Hot off of his roles in HBO's "Silicon Valley" and "Deadpool," T.J. Miller will be performing four shows this week in the Twin Cities.

On Wednesday, Aug. 31 he will be at The House of Comedy at the Mall of America.

The first show already sold out, but a second show was added at 9:45 on the same night.

On Thursday, Sept. 1 he will also be performing at The Women's Club in Minneapolis. The first showing is also sold out already, but the 9:30 showing still has tickets.

The oft-crass comedian and won the Critic's Choice Award in 2015 for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy for "Silicon Valley."

Other roles he is known for include Coverfield, She's Out of My League, the voice of Tuffnut in "How to Train Your Dragon" and Yogi Bear 3D (or as his bio states, "his greatest role to date.")

As an example, here is what appears to the only safe-for-work standup clip we could find which was all the way back in 2011:
