T.J. Miller is probably as equally recognized for being an actor as he is a comedian. But some of those high-profile gigs (as well as his assorted public controversies) may have overshadowed his stage set.

“People don’t have a good sense of humor when they’re in a position of authority,” he tells an audience before relating a story about taking his friends to a haunted house. “I wanted to pay by credit card, and (the cashier) said she needed to see some ID.”

Miller couldn’t find it and asked her to make an exception. She refused.

“Let me get this straight. You won’t let me pay for my friends to go into your establishment because I’m trying to pay with credit card and don’t have ID? You’re afraid I stole a credit card and headed straight for the haunted house? I just found a credit card. Should we go buy electronics? No, I want to get scared with my friends for 25 minutes.”

7:30 and 10 p.m. Friday, Feb. 28; 7 and 10 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 29. $25-$50. Liberty Funny Bone, 7518 Bales St., Liberty Township, liberty.funnybone.com.
