TJ Miller is a comedian and actor. You’ve seen him in Silicon Valley, Deadpool, Ready Player One, and more. I kept asking him about his success. And how he got there. He told me to stop trying “manufacture” it. I laughed. He kept cracking jokes. He’ll make you laugh. And think. Because he studies a lot of philosophy. That’s where a lot of his comedy comes from.
