From 2014 to 2017, he starred as Erlich Bachman in the HBO sitcom Silicon Valley for which he won the Critics' Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series in 2015. In 2016, he starred in the movie Search Party with Adam Pally and the movie Office Christmas Party. On June 17, 2017, HBO premiered his hour-long stand-up special, T.J. Miller: Meticulously Ridiculous, which was filmed in Miller's native Denver at the end of his 2016 Meticulously Ridiculous Tour. In October 2017, Miller began his "Touring In Perpetuity Tour", a self described "One Man Philosophy Circus." In 2018, he played the role of I-R0K in the film Ready Player One, directed by Steven Spielberg.
