Emo Philips is one of the most underrated and hillarious performers in the History of Stand-Up. His Delivery and Performance is so unusual and his odd funny One-Liners are like a surreal Version of the serious approach of Steven Wright. His influence can also not be denied. Emo is just great!

Best forgotten comedian.  Truly original material and truly original delivery. 

“My brother say ‘hello’.  Thank God for speech therapy”.

Brilliant stuff.

The best joke writer of all time. His stage persona can wear thin but his jokes are some of the most clever in all of stand up. Even smart people can’t tell what the punchline is til’ it’s said.

His jokes are perfectly constructed, I love it when listening to him you hear his punchline and the audience is silent for a second or two, before laughing at the absurdity of it. He is wonderful at making you think you know what he is going to say before heading in a completely separate and surreal direction that still makes sense in the context he uses it in. Although I agree his delivery is weird and slightly repetetive, it shows that I can’t imagine him delivering the same material in any other fashion.

I think he is one of if not the best joke writer ever.  His character can get repetitive though.
