“Who wants reality? I can get that for free. That’s the whole point. I kind of have to.”


What happens when human folly runs face-first into apocalypse? Stolen placentas, political genies, sad puppies, Elder Gods, cryogenically frozen comedians…welcome to this year’s grotesque anthology of comic horror, with no mention whatsoever of a certain ancient Greek philosopher.


WARNING: contains profanity, gunshots, graphic descriptions of violent and sexual acts, and a wildly inappropriate spirit of levity.

His solo performances have won acclaim from Minneapolis to Atlanta, New York to LA — even as far as Melbourne, Australia. He was the co-founder of the Rockstar Storytellers (a supergroup of bestselling Twin Cities spoken-word artists), founder and producer of the touring theatre troupe Maximum Verbosity, and founder and host of the country’s only open-mic dedicated to speculative fiction, The Not-So-Silent Planet, and its associated podcast. He has published two humor collections, Indecision Now! and Get Thee Behind Me, Santa.




“phillip performs all these stories with his usual rapid-fire aplomb, torrents of words spilling out of his mouth till the audience is almost dizzy from the input of so much language into their brains.  But what a treat to be asked to think, and think quickly, about how you feel about any of the characters in these situations.  low doesn’t spoonfeed the audience a particular point of view as he recounts the stories.  You have to make up your own mind as to how off-kilter you think some of these people’s moral centers are and who, if anyone, you’re rooting for in these scenarios.”
