Larry Miller is one of the most enduring and irresistible comic personalities at work today. Hundreds of stand-up appearances on Leno, Letterman, Conan O'Brien, and other TV shows, and his unforgettable roles in films as diverse as Pretty Woman and Best in Show have made Larry's acerbic wit and character (he calls himself "a founding member of the Cranky Nit-Pickers of America") a staple of the American comic diet. And in recent years he has gained a new, more political following, penning a regular humor column in The Weekly Standard and making frequent appearances with TV hosts such as Bill Maher and Dennis Miller.
Now, in Spoiled Rotten America, he fixes his gaze on the outrages of contemporary life-from "pop stars thinking deeply and sharing their thoughts"to "pillow-soft Americans who stop by the Pizza Hut before collapsing into the Wide-O-Lounger just in time to watch 22 pimple-faced steroid-eaters slam into each other at 14 miles an hour."
Mixing the political with the personal as deftly as P. J. O'Rourke or George Carlin, Larry Miller is today's new voice of outrage for the little guy-for "anyone who walks into the backyard at night, lifts a proud chin, and screams, 'I am not wrong ' before going back inside to resume getting quietly hammered while his wife sits in the next room watching figure skating."
