Emo Philips

Birthdate: 7. February 1956

Emo Philips is an American stand-up comedian, actor, voice actor, writer and producer. His stand-up comedy persona makes use of paraprosdokians spoken in a wandering falsetto tone of voice. The confused, childlike delivery of his material produces the intended comic timing in a manner invoking the "wisdom of children" or the idiot savant.

„When I was a kid my parents used to tell me, "Emo, don't go near the cellar door!"“

—  Emo Philips

One day when they were away, I went up to the cellar door. And I pushed it and walked through and saw strange, wonderful things, things I had never seen before, like... trees. Grass. Flowers. The sun... that was nice... the sun..

„I'm not Catholic, but I gave up picking my belly button for lint.“
