NYCB Theatre Westbury
Bill O’Reilly, the godfather of “no spin” and in-your-face television, and Dennis Miller, the king of references and rants, are teaming up to take on Long Island during their Bolder & Fresher 2011 Tour on Saturday, August 20 at 8:00 p.m. at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury.

O’Reilly’s broadcast career started in Scranton, Pennsylvania long before the folks from The Office settled there. He has been both a local reporter and news anchor in other cities, including Dallas, Boston and New York. Audiences across America got to meet O’Reilly when he worked at CBS News and ABC News and when he hosted the first version of Inside Edition. But it was when he landed at Fox News in 1996 and began The O’Reilly Factor that he achieved his current national and international stature and enormous following.
Miller is a five-time Emmy award winner for his critically acclaimed halfhour, live talk show, Dennis Miller Live, which had a nine year run on HBO. He also wrote and starred in the Emmynominated cable comedy special Raw Feed. That show, along with the six other standup specials he did for HBO from 1988-2006, is featured in the recently released DVD set, Dennis Miller: The HBO Specials. His eighth special for HBO, Dennis Miller: The Big Speech debuted last year and is available on DVD. He was the host and executive producer of CNBC’s Dennis Miller, a topical interview talk show featuring reasoned discourse, opinion and humor. Additionally, Miller has appeared on many politically oriented television talk shows.
