NEW YORK, Oct. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- T.J. Miller brings his live-wire delivery, irreverent characters and ridiculous notions to his first-ever COMEDY CENTRAL original one-hour stand-up special, "T.J. Miller: No Real Reason" debuting on Saturday, November 12 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Named one of Variety's "10 Comics to Watch" and one of Entertainment Weekly's "Next Big Things in Comedy," Miller continues to ascend the comedy ladder with an exciting performance in his first-ever one hour stand-up special. Taped in front of a raucous audience at the Boulder Theater in his home state of Colorado, Miller shares his tenacious escapades at the DMV and explains why he always requires a bad turkey sandwich and a pinata at every show. Miller's hilarious and bizarre original characters, outlandish physical comedy and self-deprecating humor make this a breakout performance not to miss.
On Tuesday, November 15, "T.J. Miller: No Real Reason" will be released in the U.S. on DVD by COMEDY CENTRAL Home Entertainment. The uncensored and extended DVD includes bonus features and over 20 minutes of content not seen on COMEDY CENTRAL. Outtakes include "Paul's T.V. (A Work in Progress)," "Drug Mime" and "Griffin: Not What You Expected." Two short films, "The Building Blocks of a Great Day" and "The Stoop" are also included.
"T.J. Miller: No Real Reason" is executive produced by Miller, Dave Becky, David Miner and Michelle Caputo, produced by Arts & Industry and directed by Shannon Hartman. Jonas Larsen and Toni Magon are the executives in charge of production for COMEDY CENTRAL.
Miller is becoming one of the most sought after young comedians and actors in the comedy world. He is known to many from big screen hits including "She's Out Of My League," "Cloverfield" and "Our Idiot Brother," as well as being a COMEDY CENTRAL favorite ("The Benson Interruption," "Hot List," "Live At Gotham" and "Mash Up"). Miller's other film credits include the upcoming comedy "Seeking A Friend For the End of The World" starring Steve Carell and Keira Knightley, "Yogi Bear," "Gulliver's Travels," "Unstoppable," "Extract," "How To Train Your Dragon" and "Get Him To The Greek."
Miller is currently touring the country performing his critically acclaimed and uncritically defamed stand-up act. In September, COMEDY CENTRAL Records released his comedy oriented pop/hip-hop music album titled "The Extended Play EP."
