T.J. Miller downs gin, says he regrets Silicon Valley exit

T.J. Miller made his return to the stage over the weekend, marking the first time he has performed stand-up since he was accused of violently sexually assaulting a woman back in December.

The Colorado-native appeared at the Vilar Performing Arts Center in Denver on Friday and then headed to posher parts for a gig as part of the Aspen Laugh Festival on Monday.

In that second performance Miller took some time to discuss the allegations that were made against him, reflecting on the past few weeks by stating: 'Have you ever had a nightmare that's better than your real life? That happened to me recently for like a month.'

Miller's worse-than-a-nightmare existence began when he was accused of beating and sexually assaulting a woman in college, with the alleged victim telling The Daily Beast that he punched her in the face during sex and raped her with a beer bottle.

The comedian and his wife of three years, actress Kate Gorney, both firmly denied the woman's allegations at the time. 

Miller's troubles then grew worse when transgender writer Danielle Solzman shared a transphobic and expletive-laden email that was sent to her by the comedian, who wrote: 'You're not a transgender, you're not a tranny — your [sic] a f*****g a*****e daniel.'

On Monday, Miller did not address those allegations beyond his 'nightmare' comment, but did express his remorse over quitting the HBO series Silicon Valley.

At the time that he left the show he was being inundated with film offers, which have dried up of recent.

Also drying up earlier this month was Miller's role as the voice of a booger in Mucinex commercials, with the company choosing to replace him in their Super Bowl spot.
