Seen on Reno 911, The Man Show, Mad T. V., A& E's "Comedy On the Road", and several times on Nickelodeon! An 'unconventional' fellow by anybody's standards! Standup comic Phil Van Tee is a humorist, storyteller, folk artist, and award winning comedy magician all rolled into one. A graduate of the Ringling Brothers Clown College, Phil is the 6' 8" Tall Teller of Tales. He was born in North Carolina, raised in Ohio and now hides out in the concrete mountains of L. A.
-------Phil is a master entertainer, hilarious--outrageous, charming, and completely unique! His style is very folksy. Picture a cross between Will Rogers and Jeff Foxworthy, with maybe a little Henny Youngman thrown in! - over 15,000 performances (no brag, just fact) all across the U. S., Canada & the Caribbean.
-----"The last act of the evening was something very special... a more versatile comedian could probably not be found anywhere. Phil Van Tee is possibly the best act U. S. F. has had so far!"

-----"Phil Van Tee's act is funnier than he is tall, and boy is he tall! We will have him back again as our casino music series grows - you can count on it!"

--------"Phil was one of my favorite comics when I headlined him in my comedy club in Colorado Springs. He was one of my favorite comics when I booked him on my Si-T. V. show, "The Latino Laugh Festival" and the sequel, "Inside Joke". He was one of my favorite comics when I put him in my Nickelodeon T.V. show, "Brothers Garcia". And he was one of my favorite comics when I put him in my movie, "Mysteries Of The Maya". You can bet there's lots more to follow!"

-----"From the moment I booked Phil for our event I felt as if I had found a new personal friend. His talent speaks for itself if you listen to his audio clips you will see what a truly talented gentle man he is. What you won't be able to tell from the clips is how personable and friendly he is. We had a group of about 60 physicians along with their spouses and children in attendance. Phil not only entertained the full audience with his range and style of jokes and musical quips but about an hour after the show, I found him poolside with the 17 year old son of one of my physicians. The teenager had gotten out his guitar and Phil was playing his banjo and they had a crowd of children gathered around. It warmed my heart to be able to find someone as personable as Phil to attend our conference and to watch the rapport he had with not only the adults but the youngsters as well. They say laughter is good for your soul- If that is true- the Phil Van Tee is good for your soul!! I highly recommend this entertainer!"

-----"Hey Phil...I just wanted to drop you a note of thanks. It was very risky of me to take a chance on a stranger, but I am so glad I did. You were fabulous and everyone loved you. I just felt in my heart that you were just what we were looking for...and you were. All my friends are still talking about what a great time they had. I even passed on your name and e-mail to a friend at our school ~ her name is -----------. I hope she contacts you. :) Everyone also loved that you hung out...you're a very cool guy. Hope we can do business again. Thanks again and take care."

-----"I was a little skeptical hiring a comedian over the internet, but after some e-mail communication and a couple of phone conversations, I was satisfied with hiring Phil Van Tee. Phil is truly a professional and accommodating in every way. I know from experience that speaking in a church requires that a person be sensitive to topics of conversation. Phil was great! He engaged the men at our (Father's Day) event and kept them laughing throughout his set. On a personal level, I was able to spend time with Phil and as a man, he cares about people and has a heartfelt concern about his performances and he takes his profession very seriously. Phil also performed on Saturday morning for a group of kids from a local foster shelter. He was personable, interactive and put on a great show for the kids. If you are looking for a comic with whom you will truly get what you pay for and you won't have to be concerned with his material being offensive in any way.......Hire Phil Van Tee!"
