Emmy Award-Winning Comedian and Talk Show Host Dennis Miller Returns to The Orleans Showroom April 17-18

Crowd favorite Dennis Miller returns to The Orleans Showroom April 17 and 18.

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 1980’s as a “Weekend Update” correspondent on “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 an 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.

Dana Perino to Emcee Truckload Carriers Association Gala Benefitting Wreaths Across America

Dana Perino to Emcee Truckload Carriers Association Gala
Benefitting Wreaths Across America

Second annual event will raise awareness of and support for placing remembrance wreaths
on gravestones at Arlington National Cemetery

 

The Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) is pleased to announce that Dana Perino will serve as master of ceremonies for its gala benefitting Wreaths Across America (WAA), a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring and thanking United States veterans for their service and sacrifice. Funds generated by the second annual event, to be held September 9, 2014, at the Grand Hyatt Washington in Washington, DC, will be used to purchase fresh remembrance wreaths to be placed upon veterans’ graves at Arlington National Cemetery on National Wreaths Across America Day, held annually the second Saturday in December.

Perino, former press secretary for President George W. Bush, is now a FOX News contributor and co-host of The Five, where she draws upon her background as a journalist and government spokesperson to discuss current affairs. She is the president of a successful communications business and a frequent public speaker on political trends. Perino also serves on the Leadership Board for Companions for Heroes, an organization that matches rescue animals with active duty military personnel, military veterans, and first-responders recovering from the psychological challenges they suffered during service to the United States.

Perino’s participation in the event is being sponsored by Pilot Flying J of Knoxville, Tennessee. According to Jimmy Haslam, CEO and president, “Pilot Flying J is a proud supporter of Wreaths Across America, and we are thrilled to sponsor Dana Perino as the emcee of the 2014 Wreaths Across America Gala. Ms. Perino will bring grace and enthusiasm to this event as she helps honor our nation’s veterans, troops, and the professional driver community who delivers these wreaths each December.”

Karen Worcester, executive director of Wreaths Across America, based in Columbia Falls, Maine, said, “We couldn’t be more thrilled to learn that Ms. Perino had agreed to emcee TCA’s second annual Wreaths Across America Gala. Her dedication to our nation’s veterans and troops, as well as her work ethic and integrity, are the core principles this organization values most. For her to make time in her extremely busy schedule to be a part of this great event speaks volumes.”

Trucking plays an essential role in WAA’s annual wreath-laying event. Every year, professional truck drivers donate their time and motor carriers donate their trucks and fuel to deliver the wreaths. In 2013 alone, more than 500,000 wreaths were delivered to almost 900 veterans cemeteries across the United States. Since 2012, TCA has coordinated this nationwide effort, as well as raised money for the placement of wreaths at Arlington National Cemetery.

The gala, which kicks off TCA’s fund-raising season for WAA, will include a reception, dinner, dessert, speakers, and several fund-raisers, including a silent auction. To top off the evening, guests will be treated to an intimate acoustic set by Nashville recording artist Lindsay Lawler, the official spokesperson of TCA’s Highway Angel program.

For more information about the gala, or to reserve a table, please visit www.truckload.org/WAA-Gala. You can also stay informed about the event by following TCA on Twitter – www.truckload.org/Twitter — and Facebook — www.truckload.org/Facebook — and by using the hashtag #TCAWAA14 on both.
