He’s a master of zany intelligence providing a show with sharp unexpected turns, sneak attack jokes, and hilarious songs, all delivered from the viewpoint of a guy who happily grew up in the deeply multi-everything community of the San Francisco Bay Area. Phil has performed at the Sundance Film Festival, Edinburgh Festival, on Sirius/XM, Bob and Tom Radio, and on Amazon Prime. He’s also released multiple comedy specials and albums filled with his colorful, tightly written comedy.
