Henry Phillips has been seen performing his twisted songs and stories on Comedy Central, ABC’s ’Jimmy Kimmel Live’ and NBC’s ’Late Friday’. He can also be heard regularly on the Bob and Tom show, performing such songs as ’The Guitar Pill’ and ’She’s Talking Again’.
His nationally released CDs, fusing mellow folk-rock ballads with psychopathic lyrics have earned him mention in Billboard magazine’s ’Critic’s Choice’, as well as acclaim from the king of novelty music himself, Dr. Demento, who referred to Phillips as "The funniest young singer-songwriter to come our way in quite a while."
Also, his biographical comedy film "Punching the Clown", directed by Greg Viens, received the Audience award at Slamdance film festival '09, and is continuing a successful run on the festival circuit. www.henryphillips.com
Special Guest: Joe Schroeder
Ask Joe Schroeder where he gets his material and he’ll simply reply, “I live my material.” As one of the fastest rising comics in the Midwest, his show is a candid discussion on such topics as sex, dating, relationships, and life in general. With a unique brand of intelligent humor that gives him a broad appeal, he has entertained audiences of a thousand or more.
After beginning his career at open mic nights, he moved back to his hometown of Warsaw, Indiana to continue his study of the “Science of Comedy.” He quickly became a favorite at clubs and colleges throughout the Midwest, honing his craft while sharing the stage with comedy veterans Kevin Pollack, Tom Simmons, Jim Florentine, Dave Landau, and Jon Reep. A regular at the Mishawaka Funnybone, Joe has also brought his high energy and quick wit to the Tennessee Theatre, The Wagon Wheel Theatre, The Detroit International Comedy Festival, and is currently a contributing writer to Esquire magazine.
From the moment he first hits the stage until the final curtain call, audiences are enthralled with Joe’s lively and engaging relation of personal happenings, embarrassing situations, and everyday life gone terribly awry. With motion pictures "Bluegrass Run" and "Secret Lincoln" due out in 2010, be sure not to miss this fast rising star when you find him at a venue near you.
