In high school, a creative writing teacher dubbed George Miller the leading class humorist. After high school George started playing pool. He became one of the top twenty money players in the Seattle area. By his own admission he was never a great player, but if he watched whom he played he could eke out a meager living, which he did for long periods of time in Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Georges mom always hated him being a pool hustler. So, when he started doing stand up comedy at the famous Comedy Store in Hollywood, he told her lie didnt think he would be playing pool much anymore.
She said "Oh, what are you going to be doing?"
He said "Ill be telling dirty stories to drunk people in dark rooms."
She said "Oh, thats so much better."
This story is exaggerated. For one thing George doesnt tell dirty stories. Ninety nine per cent of his act is network t.v. clean. (he says he saves the filth for his personal life)
After working several years at the Comedy Store along side such people as David Letterman, Jay Leno, and Michael Keaton, George went on the Tonight Show and was a big hit. Johnny Carson called him "very bright and very funny". After his successful Tonight Show debut, T.V. Guide featured George in a four page article.
Many spots on all the talk and comedy/variety shows followed including over 100 combined appearances on the Tonight Show and David Letterman. He has been a frequent interview guest on dozens of local t.v. and radio talk shows. Hes also been interviewed by Larry King.
He then went on to play all the major comedy clubs including The Improvisation in Hollywood, Carolines in New York, Punchline in Atlanta, Comedy Underground in Seattle, The Ice House in Pasadena, Nicks in Boston, and The Laugh Factory. He also played many major universities as well as casinos like Harrahs in Atlantic City; Caesars Palace, The Dunes, Golden Nugget, The Hacienda, The Mirage, and The Riviera in Las Vegas; The Hilton, Flamingo Hilton, and Harolds in Reno; Caesars Tahoe, Sahara Tahoe, and Cal-Neva Lodge in Tahoe.
He has shared the stage with Tanya Tucker, Paul Anka, Tom Jones, Chuck Berry, Tony Orlando, Crystal Gayle, Joan Rivers, and Helen Reddy. He would list Jerry Van Dyke but he still owes George money.
The last few years George has done many corporate dates. Some times at these events he is billed as Dr. George Miller, one of this countrys top motivational speakers. Wearing a suit and tie, George comes out, and the audience expecting an inspirational talk, is delighted and surprised to hear George talk about how he hates his life.
Recently, George has been writing a full length feature film in which he hopes to star.
