The genius behind 'Saturday Night Live's' greatest Weekend Update moments explains the show's leftward lurch.

Dennis Miller could use a break.

Sure, his new comedy special “Dennis Miller: Fake News, Real Jokes” has its political moments. The legendary wit still longs for a moment when we can all just get along … and laugh.

It’s just one of the revelations from our chat with the iconic funny man.

He’s still not a political beast at heart. Dennis’ jokes pack plenty of heat, but they’re never as vicious as your average late night monologue in the Age of Trump.
