Emo Philips

Stand Up Comedy

Described by Jay Leno as "the best joke writer in America," and considered by many, including "Weird Al" Yankovic, as one of the funniest people on the planet, Emo Philips has performed over 6000 times, throughout the English-speaking world (including a multi-week run at the Playhouse Theater in London's West End.) Since starting out at the age of twenty back in 1976, Emo has had award-winning comedy albums, several cable specials and many appearances on network television. He has appeared in films (most notably, as the table-saw demonstrator in 'UHF') and has lent his distinctive voice to animated TV shows (such as 'Doctor Katz,' 'Slacker Cats' and 'Home Movies'), but his first love remains stand-up.
