ABSOLUTELY. >>I ASSUME IT COMES IN COLD TO YOUR SECURITY ROOM, AND AFTER THEY X-RAY IT IT’S HEATED?>>Jimmy: NO YOU’D BE SURPRISED, SOMETIMES I’M SO HUNGRY I EAT IT FROZEN. [ LAUGHTER ] DID YOU VOTE YESTERDAY? I KNOW YOU’RE VERY INVOLVED WITH POLITICS. >>THAT’S THE ODD THING. I PROBABLY PAY — I MAKE JOKES OFF POLITICS. I WORKED ON A RALLY FOR YEARS. HE HAS A POLITICAL SHOW. IT’S A PLACE WHERE I HUNG MY HAT. LEFT TO MY OWN DEVICES I’M NOT MAD FOR POLITICS. >>Jimmy: SO YOU’VE BEEN PUSHED INTO THAT A LITTLE BIT?>>FROM A CAREER STANDPOINT. ONCE YOU’RE A “WEEKEND UPDATE” ANCHOR YOU MAKE JOKES ABOUT THE CURRENT EVENTS. LEFT TO MY OWN DEVICES. I WENT TO VOTE YESTERDAY AND I WON’T EVEN — I LIVE IN A SURF TOWN AND THEY DON’T EVEN GIVE YOU THE STICKER. YOU HAVE TO GET “I VOTED” TATTOOED ABOVE YOUR PUBIC MOUND. [ LAUGHTER ]>>Jimmy: THEY’RE TATTOOING PEOPLE?>>IT’S A HELL OF A THING. >>Jimmy: I HAVE TO TELL YOU SOMETHING. YOU AND I HAVE MET BEFORE. >>YEAH. >>Jimmy: A COUPLE OF TIMES. AND YOU KNOW, I WAS ALWAYS A BIG FAN OF YOURS. AND PEOPLE, THOUGH, TODAY ARE LIKE, WHAT? I THINK PEOPLE GET UPSET BECAUSE YOU’RE CONSERVATIVE. BECAUSE YOU’RE A COMEDIAN. I THINK IT’S WEIRD FOR A COMEDIAN TO BE CONSERVATIVE. UNUSUAL, I SHOULD SAY. THEY SAY, WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU? WHAT DID HAPPEN TO YOU, DENNIS? [ LAUGHTER ]>>I’M SOCIALLY LIBERAL AS ANYBODY. >>Jimmy: ARE YOU?>>WHEN I LOOK AT — I WAS WATCHING BACKSTAGE. THIS IS HOW INTERESTING THINGS ARE. WHEN I WATCH TRUMP, HE DOESN’T RANKLE ME LIKE HE RANKLES PEOPLE ON YOUR SIDE. THERE ARE DAYS HE’S A BUFFOON. THERE ARE DAYS I CAN’T BELIEVE THE STUFF HE SAYS. TODAY WHEN I WATCH THAT THING, I KIND OF LAUGH. I WATCH PELOSI AND SHE DRIVES ME BATTY. >>Jimmy: INTERESTING. >>I KNOW ON YOUR SIDE, I THINK PELOSI’S KIND OF ACCEPTABLE AND SHE SAYS STUFF LIKE THAT, THAT DRIVES ME MORE CRAZY. ALL I KNOW IS THIS. I’VE MET SO MANY NICE PEOPLE, MOST OF MY DEAREST FRIENDS IN THE WORLD ARE LIBERALS. I REFUSE TO GO THROUGH LIFE DEFINING WHO I’M GOING TO BE FRIENDS WITH, WHO I’M GOING TO LOVE, WHO I’M GOING TO HANG WITH FROM A “D” OR “R” AFTER PEOPLE’S NAMES. WHEN I LOOK AT SOCIALLY LIBERAL, THAT’S WHEN I DON’T DIG WHAT THE CONSERVATIVES DO, THEY COME OFF LIKE THE TOWN ELDERS FROM “FOOTLOOSE” AND THAT’S A DRAG TO ME. I THINK LIBERALISM’S LIKE A NUDE BEACH, IT SOUNDS GOOD TILL YOU GET THERE. [ LAUGHTER ] [ APPLAUSE ] THEN THERE’S A LOT OF KANKLES AND MISSPELLED TATTOOS. [ LAUGHTER ]>>Jimmy: I WANT TO MEMBERS YOUR SPECIAL. IT IS VERY FUNNY. I’VE WATCHING THIS SPECIAL AND LAUGHING. THEN WE COME TO THIS. >>ONE THING I DON’T WATCH ANYMORE IS THE OSCARS. INSTEAD OF WATCHING THE OSCARS THIS YEAR, I KAYAKED SOLO ACROSS THE PACIFIC WITH A RABID RACCOON IN MY LAP. [ LAUGHTER ] [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>>Jimmy: OH. I HOSTED THE OSCARS. [ LAUGHTER ]>>JIMMY, HONEY, BABY. LET ME FINISH. LISTEN. YOU GET SHOW BUSINESS. AND I LIKE THE WAY THAT YOU ALTERNATINGLY, LIKE MAY, ARE OUR GOOD FRIEND MARTY SHORT, TAKE IT SERIOUSLY WHEN IT DESERVES IT, YOU PISS ON IT WHEN IT DESERVES THAT TOO. AFTER YOU FINISH THEIR MONOLOGUE, I THINK THEY TAKE THEMSELVES WAY TOO SERIOUS. >>Jimmy: OF COURSE. >>AS MUCH AS I’D LIKE TO STICK AROUND FOR TWO HOURS AND SEE WHAT THE ASSOCIATE SOUND EDITOR ON “THOR: RAGNAROK,” THE WAY HE WANTS ME TO VOTE, I CAN’T DO IT. IT’S JUST GOTTEN TOO HEAVY FOR ME. >>Jimmy: YOU ACTUALLY WOULD BE SURPRISES, HE’S ACTUALLY QUITE CONSERVATIVE. [ LAUGHTER ]>>WE MET AT MARTY SHORT’S HOUSE. >>Jimmy: THAT’S RIGHT. >>WE HAD EIGHT MALE COMEDIANS HAVING DINNER TOGETHER. IT WAS LIKE “THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF PENITTOWN REUNION.” LIKE THE FREEMASONS WITH BETTER GRUDGES. >>Jimmy: YEAH, THAT WAS A FUN NIGHT, ACTUALLY. >>YOU WOULD THINK IT WOULD BE — YOU’D GET EIGHT MALE COMEDIANS TOGETHER AT A DINNER TABLE WOULD BE LIKE MONKEYS FIGHTING OVER A PREMISE WITH FONDUE FORKS. IT WAS POLITE AND INFORMATIVE. I MET YOU AND YOUR BABY HAD JUST — >>Jimmy: WE’D JUST HAD THAT ISSUE. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN. IN A MAY YOU WERE LIKE THE MAYOR OF PENISTOWN. MARTIN SHORT WAS KIND OF LIKE THE GOVERNOR OR PRESIDENT OF PENISTOWN. IT WAS HIS TOWN WE WERE IN.>>IT WAS GENE LEVY. >>Jimmy: RIGHT. >>TOM HANKS. WAS HANKS THERE?>>Jimmy: HE SHOWED UP. >>CONAN O’BRIEN. ANDY SAMBERG. A KID ANYMNAMED NICK CONTROL. YOU, I, JOHN MULLANY. WE HAD TO HAVE A 24/7 HEIMLICH PERSON ON. AS WE ATE — IT WAS THE FUNNIEST TABLE I’VE EVER SAT AT. >>Jimmy: IT WAS A LOT OF FUN AND YOU WERE THE FUNNIEST ONE AT THE TABLE. I THINK IT’S A GREAT MESSAGE IS THAT, COMEDY IS STRONGER THAN POLITICS, FOLKS. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] THANK YOU, JEFF. OH, JEFF’S ON VACATION. ANYWAY. IT WAS GREAT. >>THANKS, BROTHER. >>Jimmy: YOUR SPECIAL IS VERY FUNNY. “FAKE NEWS, REAL JOKES” IS DOWNLOADABLE NOW AND YOU CAN SEE DENNIS ON TOUR WITH MARK STEYN

