Get ‘ridiculous’: ‘Silicon Valley’s TJ Miller plans stand-up tour leading up to HBO special

tj miller comedy tour special silicon valley
T.J. Miller has work lined up outside the bounds of Silicon Valley. The comedian has announced that he’ll be hitting the road this summer for a new stand-up tour. The Meticulously Ridiculous Tour begins August 18 and includes 20 stops, reports Deadline. The final tour stop will bring him to Denver, where he will tape an hourlong HBO special produced by Funny or Die.

The Silicon Valley actor will bring his comedic chops to cities across the United States, including Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Minneapolis, Seattle, and more. As the title implies, fans can expect the ridiculous when Miller takes the stage. He won’t be the only entertainer in the show, though. His wife, Kate Miller, a performer and mixed-media artist, and comedian Nick Vatterott will be part of the tour as well.

Miller is well known for starring in HBO’s critically acclaimed comedy series Silicon Valley, which centers on a group of startup founders in the tech hotbed. He has also made audiences laugh as Weasel in Marvel’s recent hit Deadpool, in which he starred alongside Ryan Reynolds, not to mention films like Big Hero 6, How to Train Your Dragon, and Transformers: Age of Extinction. His tour is just one of several upcoming projects, including playing the lead in Emojimovie: Express Yourself and ongoing work on Silicon Valley, which has been renewed for a fourth season.

The comedian, who is a Second City alum, has toured nationally in the past and previously made an hourlong stand-up special for Comedy Central. Called No Real Reason, the special aired in late 2011. He also currently hosts the podcast Cashing in with T.J. Miller.

Miller’s tour will be about a month long, running from August 18 to September 16.

Metroid should be Nintendo’s next hit adaptation after The Super Mario Bros. Movie
Samus Aran in the Power Suit with the EMMI robots behind her.

Across film and TV, video game adaptations are becoming increasingly prominent, and the commercial success of The Super Mario Bros. Movie should pave the way for Metroid's time in the sun. Though The Super Mario Bros. Movie is a bit of a superficial adventure, the movie's colorful visuals and reminiscent fun of the source material are more than enough to draw massive crowds.

That box office success should also be a testament to the viability of gaming adaptations in general, and the recent resurgence of Metroid should ride its tailwinds. The latter's recent critical and commercial acclaim from Dread and Prime Remastered for the Switch combined with the storytelling potential of the TV medium could take the Nintendo brand in bold new directions.
