Sweet Valley Guy

On a raucous visit to a Midwestern TV morning show this past July, actor and comedian T.J. Miller asserted between bits, “I’m at that level of pseudo-celebrity where people say, ‘Hey, we went to high school together.’” Miller’s familiar face brings laughs to the opening weekend of Rick Bronson’s House of Comedy, starting on Thursday, September 4.

Currently starring in HBO’s Silicon Valley, Miller mixes absurdity, storytelling, and an affable sense of adventure whenever he grips a mic. Starting out in Chicago’s comedy scene, the comic’s stayed true to his roots while still acting in mainstream fare such as Yogi Bear, How to Train Your Dragon, and this summer’s Transformers: Age of Extinction. In addition to the weekend’s standup shows, there will be a live recording of the podcast Cashing In with T.J. Miller with co-host Cash Levy on Sunday.

T.J. Miller performs at the House of Comedy, 5350 East High Street, through Sunday. Thursday's show is at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $26.95. Visit to purchase tickets or for more information.

Thu., Sept. 4, 7:30 p.m.; Fri., Sept. 5, 7:30 & 9:45 p.m.; Sat., Sept. 6, 7 & 9:30 p.m.; Sun., Sept. 7, 7 p.m., 2014
