He’s a wanted man (sort of): TJ Miller is one of the most sought after comedians in the comedy world, but not in the drama world, or the finance world. He was named one of Variety’s “Top 10 Comics to Watch,” and EW's “Next Big Things in Comedy”.
He’s got stamina: TJ is a nationally touring stand-up artist, crisscrossing the country listening to Kris Kross (he's also done shows in the U.K., Canada and Puerto Rico (Puerto Rico did not go well)). He has been performing his absurdist observational stand-up act for over 10 years, and has never gone to the bathroom in his pants on stage. TJ got his start touring with Second City in Chicago and improvising with Annoyance Theater, iO, and managers at electronics stores asking why he was late and smelled like gin.
He’s animated: TJ’s voice stars in Disney’s Academy Award-winning animated feature, Big Hero 6. TJ also talks like an old drag queen after a hard night of chain smoking, and thus voiced the character Tuffnut in the Oscar-nominated animated film How to Train Your Dragon 1 & 2 as well as the Netflix TV series of the same name. He also voices Robbie from Gravity Falls on Disney, and GORBURGER, a very strange show you just have to google to understand.
He’s real: You may recognize TJ’s 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, and Mike Judge’s HBO comedy series Silicon Valley, for which he received the Critics’ Choice Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Television Comedy. He will also appear in the upcoming film Ready Player One directed by Steven Spielberg.
