T.J. MILLER is one of the most sought after comedians in the world, certainly the northern part of the western hemisphere. He has been diligently working to make people laugh for over fifteen years, and is driven by the altruistic mission statement that life is fundamentally tragic and the best thing he can do is provide an ephemeral escapism from that tragedy by doing comedy. He has been performing his absurdist observational standup act worldwide and has never gone to the bathroom in his pantaloons on stage. His act has been described as “a one man philosophy circus.”
His hour-long comedy specials T.J. MILLER: NO REAL REASON (Comedy Central) and T.J. MILLER: METICULOUSLY RIDICULOUS (HBO) are available to stream now wherever streaming is streamed. For no reason he produced two music albums, THE EXTENDED PLAY E.P., a hip-hop/pop/folk music E.P. with 41 tracks, and THE ILLEGAL ART REMIXTAPE- available now on iTunes and wherever fake music is sold. Miller’s voice stars as Gene in the EMOJI MOVIE and Fred in Disney’s Academy Award-winning animated
feature, BIG HERO 6. Miller also talks like an old drag queen after a hard night of chain smoking, and
thus has voiced many characters including the character Tuffnut in the Oscar-nominated animated films
HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON and HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2. He played Auggie in the first R-rated stop motion animated film HELL AND BACK with Nick Swardson and Prancer in ICE AGE: A MAMMOTH CHRISTMAS. In television, he voiced Robbie from GRAVITY FALLS, Tuffnut in How To Train Your Dragon’s DRAGONS: RIDERS OF BERK, Brad in HIGH SCHOOL USA!, Randy in F IS FOR FAMILY and a volcano in FAMILY GUY. Don’t forget about GORBURGER, a show so strange you’ll just have to google it.
He has had 2 short films he wrote, produced and starred in selected for Sundance- SUCCESSFUL
ALCOHOLICS and I’M HAVING A DIFFICULT TIME KILLING MY PARENTS.
You may recognize his non-animated face and body from his roles in DEADPOOL 1 & 2, the highest
grossing R-rated films of all time, 2014’s surprise indie hit TRANSFORMERS 4: AGE OF EXTINCTION, Pete Holmes’ HBO comedy series CRASHING, Mike Judge’s HBO comedy series SILICON VALLEY, for which he received the Critics’ Choice Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Television Comedy, Uncle Jake in THOSE WHO CAN’T, GARFUNKEL AND OATS, THE LEAGUE, HAPPY ENDINGS, appearances on KIMMEL,
FERGUSON, COLBERT and CONAN, or even THE GOODWIN GAMES which was canceled after 7 episodes (he was also on CARPOOLERS with Jerry O’Connell and that lasted 13 episodes). When CHELSEA LATELY was a show, T.J. was on it quite a bit and even guest hosted for Chelsea. A ‘regular’ some might call him.Who those people are he’ll never know.
T.J. has been in over 25 major studio films- more than Fabio (and HE was in Sharknado 5: Global
Swarming) including CLOVERFIELD, SHE’S OUT OF MY LEAGUE, Mike Judge’s EXTRACT, SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD, ROCK OF AGES, Jack Black’s GULLIVER’S TRAVELS, OUR IDIOT BROTHER, YOGI BEAR 3D (Ranger Jones, his greatest role to date), UNSTOPPABLE, GET HIM TO THE
GREEK, SEARCH PARTY, THE GOODS: LIVE HARD, SELL HARD, and finally his good friend Jay Baruchel’s GOON: LAST OF THE ENFORCERS.
Most recently, T.J. was the star of OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY, opposite Jason Bateman and Jennifer Aniston, i-R0ck in READY PLAYER ONE directed by Steven Spielberg, & DEADPOOL 2. T.J.’s latest films are UNDERWATER opposite Kristen Stewart which is a Twentieth Century Fox disaster thriller that is the perfect full circle return to his roots in Cloverfield and THE STAND-IN opposite Drew Barrymore, an official selection for the TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL, cancelled due to the pandemic and 2020 generally being a fuckstick of a year.
He resides in Manhattan, NY, where he struggles to create meaning in an uncertain world.
He is first and foremost, and always will be, a comedian. His Standup is “Smooth Like Fire, Hip Like Lincoln.”
He will work until his death to make you happy. He loves you. Come and enjoy him perform – you need
to laugh right now and he will make sure you laugh and feel safe doing it. See you soon!
