Old Jan 14th, 2007, 04:21 AM        Larry Miller - Just Words
This guy was always one of my favorite stand-up comedians. He totally stood out from the rest of the pack, telling long stories with great delivery. Just recently, they've been airing his old comedy special "Just Words" and I was reminded of just how incredibly good he was. I'm glad he's been successful in acting, but I'd love it if he went back to doing stand-up again. I guess I just wish I had the chance to see him perform live once. On the plus side, his new book has a 3-cd audio version you can buy, so that's the closest thing to him just releasing a comedy album you can get.

I've never seen or heard his stand up but i like him in the movies he did, even if the movie sucked, like the Nutty Professor remake

I saw Just Words on demand and thought it was one of the best stand-up performances I saw. Sad to say, I really didn't recognize him until I saw the Aristocrats, except I had known a lot of his work.

Wow, I'm surprised it's even available on On Demand. I need to get a copy of it on DVD. "You have nooo idea... the difference in sex drive between a man and woman is like the difference between shooting a bullet and throwing it."

Also, for anybody who wants to hear one of his more popular routines, take a listen to this:

Just to be sure, Just Words is the one with the ski story, right?

And I totally didn't know he was on the Dilbert show.

I'm not a follower of the guy but I did catch this on cable recently and didn't turn the channel. It was good but I don't remember seeing any of his other routines.

That's the one I saw so I imagine it's what we are talking about here.
