Phil Johnson is a man who gets mistaken for a woman, but only by those not paying attention. That revelation kicks off a battle for self-awareness where comedy and music are the weapons of choice. It's a battle that has taken Phil to such esteemed festivals as the Edinburgh Fringe and Sundance Film Festivals and the Top 8 Finals of the World Series of Comedy.

"I've always been the guy who isn't quite what people expect," says Phil. Using that experience, Phil pokes holes in the medical marijuana argument, discusses being a white guy at a hip hop show (and the innocent gestures that can get him in trouble), and reveals why Hawaii isn't the paradise we think it is.

From Shakespearean bees to redneck vampires to anthropomorphic cell phones with weight issues, Phil Johnson fills the stage with quirky characters that combine social satire with absurdist flights of fancy. Then the guitar comes out and kicks the show into an even higher gear with songs about the bright future (and dark past) of babies and what he would do if he woke up one morning as an actual woman.

On stage, Phil's playful humor and likeable, endearing manner allow him to shake things up without antagonizing the audience. In the end we can only be who we are, try to understand others, and hope they understand us.

A note from Phil…

I take my role as an entertainer seriously, just as you take your task of finding entertainment seriously. That means two things… 1) I'm going to make your audience laugh until their cheeks hurt and 2) I'm not going to feed them the same old tired jokes and topics the other thousand comedians have used. We'll talk about how we present ourselves to the world, interact with one another, and either make the world a little better or leave a trail of damage in our wake.

If you need the show to be clean, I'll happily make it so. If you have a crowd that wants to loosen their ties and have some edgier fun, I'm ready to take them on a ride. I'm never gratuitously dirty or derogatory.

I perform all over the country at clubs, private events, colleges, military bases, and festivals. My combination of stand-up comedy and comedy music is a proven formula in my own shows, and similar to performers like Rodney Carrington, Stephen Lynch, and Flight of the Conchords.

Let's not just make your event good... Let's make it great, interesting, and memorable.
