"His arsenal of catchy tunes and deadpan delivery annihilates relationships, political correctness and pop culture." Los Angeles Times
"Phillips has a sharp eye for absurdities and petty degradations" The New Yorker
American comedian Henry Phillips will make his UK debut supporting Doug Stanhope on his 37-date, longest ever UK tour.
Opening on Tuesday March 6 in Bolton, the tour will end with Doug’s return to HMV Hammersmith Apollo, where he played his biggest eversold-out gig in 2011.
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 morning and satellite radio, 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 Moby, who refers to Phillips as "Disconcertingly Funny".
His biographical comedy film, "Punching the Clown", received the Audience award at the 2009 Slamdance Film Festival.
Doug Stanhope has named his dog Henry Phillips.
