Cambridge graduate BEN MILLER (Bough) is best known as half of the
comedy duo Armstrong and Miller, partnering with Xander Armstrong. The pair
first appeared as regulars on British television's ITV's Saturday Live, and
their eponymously named sketch show ran for four series, the first on the
Paramount Comedy Channel and the last three on Channel Four. On television,
Miller has also played leading roles in the ITV comedy/drama Passion Killers,
the ITV thriller The Blind Date and the Scottish BAFTA-winning comedy/drama
series Coming Soon.
Miller began his career with the British theatrical troupe Cambridge
Footlights, appearing in the 1990 Tour Show Absurd Persons Plural and directing
the 1991 Tour Show Cambridge Underground. He has made many appearances at the
Edinburgh Festival; in 1992, his one-man show, Gone With Noakes (about the life
of Blue Peter presenter John Noakes) won a Perrier Pick of the Fringe, and in
1996 he and Alexander Armstrong were Perrier Award nominees at the Festival for
their sketch show The Quality Shag.
More recently, Miller has concentrated on film roles. Making his film debut
as debauched aristocrat Lord Dixon in Jake Scott's Plunkett and Macleane,
Miller has since gone on to play Thai-boxing male model Johnny Two-Dogs in There's
Only One Jimmy Grimble, an obstructive hotel manager in Jez Butterworth's Birthday
Girl and the anally retentive computer hacker Colin in John Duigan's The
Parole Officer. Most recently, he appeared with Michael Caine in Conor
McPherson's The Actors and with Greta Scacchi in Guy Jenkins' Jeffrey
Archer biopic, The Truth.
