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.


That Turkey Thing  

Larry looks back at the things he is grateful for, including that potato thing and that turkey thing, also family. Then Larry talks about the holiday classic, "The Wizard of Oz" and recites "Sun and Shadow" by Oliver Wendell Holmes.

I Want Good Stuffing!  

Larry talks about why the best Thanksgiving meal is the one at midnight, when you're sneaking into the fridge for leftovers for the first time! And why the simplest recipes are the best and why no vegetables are allowed!

Larry's Tough Epiphany  

Larry faces a tough moment after a crazy week and takes stock in his life. And we have a first for TLMS, as The Poetry Corner and Magic Movie Moment both have the same title -- Splendor In The Grass. (Although one of them has a superfluous number of vowels in its spelling.) Tune in, drop out and don't step into a volcano.


Your Post-Election Antidote  

The dulcet tones of Larry Miller are the perfect antidote to soothe the nation's jangled nerves. Take a listen, if you're patriotic enough, bub! Will Larry's big election prediction be correct? Tune in and find out! Plus, more Millard Fillmore facts than you can shake a stick at. And Larry continues his unpopular defense of daylight savings time. Then we hear about the movie "Sullivan's Travels."

Anchovy Martinis?  

In defense of the maligned anchovy, Larry brainstorms the possibility of an anchovy martini!

Then Larry talks about the great Kubrick film, Dr. Strangelove.

Quote of the week: "Did I do that out loud? I did."

Producer: Colonel Jeff Fox

Baseball vs. Politics  

We talk about not talking about politics. And then something a lot less heated, the World Series. Chicago and Cleveland -- two cities you'll never have to say "Nominum Quid Geminus?" in.

Long Lost Coffee Commercials  

Have coffee TV commercials gone extinct? Shocking! Positively shocking. And what ever happened to the percolator? Larry ruminates about this and also why Oddjob had to schlep Goldfinger's golf clubs around in the hot southern sun, in a tuxedo, no less! It was an odd job for Oddjob.

Mother's Day on Milleronia! (Rebroadcast)  

What makes a great Mother's day gift? An ashtray made of matchsticks? Waking your Mom up early so she can witness the destruction of her kitchen? Yes and yes. Plus, Larry talks about the tear-jerker classic movie "I Remember Mama" and then he recites "A Little While" by Dante Gabriel Rossetti.

Quote of the week: "Right after that, they probably slice your head off."

Producer: Colonel Jeff Fox

How To (Not) Win The Lottery (Rebroadcast)  

Larry's not a big lottery ticket getter, but he got in on the big Powerball! And we hear a funny story about talking his Dad into buying a ticket. And Larry's wife's plans for a relaxing weekend at the beach come slightly unhinged and not even Larry's fancy Hugh Hefner pajamas can fix it.

Quote of the week: "You tell 'em."

Producer: Colonel Jeff Fox

Gee Whiz, It's Show Biz!  

Gee whiz becomes ho hum really fast, but not for Larry! He never gets tired of Hollywood. Hear about him horsing around on studio lots and the secret of dressing room mirrors!

Quote of the week: "Clarification: I was in a bar."

Key Larr-go  

Larry's morning routine is messed up by mainland politics, which are unlike the easy election machinations on Milleronia!

Quote of the week: "She's very nicely constructed. Bless her heart."

Producer: Colonel Jeff Fox

Oh, The Zoomanity!  

Larry ponders the magic of dogs. They are sweet and cuddly one minute, then scrapping brawlers the next. Also, the cuteness and lack of durability of dog toys is lost on Larry. Ever wonder what happens when a blonde speeder is pulled over by a blonde cop? And when is it too soon to think about going back to school? And congrats to Ollie Dungmeister, foreman of Volcano #2! He's retiring after 50 years of happy service!

Quote of the week: "People like that run for congress."
