About Phil

Phil started doing stand up in 2012 while living and attending college in San Luis Obispo, CA. One morning during summer break, he woke up drunk (which was not that uncommon even during the semester) and decided he was going to try stand-up. He followed through about 4 months later. Ironically enough, the first time he did stand-up he was sober. He enjoyed it so much he decided to continue doing it…stand-up, not being sober.

He has moved to different areas of California in pursuit of comedy and has lived in the Bay Area and L.A. He’s performed at comedy clubs up and down California such as Tommy T’s Comedy Club & Steakhouse, Flapper’s Comedy Club, and The World Famous Comedy Store.

He currently resides in Oxnard, CA where the rent is more affordable and the beach is nearby. It turns out he moved to L.A. just to live anywhere but there. He’s also still sober…most of the time.
