Event

Comedian Phil Johnson
Being human is a constant struggle between defining ourselves as individuals and trying to fit in with "the group"...

Phil Johnson, who has appeared at the Sundance
Film Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival,
uses comedy and music to dissect that dilemma
in both his own life and others.

In pieces like "Vertical Eyebrows", "Gangsta Pooh",
and "State Hats" Phil discusses the challenges and
rewards of being different and proud of it. Though sometimes people misplace their self-worth into meaningless objects like in "Truck Nuts".

But we also have to be concerned with how we relate
to the thoughts and feelings of others around us. From dealing with new social issues ("Robots" and "Gay Children's Books") to keeping the relationship fire alive ("Bad Porno Sex" and "Geeks Don't Care").

Phil Johnson, like everyone else, sometimes gets it
and sometimes wonders what the heck people are thinking. On stage his 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.
