In the late 1980s my family traveled to New York for a sightseeing trip that included all the expected haunts: The Statue of Liberty, Carnegie Deli and a few Broadway shows.

The unquestionable highlight of the trip, however, was when my then 17-year-old brother Stephen excitedly bounded back from a late-night stroll through Times Square.

Walking through Midtown, he had run into Dennis Miller, already nationally known as one of the biggest and funniest stars on Saturday Night Live.  Both he and I were huge fans and could do many of Miller’s best bits from memory.

Dennis Miller graciously stopped to speak with my brother and encouraged him to follow his own dreams of pursuing a career in the performing arts.  Stephen cherished and talked about that experience for years.

Now, more than 23 years later, it’s my sincere honor to occasionally guest on Dennis’ extremely popular and always insightful radio show.  I’ll be joining him at 9:45AMCT today and invite you to listen in.

A funny man?  Yes.  But even more than that, a good man.
