The Plug - Drop in for a candid conversation with compelling artists, athletes and creators as we discuss their career inspirations, disappointments, and deconstruct the system... Season 5 Live Now!

    T.J. MILLER

    T.J. MILLER

    T.J. Miller is a standup comedian and actor who has appeared on Silicon Valley, Deadpool, Transformers, and numerous comedy specials. Although he’s had a taste of Hollywood success, lately he’s chosen a different path. Rather than chasing acting roles on the west coast, he’s made the conscious choice to live in New York City and continue to tirelessly refine his skills as a Manhattan standup comic. This week we sit down to discuss why being a respected comic is more important to him than being recognized as a great actor. We'll also find out what being a philosophy major taught him about comedy and what happens when you spill a drink on someone at a party wearing a gold-sequined tuxedo. Don't miss this special episode recorded live at Newsstand Studios in Rockefeller Center.

He's self-financed the construction of over 27 skate parks across his home state of Montana.
