Comedian TJ Miller cut his teeth at Second City and iO before heading to Los Angeles, where he has appeared in a few notable films (Cloverfield, She's Out of Your League) and is a regular on "Chelsea Lately." Next week Comedy Central will premiere Miller's one-hour stand-up special, "TJ Miller: No Real Reason" on Saturday, Nov. 12 at 10 p.m. CT. We caught Miller when he returned to his old stomping grounds the Chicago Underground Comedy showcase in September to celebrate the release of his comedy rap album, the 41-track (yes 41) The Extended Play EP.

Above is a video of Miller's recent appearance on Conan. He doesn't exactly tackle cutting edge comedy topics, but who doesn't love a well executed airplane bit?