100 thoughts on “Dennis Miller on Being a Conservative Comedian

  1. remember ten years ago when everyone had already forgotten who dennis miller was? …pepperidge farm remembers…

  2. SO disingenuous. He’s not socially liberal. Whenever he went on bill o’reilly’s show he’d eagerly trot out the latest anti-liberal talking points. Which would be fine…if he was funny and his references weren’t only penetrable to people born before 1971. And Jimmy’s fake sympathy laugh makes it all the more egregious

  3. Let's see how honest Youtube really is. Kimmel is a master Hypocrite. He pretends to be sincere, and is sincerely a double-speak master that guarantee's his followers will always agree with him.

  4. Politics is stronger than comedy…

    Well in that case I guess we wouldn’t want to fight carrot top. Instead… Arnold The governator or Jesse Ventura.

  5. Jesus Christ Dennis Miller is such a doofus. His comedy would've been cheesy in the 50s. Pretty tolerable in this interview, though.

  6. The studio liberal maniacs would never entertain the thought of a late nite conservative talk show. It would be to detrimental to their cause of destroying America. So far they are doing a great job at doing and couldn't afford it. It's bad enough that Fox is the kryptonite to the superman executives. Their liberal run network propaganda machine couldn't tolerate it. My late nite entertainment is called Hannity. Tucker and Laura. It's all I need.

