Described by Jay Leno as "the best joke writer in America," and considered by many, including "Weird Al" Yankovic, as one of the funniest people on the planet, Emo Philips has performed over 6,000 times throughout the English-speaking world (including a multi-week run at the Playhouse Theater in London's West End). Since starting out at the age of twenty in Chicago in 1976, Emo has had award-winning comedy albums, several cable specials (including an hour-long one on HBO), and many appearances on both American and UK network television. Though he has appeared in films (most notably, as the table-saw demonstrator in UHF) and lent his distinctive voice to animated TV shows such as Dr. Katz and Home Movies, his first love--stand-up--remains his true one.
Once upon a time a Jesus freak (his mother) and a Green Beret (his father) fell in love, got married and during an act of recreational afternoon delight forgot to use protection. Nine months later a comedian was born. He was named Danny Bevins because the staff at Tampa General Hospital believed the name Dreamkiller Bevins was inappropriate. Since then he's been arrested, fined, fired, beaten up and excommunicated while being called a juvenile delinquent, soldier, flight attendant, patient, husband, father and lately "disturbingly hilarious".
