It was worth the cost and TJ Miller was funny for our performance; however, each show is unique and requires the audience’s participation to make the show worth while. Entertaining for an evening, but not bucket list, tell your grandkids in twenty years sort of ordeal.
Every show of his is different and very funny! I saw the boogerman in Phoenix in July. Then again in Tucson in December. Great audience interaction.
Something was missing, and it made me wonder if he cut his material short for some reason. It started with an opener doing maybe 10-15 minutes who was pretty great. Then two bigger named comedians performing at the next show did maybe 5 minutes each. I wasn't sure if this was planned or opportunistically added to fill out time. They were great, but unexpected since this was a short time slot. TJ Miller came on and did some slapstick stuff. He tried to weave this pseudo-intellectual joke throughout the set, but it didn't really go anywhere. Then he analyzed Duck Tales for like 20 minutes. The fact that this was the best part of the set was pretty disappointing. I don't think I would pay to see him again. I'm not too upset because the tickets weren't too expensive, but honestly I was expecting more and a tighter performance. Maybe it was just a bad night for him.
Lots of Laughs
TJ's show at the Wilbur was a good time as he turned in a solid performance. Reading the other reviews I see a lot of negativity regarding the length of the act, as well as its content. As for the length of the act, this was a 7 o'clock show booked back to back with a 9:45 show. Considering that after TJ's show ended the Wilbur staff had to get everybody out and the theatre ready for the 9:45 show, TJ's set ending at 8:45 makes a sense. As for the content, I thought it was solid across the board. Made me smile and laugh, and that is why I'm a fan and went to see the show. Also, very cool to have a cameo by Ron Funches (the 9:45 headliner) for a few minutes before TJ came on. In summary, the show was "race cars, lasers, aeroplanes...it's a duckblur". Thanks TJ!
It was alright
I've never seen him live before, so I was excited to see his stand up based on This is Not Happening and specials. However, I wasn't that impressed. It was more so an act and acting silly. Certainly funny, but I enjoyed the openers a whole lot more. He had the two guys performing the late show go before him which I really respect him for. When I pay that much, I expect much more so I won't go see him again.
Confusing and not funny
I didn't really know what to expect from this show, but I left confused and disappointed. The whole show felt rushed, improvised, and just bland. T.J. was just not funny, he just seemed bored and ready to leave the stage.
Energetic, clever, just hilarious stuff! Definitely go see him whenever possible.
Tj was quite funny at the start. Then started bringing up very serious societal topics and was unable to bring the humor back into the show. The spectators tried but no avail... He lost momentum. Disappointing appearance and it was very short. Wanted more material than just the DuckTales song.
Too much slapstick
I had high hopes for this show but left disappointed. A lot of physical comedy/slapstick which felt forced especially when he also tries to be very cerebral in certain parts of the show (i.e. a bit about nihilism and the deification of time). There was also an undercurrent of anger throughout his performance. We see a LOT of comedy shows and are open to different types of comedy, but I only laughed a few times during his set and was on the fence about leaving early. Too bad because as an actor I have appreciated his work, but I would not see his stand-up again.
The perfect word to describe this was disappointing. TJ just wasn't that funny. It is a shame because I am a big fan of Silicon Valley and Ehrlich Bachman so I was expecting a few laughs. His "Duck Tales" bit wasn't that funny and took up 20 mins out of his 40 mins performance. I thought his openers were funnier than he was
ADRIAN BOHM PRESENTS
T.J. MILLER – THE NONSENSE TOUR
T.J. MILLER is on his way to Australia for his first time with his hilarious The Nonsense Tour. Miller is one of the most sought after comedians in the comedy world, but not in the drama world, or the finance world. Named one of Variety’s “Top 10 Comics to Watch,” and EW's “Next Big Things in Comedy”, you may recognize his non-animated face and body from his roles in Deadpool, Transformers 4, and Mike Judge’s HBO comedy series Silicon Valley. His podcast "Cashing in with T.J. Miller" is listened to by 12 and 1⁄2 people, and he is a nationally touring standup artist, crisscrossing the country listening to Kris Kross (he's also done shows in the U.K. and Puerto Rico (Puerto Rico did not go well)).
He has been performing his absurdist observational stand-up act for over 10 years, and recorded his Comedy Central stand-up special T.J. Miller: No Real Person and hip-hop/pop/folk music album "The Extended Play E.P." He hosted Comedy Central’s Mash-Up, a mashup of standup, sketches and visualizations, and has appeared on Chelsea Lately more than most women his height. He got his start touring with Second City in Chicago and improvising with Annoyance Theater, iO, and managers at electronics stores asking why he was late and smelled like gin.
Miller has been in a number of major studio films including She’s Out of My League, Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World, Rock of Ages, Our Idiot Brother, Yogi Bear 3D, Get Him To The Greek, How To Train Your Dragon, and Christmas Party. He resides in Hollywood, California, where he struggles to find meaning in an uncertain world. He is a comedian.
