A PROFESSIONAL AUDIENCE MEMBER


Tonight Show host Jack Paar with Miss Miller.

Lillian Dorothy Miller better known as Miss Miller, was a regular
audience member of various television variety shows from the
1950s to the 1980s. She had a daytime job as a government
typist, but retired in 1958 due to eye trouble. She began her
audience career with radio programs in 1940.

Miller was first a regular audience member of The Tonight Show
throughout Steve Allen‘s and Jack Paar‘s tenures as host. When
Paar left Tonight to start his prime-time Jack Paar Program in
1962, Miss Miller then became a regular on that program, as well
as on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and The Merv
Griffin
Show.
