T.J. Miller's 'The Gentle Giant Tour' is coming to Wiseguys Las Vegas Town Square! T.J. MILLER is a comedian. He has been diligently working to make people laugh for over two and a half years because life is tragic and the best thing he can do is make you giggle and perhaps pee. He is famous in Norway. A skilled improviser, no show is ever the same. Let me repeat that- no show you ever see will be the same. Dare you? See them all? His hour-long comedy specials DEAR JONAH (YouTube), METICULOUSLY RIDICULOUS (HBO) and NO REAL REASON (Comedy Central) are available to stream now wherever streaming is streamed. His forthcoming special THE PHILOSOPHY CIRCUS showcases his talents as a clown, a juggler, and terrible ventriloquist. Is he a musician? No. However, he has two music albums, THE EXTENDED PLAY E.P., a hip-hop/pop/folk music E.P. with 41 tracks, and THE EXTENDED PLAY E.P.: THE ILLEGAL ART REMIXTAPE- available wherever fake music is listened to.
Miller’s voice stars as Gene in the EMOJI MOVIE and Fred in Disney’s Academy Award-winning BIG HERO 6. He voiced Tuffnut in the Oscar-nominated HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON and HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2. He played Auggie in the first R-rated stop-motion film HELL AND BACK, and Prancer in ICE AGE: A MAMMOTH CHRISTMAS. A reindeer!
On television, he voiced Robbie from GRAVITY FALLS, Tuffnut in DRAGONS: RIDERS OF BERK, Randy in F IS FOR FAMILY and a volcano in FAMILY GUY. Don’t forget GORBURGER, a show so strange you’ll just have to google it. And that’s his voice.
You may recognize his non-animated face and body from DEADPOOL 1 & 2, the highest-grossing R-rated films of all time, forever, 2014’s surprise indie hit TRANSFORMERS 4: AGE OF EXTINCTION, Mike Judge’s HBO series SILICON VALLEY (Critics’ Choice Award for Best Supporting Actor), THOSE WHO CAN’T, GARFUNKEL AND OATS, HAPPY ENDINGS, appearances on KIMMEL, FERGUSON, COLBERT and CONAN, or briefly on THE GOODWIN GAMES (canceled after 7 episodes) or CARPOOLERS (13 episodes). He was on CHELSEA LATELY quite a bit and even guest hosted for Chelsea. A ‘regular’ some might call him. Who those people are he’ll never know.
He wrote, produced and starred in the Sundance accepted shorts SUCCESSFUL ALCOHOLICS and I’M HAVING A DIFFICULT TIME KILLING MY PARENTS. Neither won awards. T.J. has been in over 25 major studio films- CLOVERFIELD, SHE'S OUT OF MY LEAGUE, Mike Judge’s EXTRACT, SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD, ROCK OF AGES, GULLIVER’S TRAVELS, OUR IDIOT BROTHER, YOGI BEAR 3D (for which he gave himself a Critic’s Choice Award for Best Supporting Character in a Talking Bear Comedy), 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, UNDERWATER opposite Kristen Stewart; a sci-fi disaster thriller- the perfect full circle return to his roots in CLOVERFIELD, and finally THE STAND-IN opposite Drew Barrymore, an official selection for the TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL, canceled due to the pandemic and 2020 generally being a difficult of a year.
He resides in Manhattan, NY, and Hollywood, California. He was born in Denver. He died in 2010 of an AVM. He is first and foremost, a comedian. His standup is “Smooth Like Fire, Hip Like Lincoln.” He will work until his death to make you happy. He loves you. He is a gentle giant, and would like you to see a live show. It’s better that way.
