Personal life

Miller was born in Valley Stream, New York, on Long Island. He is Jewish. He has said that one of his grandmothers was from Latvia and one of his grandfathers was from Austria. Miller married television writer Eileen Conn in 1993. The couple have two children.

Acting career

His roles include the nasty doorman on Seinfeld and Walter Stratford in the movie 10 Things I Hate About You, as well as several characters in Christopher Guest's mockumentary movies. He has also appeared in Carry On Columbus, The Nutty Professor, Nutty Professor II: The Klumps, Max Keeble's Big Move, and Pretty Woman. He played Edwin Poole in the ABC dramedy Boston Legal. He is close friends with Jerry Seinfeld and auditioned for the part of George Costanza.

He played night-club owner Michael Dobson in two Law & Order episodes, first in the episode "Coma" and then later in "Encore". Miller appeared as himself in a third episode, "Smoke". He was also in 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter, where he played Tommy, Kyle's obnoxious father and Paul's colleague. He also played himself in a later episode of the same series.

Television writing

Miller served as a writer for the television shows Uncommon Sense (2005), Just Words (1992), and Pros & Cons (1999).

Commentary

From 2002 to 2004, Miller wrote a column for conservative magazine The Weekly Standard that usually ran once every two weeks. Since then, he has continued to contribute occasionally to the magazine. His subject matter has included politics as well as reminiscences about fellow entertainers, and anecdotes from his own life.

Two of the columns he wrote in 2002 served as the text for frequently-forwarded emails at the time, though in both cases his words were attributed to others. The first was his very first Weekly Standard column in January 2002, in which he mocked various anti-war platitudes of the time; the text was incorrectly attributed to retired Air Force general Richard E. Hawley. The second was an April 2002 column defending Israel in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which was attributed to fellow comedian Dennis Miller. Another email which also began to be forwarded in 2002, purporting to offer "George Carlin's Views on Aging", was derived in part from a stand-up routine that Larry Miller performed in the 1990s.

Miller began a weekly podcast on the Carolla Digital Network, This Week with Larry Miller, suspending it after falling and injuring his head severely in April 2012. After hospitalization and a coma, he said in January 2013 that he was convalescing. Miller resumed the podcast on January 9, 2013. In February 2015 the podcast was retitled The Larry Miller Show with direct distribution.
