Emo Phillips is without a doubt one of the best comedians of all time. He defined the one-line genre and continues to come through with hilarious new material and witty commentary. Go Emo!

More Information


In a survey commissioned by GQ Magazine, three of Emo Philips’ jokes have been judged by his peers to be among the top 75 of all time. He is a true original and his cult following considers him to be the father alternative comedy.

Emo Philips has grown up. The trademark pageboy haircut is gone and his ‘80s-era “overgrown child hovering between catatonia and wide-eyed wonder” has been given somewhat of an adult makeover. “I talk about being a mature citizen of the world now,” says Philips, during a break from a London Times photo shoot last week. “When I first cut my hair off I was nervous, but I got even bigger laughs than before,” he says, adding, "Now I’m glad I had the lice." Philips, whom Tonight Show host Jay Leno once called “the best joke writer in America,” is eager to state that his show is for everybody and not aimed at a specific demographic. “My act is very revolutionary and has always been for all ages,” he says, adding, “a very small percentage of every age.”
