TJ Miller @ The Pittsburgh Improv April 19th, 2008

Comedian T.J. Miller appears on ABC's Carpoolers as "Marmaduke" and can be seen (but mostly heard) in J.J. Abrams' CLOVERFIELD as "Hud," the character who holds the camera during the movie. Originally from Denver, Colorado, where he did sketch, standup and improve comedy for about 4 years before moving to Chicago, TJ Miller has appeared on PBS on the show The Standard Deviants, and in various DVDs and school educational programs. He has done voice over for Old Style, Second City Las Vegas and The Chicago Historical Society. He studied Classical Acting at B.A.D.A in Oxford, England and circus arts at Frichess Theatre Urbain. After moving to Chicago he performed at comedy venues in all over Chicago and New York. He has improvised with the group Chuckle Sandwich (The Toronto International Improv Festival, DC Comedyfest), and Sturgis (IO), and performed sketch comedy with Heavy Weight (The Chicago Sketchfest, Second City Unhinged). He toured with Second City for almost 2 years, and was on the house team Bullet Lounge at IO. As of 2007, he is residing in Los Angeles, where he struggles to find meaning in an uncertain world.
