Emo Philips' brilliantly absurd jokes and deadpan falsetto have made him one of the most unique stand-up comics working today. Described by Jay Leno as "the best joke writer in America," he's inspired a generation of one-liner comics, but there's still nobody quite like him. He was named one of the 100 greatest stand-ups of all time by Britain's Channel 4. "Weird Al" Yankovic (who cast Philips in his movie "UHF" and TV's "The Weird Al Show") has called him "the funniest guy in the world." His dozens of TV stand-up appearances include the "Late Show With David Letterman", "Late Night with Conan O'Brien", his own HBO special and more. See him at the Punch Line Sacramento.
