    I love his storytelling and sound affects. It might even be funnier without video, because I'm just imagining everything that's happening to him and it's so relateable and realistic.

    The thing about Larry Miller is it's all in the body language, the expression, the delivery. The material is not actually that funny but he is a funny guy.

    He is the master of long-form narrative comedy story telling.

    I don’t do rollercoasters at all. I mean ANY rollercoaster. My very first time was at Euro Disney where a group of my closest bestest friends told me to go with them on one called Space Mountain which they said wS thrilling but not going to frighten me to near death. I made the mistake of believing them. We’re not friends anymore. Not for that but for similarly underhanded things . . .

    Yes, he's brilliant and this is one of his best bits. He was Great on Law & Order in a dramatic role. But my favorite film role of his is in A Mighty Wind. The look of pleasure on his character's face as Jennifer Coolidge's character compliments him by saying "It's like we only have one brain between us" is priceless.

    First time I went skiing, I got lost. XC skiers were passing me. I finally hiked to a lodge and I was so hungry I ate the dregs of someone's soup who had finished and presumably went back to skiing. The second time was better.

    I haven't skied since I was a teenager. The list of injuries includes a broken nose, two cracked ribs, a broken arm and a twisted knee. Now that I think of it, given that I am in my mid-thirties and have only now kicked my pain killer addiction; maybe I sholdn't ski again.

    So accurate! Every year I run a school ski trip and every year more than one student comes back to the bus with a story very similar. This year I saw a women who forgot to get off at the top or maybe she tried and then had second thoughts because when the chair stopped and she was now facing downhill she only had one ski on. …. maybe she too forgot to lift her tips up! I wish he had added a bit on putting on lift tickets. A bus load of kids trying to put a wire one on is hysterical.

    @Kingdom007Hearts Excellent! Just pop "Larry Miller Just Words" into the search box. World needs to hear this, and they should listen to the Just Words part first.
