Introduction: Let's make your event one to remember with a combination of well-written, hilarious standup 🤣 and original comedy music that you'll still be singing the next day. 🎶 It's like getting two acts for one! In-Person and Online events available. Introduction: I'm a comedian with an intelligent and silly sense of humor. (Think Ralphie May, Eddie Izzard, Jackie Kashian, Christopher Titus, Stephen Lynch, etc.) Can work clean if you need or get a little edgy if it's appropriate for your crowd. I can also include custom material for your event if you'd like. My show doesn't feature much crowd work, "roasting the audience", or the like. It sometimes happens organically, but I don't build it into the show. I've been making people laugh professionally and touring the country since 2004. You can see and hear my work on Sirius/XM Radio, Spotify, Amazon Prime, Apple Music, and more. COVID Stuff: I offer both in-person and online events. Fully vaccinated. Outdoor or indoor events are fine. I don't generally wear a mask while performing, but can if you want me to. I'll have a mask on for all the "offstage" parts of the event. *Please note - my minimum performance fee is $500, so keep that in mind when reaching out for a quote* Important tips for having a successful comedy show at your event: 1. Make sure everyone knows there's going to be a comedy show. People who expect a comedy show are in the right state of mind for it and will have a great time. People who are expecting to spend an evening eating and chatting with friends and then have to flip into "listen to this guy tell jokes" mode won't have a great time. And I want to make sure everyone has a great time! 😁 If it's a surprise party for a guest of honor, you can keep it a surprise for them. But everyone else should know there will be a comedy show. 2. Kids and standup comedy don't mix very well. Even when the material is clean enough for kids, it's still a bunch of talk about "grown up stuff" that won't interest them very much. You might move them into another space with things for them to do during the show - maybe with an adult to watch them who doesn't like comedy (perish the thought!). Of course there are kids who have exhibited a love for standup - I was that kid... - And they're welcome at the show, of course. 3. Plan to have the comedy show at a different time than eating (dinner, etc.) Why? Laughing + Eating = Choking. A great time for the show is between the main meal and dessert. After dessert works too. Contact me today for a quote! I can't wait to help make your next event one to remember 🙂

We feel so lucky to had Phil at my husband’s birthday party! Everyone had a great time laughing during his hilarious show. Phil also customized the show for the audience with a short notice. I could tell Phil has lots of experience reading the audience and adapt the speech on the fly. And to top it all, he is a great musician. He played his guitar like a rockstar! I’d hire Phil again in a heartbeat
