Henry Phillips (Born November 14, 1969) is a musical comedian from LA known for his "Comedy Central Presents", his songs for two award-winning musicals, "Blake: the Musical" and "Chips", and for co-writing and starring in the semi-autobiographical movie "Punching the Clown" which won several awards, most notably the Audience Award at the "Slamdance Film Festival" and is critically acclaimed, currently holding an 86% fresh rating on the review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes. His series of satirical YouTube cooking videos called "Henry's Kitchen," in which he tries and fails to cook food, make friends, and impress women, was described by Sarah Silverman as "the best cooking show ever", and his other web series "You and Your Fu*king Coffee" was produced by Jash and features well-known guest stars including Mike Judge and Ashley Johnson. He has appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!", "Bob and Tom", "The Dr. Demento Radio Show", and the podcasts "WTF with Marc Maron", and "Comedy Bang Bang". In 2014 he recorded his first one hour comedy special, at Hollywood's The Lyric Theater.
A musical satirist in the tradition of Tom Lehrer, sardonic folkie Henry Phillips was born November 14, 1969.
As a teen he drew his primary musical inspiration from Billy Joel, penning heartfelt, sensitive songs of his own, but he eventually turned to more comic material, emerging as a popular attraction on the Los Angeles club circuit.
A regular at the famous L.A. comedy nightspot the Improv as well as a favorite of radio's Dr. Demento, Phillips self-released his debut album On the Shoulders of Freaks in 1996
Why Haven't I Heard from You
