Las Vegas—Five-time Emmy Award® winner and crowd favorite Dennis Miller returns to The Orleans Showroom August 8 and 9.
Celebrated as a witty comedian with an entertaining and intriguing stand-up routine, Miller keeps audiences laughing with his irreverent observations. A favorite of the public and critics alike, The New York Times said, “Mr. Miller is exquisitely attuned to contemporary foibles … his material can be scathing, his delivery low-key … Mr. Miller reaches a bit farther than most comedians for the scorching comment … this smart aleck has an uncommonly sharp eye.”
Called “one of the premiere comedy talents in America today,” Miller emerged on the national scene during the 1980s as the “Weekend Update” correspondent on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” After leaving SNL in 1991, Miller moved to HBO, where he hosted the critically-acclaimed talk show “Dennis Miller Live” for nine seasons. Miller is a regular on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” and “The O’Reilly Factor.” He was also host and executive producer of CNBC’s “Dennis Miller,” which featured conversation, opinion and humor.
In a career that has spanned far beyond showrooms and interview sets, Miller has also made a name for himself as a film actor and author. Notable motion picture credits include such mid-‘90s favorites as “Disclosure,” “The Net” and “Murder at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.” Miller’s “rant” books, including “I Rant Therefore I Am,” “Ranting Again” and “The Rants” have all been on The New York Times best-sellers list.
Miller garnered three Writer’s Guild of America Awards, as well as an additional WGA Award for his 1997 HBO special, “Dennis Miller: Citizen Arcane.” In addition, he wrote and starred in the Emmy-nominated cable comedy special “Raw Feed.”
Miller is host of the nationally syndicated radio show, “The Dennis Miller Show,” airing weekdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. EST at www.dennismillerradio.com
Showtime is 8 p.m. Tickets are available starting from $54.95, plus tax and convenience fees, and can be purchased at any Boyd Gaming Box Office, by calling 702.365.7075, or visiting www.orleanscasino.com

7,000 Square Foot Liaison Nightclub to Open Summer 2014
Casting Calls set for Las Vegas (May 17) & Los Angeles (May 20)
LAS VEGAS – To say that Victor Drai is a busy man would be an understatement. Currently putting the finishing touches on his new Drai’s Beach Club • Nightclub at The Cromwell in Las Vegas (opening Memorial Day Weekend), Drai has announced the opening of Liaison: the first-ever gay nightclub at a Las Vegas casino. Located at Bally’s, Liaison will open this summer in the space currently occupied by Drai’s famed After Hours nightclub and the club will be holding casting calls for all positions in Las Vegas on May 17 at Drai’s After Hours and on May 20 in Los Angeles at Victor Drai’s new Rare by Drais.
Together with Creative Director Eduardo Cordova, the man who has been credited with bringing gay nightlife to the forefront of the club scene in Las Vegas, Liaison will be a seven-night-a-week experience featuring an eclectic mix of hip hop, rap, top 40 and a drag night. “With our After Hours club positioned to move back to its original home underground at The Cromwell, I wanted to use the space to continue to transform the nightlife scene in Las Vegas,” explains Victor Drai. “Now I have the opportunity to bring a gay nightclub to the center of the Strip, and with Caesars Entertainment and Eduardo Cordova on my team, I have no doubt that Liaison will be a game-changer.”
Everything at Liaison will symbolize elegance. From the saturated, sexy dark finishes of gold and black found throughout the club to the opulent design featuring an abundance of mirrors and Venetian-style chandeliers. Liaison will be intimate, yet large enough to provide the social experience that is a signature of Drai’s venues. It will offer two club rooms, two DJ’s, multiple bars, stage and plenty of space for surprise performances. “The importance of having a gay nightclub in a major hotel/casino on the strip is huge,” notes Cordova. “It validates equality and demonstrates just how far we have progressed culturally. This has been the moment that I’ve been working towards for all these years and it’s exciting to see gay nightlife changing in such a big way; these are definitely exciting times in LGBT and Las Vegas history.”
With its center-strip location in the heart of Bally’s Las Vegas, Liaison is also helping to create a great new social experience for the millions of gay travelers that come to Las Vegas annually. “We are proud to be the home to Liaison and have no doubt that Victor will bring the same type of excitement and sophistication that he brings to all his endeavors,” says David Hoenemeyer, regional president, Caesars Entertainment. “This is an historic and exciting venture for all of us involved and it will no doubt enhance the guest experience for the gay travelers that visit our hotel and city every year.”
“With Victor’s years of perfecting the nightlife scene in Las Vegas, guests will now have an experience that is unlike any other,” adds partner Michael Gruber. “From the moment that they walk through the doors of Liaison, they will be taken to another level of nightlife.”
Located in the Bally’s casino, adjacent to Drai’s recently opened Indigo Lounge, Liaison is ready to take its place among the many important “firsts” that have occurred in Las Vegas. “It’s really hard to believe that this is the first gay nightclub inside a casino on the Las Vegas Strip,” adds Drai. “I am truly humbled to be part of a new era for the gay community.”
