Description

Most easily recognized by his childlike, high-pitched delivery, Emo Philips is truly a stand-out when it comes to stand-up. Hailing from Chicago, Philips began his career in the 1970s and has developed an onstage persona that is unlike anything else on the scene. Pairing witty one-liners with more obscure, multi-level punchlines, his style recalls the work of the late Andy Kaufman in its absurdist bent. Philips has been lauded by the likes of Jay Leno and "Weird Al" Yankovic as a master of his craft. There must be something to the acclaim, as the man's been at it for 40 years. He performs through Oct. 7.
