Henry Phillips (born November 14, 1969) is a musical comedian from Los Angeles known for his Comedy Central Presents special, his songs for two award-winning musicals, Blake: the Musical and Chips, and for co-writing and starring in the semi-autobiographical movie Punching the Clown which won several awards, most notably the Audience Award at the Slamdance Film Festival and is critically acclaimed, currently holding an 86% fresh rating on the review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes. His series of satirical YouTube cooking videos called "Henry's Kitchen," in which he tries and fails to cook food, make friends, and impress women, was described by Sarah Silverman as "the best cooking show ever", and his other web series "You and Your Fu*king Coffee" was produced by Jash and features well-known guest stars including Mike Judge and Ashley Johnson. He has appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Bob and Tom, The Dr. Demento Radio Show, and the podcasts WTF with Marc Maron, and Comedy Bang! Bang! In 2014 he recorded his first one hour comedy special, at Hollywood's The Lyric Theater. In 2016, he co-wrote and starred in Punching Henry, a sequel to Punching the Clown.

Style

Phillips typically portrays a character that is a classic loser, hapless with women, and unsuccessful in show business. His musical style is frequently in ballad form where the sincerity of the musical style contrasts with the comically sad/angry/absurd lyrics. He has also said he wouldn't be doing stand-up if not for Doug Stanhope, who got him started on the road (Phillips appears on Doug Stanhope's 2000 album Something to Take the Edge Off).
