Watch Ben Miller Movies Online
Half way through a PhD in Physics at Cambridge University, Ben met Alexander Armstrong (who was also studying there) in 1992. Instead of finishing his PhD, Ben chose to scrap science for comedy and started playing at 'The Comedy Club Footlights', Cambridge. After four years of touring pubs and underground comedy clubs the pair appeared on 'Saturday Night' as (now one of their most well known sketches) Euro-Rock duo 'Strijka'. 1996 saw the pair nominated for 'The Perrier Award' and were given their first commissioned series titled "Armstrong and Miller" (1997). Broadcast first on The Paramount Channel, which was then followed by three further series shown on Channel four (1997, 1999 & 2001). Ben and Alexander took 'The Armstrong and Miller show' on tour in November 2001 and did a 17 day back to back stint. The success of 'Armstrong and Miller' gave Ben a springboard to work on other projects. 'Passion Killers' and 'The Blind Date' are just some of the television films that have enabled Ben to go more mainstream and show he is capable of 'straight' acting as well as his cheeky-chappy side shown in 'The Armstrong and Miller Show.' Ben is not shy of the big screen either. August 2001 saw the release of Steve Coogan's: The Parole Officer (2001), in which Ben played small time criminal Colin and in 1999 he starred alongside Ray Winstone and Robert Carlyle in the comedy drama There's Only One Jimmy Grimble (2000). Most people may not recognise Ben as the voice of ITV's Digital Monkey who stars alongside fellow comedian Johnny Vegas in the infamous adverts, which has led to a wad of merchandise and a string of 15 minute programmes, yet to be shown. March 2002 sees Ben as a snotty hotel concierge in Jez Butterworth's film: Birthday Girl (2001). With further future projects lined up for 2002 - (including a six part series called "The Book Group" (2002), to be shown later on), only time will tell if the 35 year old will remain underground or leap out into the mainstream audience.Since 2003 Ben has continued his successful solo and comedy career. He played Rowan Atkinson's sidekick Bough in the 2003's blockbuster Johnny English. He went to Canada to film The Prince and Me in 2004. Mainstream audiences started to take notice in 2005 when The Worst Week of life aired in BBC1. It was so successful that a 2nd series, the following year was commissioned. In 2006 the BBC wanted a pilot comedy show from Ben and Alexander - they hadn't made a show together since The Armstrong and Miller Show (4th series) which aired in 2001. This pilot would lead to The Armstrong and Miller show not only coming back to television but to a more mainstream audience - being shown on BBC1 on Friday nights in 2007. After 14 years on the comedy circuit the pair were finally rewarded with a Bafta for best comedy programme in 2010. Four series later the duo decided to tour the UK again and played 62 shows up and down the country between September- November 2010.Summer of 2011 he released his directorial debut film 'Huge.'Winter of 2011 saw Ben in the Caribbean for the BBC's 'Death in Paradise'.His first book 'It's Not Rocket Science' is being released Summer 2012.Ben is currently in the theatre production of 'The Ladykillers' in the West End.
