About T.J. Miller
A headlining comedian for years, he is perhaps better known as an actor thanks to his run on the hit HBO series Silicon Valley. He left that show after two seasons, much to the dismay of fans including Jimmy Kimmel, who asked Miller about it last year on his talk show. Miller explained he simply wanted to spend more time with his wife in New York and that the plot presented a good exit point. On stage, Miller’s act can be described as “contained silliness.” “That’s a pretty good way of putting it,” he says. “I don’t think I’ve ever heard that exact phrase. I like to think that I’m a very polite maniac.” Miller offers up a variety of comedy in his set. n 2008, he made his acting debut in Cloverfield, and from 2010 to 2019, he voiced Tuffnut Thorston in all three How to Train Your Dragon films. From 2014 to 2017, he starred as Erlich Bachman in the HBO sitcom Silicon Valley, and also played Marvel Comics character Weasel in 2016's Deadpool and its 2018 sequel, Deadpool 2. Miller also has had roles in films such as Yogi Bear, She's Out of My League, Transformers: Age of Extinction, Big Hero 6, Office Christmas Party, The Emoji Movie and Ready Player One.