  7. Hey Jimmy witch one of the clowns you voting for? was it the 70 % tax on your rich ass that sounds good? or maybe taking your private health insurance. or was it the paying for health insurance for everyone that hops the border that was invited in.. Anything to get rid of the bad orange man right?

  8. A lot the conservative comments here seems to be ignoring the fact that Miller is downplaying his conservative comedy.

  9. I laugh all the time but I knew nick Kroll when I was younger unfortunately and he never made anyone laugh. He just creeped people out

  10. Jimmy says "It's weird for a comedian to be conservative " and "What happened to you" but also "Comedy is bigger than politics". What a massive hypocrite

  11. So when Dennis Miller is around fellow republicans, he’s very political. But when he’s around democrats, he’s “not a politically-minded individual.”

  12. When Dennis was doing Monday night football me and my boys met him at the St Louis rams practice facility the day before rams vs broncos September 2000.. he said four words " gents how are ya "

  13. “Comedy is stronger than politics”

    When comedians start doing comedy again, I’ll tune in. Until then, I’m tuned out.

  14. I used to think Kimmel was really funny, now I can't stomach Hollyweird trying to tell us how we should think

  15. Dennis Miller would beat out all three late nite shows, but the ZIONISTS don't want none of that. Look what happened to Bill Maher when he spoke out against the military INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX 🤘👹🤘

  16. At least Kimmel said one good thing at the end, and that is that Comedy transcends politics. That's because if you're funny it doesn't matter what Political view you have, which is really how life should be. Go figure. Nice country we live in these days where a red hat can turn a crowd into a group of rabbid zombies.

  17. I suspect Jimmy does what he does to keep his over the top paying job. He sold his soul in a 'Cash for hate' over principles.

  18. Jimmy Kimmel is a good commie and would fit in perfectly in North Korea, how about you move there you piece of garbage.

  19. Jimmy Kimmel could learn a thing or two from Dennis Miller about being a comedian. Jimmy is just a mouthpiece now, courtesy of his handler. What people need to understand is that is the left vs right paradigm is as phoney as a $4 dollar bill, or as phoney as any paper fiat currency from the Federal Reserve.

  20. It's weird that a comedian comes out as conservative in Hollywood (because they might get blacklisted), but a fair number of comedians are conservative. I don't know what Jimmy is going on about. It's weird that Jimmy thinks it's weird someone has different political views than him.

  21. You are not funny, Kimmel and only have a show to promote the Zionist agenda! Keep trying to throw Conservatives under the bus which you never win at!

  22. Both Dennis and Jimmy pandering to the other side that they continuously bash. Wasted opportunity, they should’ve got after it, throwing joke bombs at each other defending their political views.

  23. A lot of the political stuff Jimmy does makes upset, but I really respect him for having Dennis Miller on who is honest about his beliefs but I don’t think anyone could say is bad person

  24. I didn't vote for Trump, I'd consider myself centre & slightly left… But the far left (like Jimmy Kimmel) have gone sooo radically left & are intolerant (violently sometimes I.e. Andy Ngo) of anyone who holds any position other than their own.

  25. Jimmy is a schmuck. He keeps asking about politics, wanting Miller to say something stupid. Instead, in Miller style, he explains it for what it is from an unbiased perspective. Jimmy immediately changes the subject.

  26. once the frankfurt school marxists are done pushing the entire political spectrum leftwards, guys like miller will be in political reeducation camps

  27. Kimmel is just a sellout. There’s no way he agrees with the left, he just realizes that’s where the money and fame is.

  28. So close to seeing another cry fest, if only he would’ve pushed his luck with Miller..
    He knew he was outclassed in every way, still, it would’ve been great to see him eviscerated on his own show..

  29. Kimmel is complete GARBAGE. The real question is what happened to you? I remember when you were kinda funny. Now you're a complete fraud. A puppet for leftism. The Oscars are for brain dead masses. It doesn't matter if Dennis is a conservative. It only matters if he is FUNNY.

  30. Jimmy Kimmel is a fake,The man show to Hillary Clinton's foot stool,Guys a political tool,TRUMP 2020…..

  31. You can see that Kimmel is uncomfortable with Miller… probably afraid Miller would ask him a Political question and he would look like an even bigger fucktard

  32. The reason all those 8 comedians got along well isn't because Comedy is stronger than politics but that they're all millionaires. When everyone in the room has more than 10 million dollars then its all nothing but happy times. People that get emotional about politics are poor people.

  33. You ask him being a comedian as a Conservative??..so,what are u Jimmy Kimmel,…hmmm,a dumbest comedian ever.

  34. 'At the end of the day we're all wealthy white men here at the table, so politics is water under the bridge' haha
