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 for over 15 years, 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 content 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 Rrated 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
to understand. He has had 2 short films he wrote, produced and starred in selected for SundanceSUCCESSFUL ALCOHOLICS and I’M HAVING A DIFFICULT TIME KILLING MY PARENTS.
You may recognize his non-animated face and body from his roles in FOX’s big screen comic book
adaptation of DEADPOOL, the highest grossing R-rated film of all time, 2014’s surprise indie hit
TRANSFORMERS 4, 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, COLBERT and CONAN, or even THE GOODWIN GAMES which was
canceled after 7 episodes (he was also on CARPOOLERS with Jerry O’Connel and that lasted 13
episodes). When CHELSEA LATELY was a show, T.J. was on that show quite a bit. A ‘regular’ some might
call him. Who those people are he’ll never know.
Miller 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. can be seen in OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY, opposite Jason Bateman and Jennifer
Aniston, READY PLAYER ONE directed by Steven Spielberg, & DEADPOOL 2. T.J.’s latest film
UNDERWATER opposite Kristen Stewart, is a Twentieth Century Fox disaster thriller that is the perfect
full circle return to his roots in Cloverfield.
He resides in Manhattan, NY, where he struggles to find meaning in an uncertain world.
He is first and foremost, and always will be, a comedian. His Standup is “Smooth Like Fire, Hip Like
He will work until his death to make you happy. He loves you. Come and enjoy him perform - you need
