It's time for the revenge of the nerds. HBO's original television series Silicon Valley is quickly winning over cable-TV crowd. But before this quirky comedy of geeky up-and-comers heads back to California to begin filming its second season, Silicon stars T.J. Miller, Kumail Nanjiani, and Thomas Middleditch are heading to Phoenix for a one-night-only show.
Although the their faces are fresh to HBO, chances are you've seen one of more of these actors playing minor roles major films. There's Miller who was named in Variety's "Top 10 Comics to Watch" and appeared in film likes She's Out of My League and Get Him to the Greek; Nanjiani has had roles in Life as We Know It and The Five Year Engagement; and Middleditch who's carried roles in Splinterheads and the Wolf of Wall Street.
Miller, Nanjiani, and Middleditch are coming to Stand Up Live on Friday, June 6, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for this 21-and-over show are $25 with a two-drink minimum. For more information, visit www.standuplive.com or call 480-719-6100.
