Dennis Miller is the second-most-entertaining, freedom-loving, semi-intellectual, autodidactic, libertarian funnyperson in the country. (The first is Penn Jillette.) You know the résumé, more or less -- Saturday Night Live, the HBO shows, the radio programs, the rants, the guest appearances on Fox News, in which he plays gleefully to the resentments of that network's gazillion-strong audience without mentioning his troubling support for gay marriage and abortion rights. He'll be at the Kravis Center (701 Okeechobee Blvd., WPB) Thursday, telling it like it is -- or, at least, telling it like he thinks the paying public thinks it oughta be. It's a tough kind of contortionism, and nobody's better at it. Tickets cost $25 to $100, and you can get 'em at kravis.org.
