PSU Silver Series invites you to Cocktails with Larry Miller Sept. 24 at the Silver Center

September 13th, 2011 by Adam

Plymouth, N.H.–Larry Miller says he finds comedy in his observation of the things that are annoying to all of us. Come hear what annoys Miller Sept. 24 at 8:30 p.m. when he brings his show, Cocktails with Larry Miller to Plymouth State University’s Hanaway Theatre at the Silver Center. Colleague Jerry Seinfeld says Larry Miller “is, was and will always be the funniest guy I know. I love this man.”

As one of Hollywood’s most recognizable faces, Miller has appeared in more than 50 films and numerous television shows. He began his career with a memorable cameo as the brown-nosing store manager in Pretty Woman, and has since gone on to delight audiences in some of the most unforgettable roles in such films as Best in Show, Waiting for Guffman, The Princess Diaries I and II and The Nutty Professor I and II.

Miller has made dozens of appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, and Real Time with Bill Maher. Viewers remember him as the vindictive doorman on Seinfeld, as Michael Dobson in two different Law & Order episodes, or as Edwin Poole in Boston Legal. Additionally, he was the writer for TV’s Uncommon Sense, Just Words and Pros & Cons.
He has also performed in 10 Things I Hate About You, Burn Notice, Monk, My Wife and Kids, and his own HBO comedy specials, and on Broadway in Neil Simon’s play, The Dinner Party.

On the Hanaway stage, Miller will share his perspective on marriage, children and drinking … and how any one can lead to the other two.

Miller combines his stand-up comedy, acting and musical talents to create a fresh and funny theatrical experience based on his book, Spoiled Rotten America.

Describing his experience with Cocktails with Larry Miller, one critic said, “His tone was so conversational and benign, only punctuated with gut-busting punch lines.”

Tickets for Miller’s PSU appearance are $35-23 for adults, $33-23 for seniors and $25-15 for youth at the Silver Center Box Office, (603) 535-2787 or (800) 779-3869. Online tickets sales are at silver.plymouth.edu.
