The Grawlix, a Denver-based trio of comedians who run the popular local standup show of the same name, just released a compilation album of the best stuff from their show in 2013. The album is free and features standup from two dozen comedians, including T.J. Miller, the Sklar Brothers, Beth Stelling, Baron Vaughn, Jonah Ray, Brent Weinbach, and of course, Grawlix members Adam Cayton-Holland, Andrew Orvedahl, and Ben Roy. If you haven't checked out The Grawlix's show in Denver due to not living in Denver, this album is the next best thing.
With last night's James Franco roast falling more in the tradition of classic roasts, we at Splitsider feel there's reason to be optimistic that upcoming Comedy Central's roasts will be fun, personal affairs rather than mean-spirited skewerings of unlikeable reality show stars. With that in mind, we decided to ask some of our favorite comedians and actors if they would be interested in being roasted, who they would want up on dais, and what faults of theirs would be put on display. Here's what they had to say:
The new Transformers movie just got a little more bearable. The Wrap reports that comedian T.J. Miller (She's Out of My League, Yogi Bear) has joined the cast of Michael Bay's latest robot thing, called Transformers 4 and starring Mark Wahlberg. Miller will be playing Wahlberg's best friend, a mechanic who we presume will be a "wisecracking mechanic." Miller is currently filming his first starring role in a movie, director Scot Armstrong's Search Party, which finds him playing one of three leads alongside Adam Pally (Happy Endings) and Thomas Middleditch (The Campaign), and a pilot for Mike Judge's Silicon Valley-set sitcom that he starred in was recently [...]
Hulu just added the pilot episode to Fox's new sitcom The Goodwin Games, which is set to premiere on May 20th. From the How I Met Your Mother team of Carter Bay, Craig Thomas, and Chris Harris, the show stars Becki Newton, Scott Foley, and T.J. Miller as a trio of siblings competing for their father's $23 million inheritance. Fox holding Goodwin Games until the summer means it's pretty much pre-canceled, but it's still a decent show that's worth checking out and one that Fox should have definitely aired during the regular broadcast season.
T.J. Miller is hard to define. His eclectic resume includes acting in movies like Cloverfield and Yogi Bear, voicing a character in How To Train Your Dragon, hosting Comedy Central's standup/sketch show Mash Up, appearing as the guest every week on his podcast Cashing In With T.J. Miller, and putting out a 41-track hip-hop comedy album, The Extended Play EP.Those who mostly know him as one the best show-derailing guests on Doug Loves Movies may be surprised by his bittersweet turns in short films like Successful Alcoholics andI'm Having a Difficult Time Killing My Parents.
During his recent New York visit, I got the chance to ride with him from Brooklyn’s Legion Bar, where [...]
Proving yet again that local morning programs can be awesome with the right guest, T.J. Miller dropped by a breakfast show in Kansas City yesterday and, as is his way, completely took over the segment. Inexplicably soaking wet, T.J. managed to get in a lot of dropping props, throwing CDs, and hitting on the host in only four minutes. (H/T The Comedy Bureau)
It's very rare to see the actual lifespan of a television series equal the length of time its story naturally dictated it should last. Shows seem to either overstay their welcome thanks to the promise of more money, or get cancelled before it and the network understands all of its strengths. The Goodwin Games, and all seven of its episodes, concluded last night, seven weeks after it showed up dead on arrival. Based on what was witnessed, the game ended way too soon.
And it was not as if The Goodwin Games was a filler sitcom that hit the reset button every week, where closure of any narrative loose [...]
Set List is an improvised stand-up show that originated in LA before touring the world and becoming an upcoming TV show in the UK and Australia, and now the show is premiering in the US as a web series on the Nerdist YouTube channel. Basically, each comedian comes out with no planned material and is given topics they must discuss as the show goes on. The first three episodes of the Set List web series debuted this week with Bob Odenkirk (above), T.J. Miller, and Glenn Wool (below) rising to the challenge. It's a unique concept for a stand-up show that often yields interesting results, and you no longer [...]
Community star Alison Brie has joined the cast of a promising new comedy called Search Party, The Wrap reports. The film follows two roommates, played by T.J. Miller (She's Out of My League) and Adam Pally (Happy Endings), going to dangerous lengths to get their buddy Nardo (Thomas Middleditch, The Campaign) back from Mexico after he's stranded there, naked. Brie will be playing a co-worker and love interest of either Miller or Pally's character. Rasing Hope's Shannon Woodward recently signed on to play Middleditch's character's girlfriend. This is shaping up to be a pretty impressive cast made up of funny young people who haven't had the chance to [...]
As time goes on, Comedy Central becomes less and less comedy's center but, as their fall schedule can attest, they still have some tricks up their sleeves. One being T.J. Miller's Mash Up, which has stand-ups like Hannibal Buress, Pete Holmes, and Reggie Watts perform sets, from which sketches are then performed. Comedy Central also announced their next few stand-up specials, which includes a new hour from Demetri Martin, Chris Hardwick, D.L. Hughley, and, so it goes, Jeff Dunham. Of course, Key & Peele and South Park will be back. Check out all the premiere dates below, if you dare…which you should because there's literally no danger in [...]
T.J. Miller went on breakfast TV in Edmonton, Canada this morning with some crazy hair and a too-small jacket to promote his local gigs. In under eight minutes, he managed to play with knives, drink from four glasses of orange juice, and defend Yogi Bear 3D as "the greatest piece of talking bear cinema that's ever been achieved." NBC need look no further for Matt Lauer's Today show replacement.
Here's the first episode of Comedy Central's new web series This Is Not Happening, hosted by Ari Shaffir and based on his live storytelling show of the same name. In this one, comedian T.J. Miller recounts the time he almost died in 2010, which is probably more exciting than anything you almost did in 2010.
HBO has ordered a new show from King of the Hill and Office Space mastermind Mike Judge. Deadline reports that the pay cable network has given a series order to a comedy Judge co-created with John Altschuler and Dave Krisnky (King of the Hill, The Goode Family) that was previously titled Silicon Valley. The show follows a bunch of people working in the tech industry and stars an impressive ensemble of up-and-comers including T.J. Miller, Thomas Middleditch, Josh Brener, Lindsey Broad,Christopher Evan Welch, Amanda Crew, Angela Trimbur, Zach Woods, and Kumail Nanjiani. It's been a good day for The Office alum Zach Woods, who also has a supporting role in USA's [...]
Here's the trailer for Season Two of The Gorburger Show, the web series in which comedian T.J. Miller plays a big furry blue monster who's hijacked a Japanese talk show and is hosting it himself. It kicks off on Monday, March 11th, on the YouTube channel TheWarnerSound. Guests this year include Jack Black, Flea, Henry Rollins, and Carson Daly – none of whom will be wearing giant blue monster suits, unfortunately.
