Dennis Miller Early Career
When Miller was out of luck finding work in journalism after graduating from college, he worked as a janitor, ice cream scooper, deli cashier, and floral delivery guy, among other odd occupations.
In the years after these jobs, he oversaw the bowling alley, video games, and air hockey league at Point Park’s Recreation Room. When Miller saw Robin Williams on HBO doing stand-up comedy in 1979, he made up his mind to pursue his goal.
Miller got his start in the comedy scene at open-mic nights in Oakland, Castle Shannon, and Pittsburgh. He didn’t have much money or a car during this period. His savings allowed him to relocate to New York City, where he resided in an extremely cramped apartment resembling a bunker.
After Miller’s joke tied for second place and won $500 in a Playboy magazine contest, he gained notoriety in New York. He gained even greater attention performing in the New York Laff-Off Contest, drawing the interest of talent agents.

Dennis Miller Real Estate

Their ownership of the property across the street from the home stated earlier remains intact. In 2013, they put the house up for sale for $5 million, but no one bought it. They are still the current owners.
Another 4-plus-acre property in Montecito was theirs for more than ten years. In November 2020, they unfathomably sold the property for $49 million. The identities of the home’s purchasers—Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres—became public knowledge shortly after.
They bought a beachfront house in the little celebrity community of Carpinteria for $11.75 million in 2003, just south of Montecito. In March of 2015, they accepted $19 million for the house after listing it for $22.5 million in 2015. Lynda Weinman, creator of Lynda.com, was the buyer back then. In 2020, at a price of somewhat under $24 million, Lynda sold this home.
