Rick Miller swaps the Simpsons and Shakespeare for baby boomers (Preview)
Rick Miller had just graduated from McGill University in Montreal with a degree in architecture.

He played Murderer No. 2, for free.
“My mother thought I was absolutely insane,” he says. Neither her nor Miller knew it at the time, but it was the inauspicious beginning of a long and storied career. Miller would go on to become a successful playwright, director, performer, voice actor, comedian and TV host. Entertainment Weekly even named him “one of the 100 most creative people alive today.”
