Larry Miller Show

Larry Miller Show

United States

Larry tells stories from his own life, in the tradition of great American radio raconteurs like Jean Shepherd and Garrison Keilor. Miller's tales are smart without being stuffy or hostile, and uplifting without being naive. Join the party! It's time well spent! Larry Miller is best known for roles in Waiting For Guffman, Best in Show and 10 Things I Hate About You, as well as his standup comedy. Now he brings his sharp wit and genteel manner to his very own podcast.
