About Our Guests
Mike Phirman is incredibly uncomfortable writing about himself in the third person, so he is going to write his bio in the second person. Youre from San Luis Obispo, California. You attended UCLA where you received a degree in Philosophy. After you graduated, you sold your car and used the money to hitchhike across Europe. When you came back to America, you worked as a visual effects artist for movies and TV. (Dont tell anyone, but on one episode of C.S.I. in which the camera follows a spark that sets off a car bomb, if you play it frame-by-frame, the spark briefly spells out Hi Mom!) You performed in comedy clubs and colleges as part of a comedy music duo called Hard n Phirm. You confused a lot of people by singing about and drove past a lot of corn. You love folding laundry and were born without a sense of smell. In 2010, you made a comedy music album called The Very Last Songs I Will Ever Record (Part 1). You lost your mind when Weird Al Yankovic showed up to perform on one of the tracks. (Hes one of the heroes that its actually good to meet.) After you and your wife Dannah had two kids, you shifted gears slightly and started recording songs that you found yourself singing for (and at) your kids. You hope that these songs can be listened to in the car by a whole family without the parents wanting to find you and kill you. In 2018, you released an album of this music called Songs to Sing at Children. SiriusXMs channel 78 (Kids Place Live) has been extremely supportive and played most of your songs. You appreciate them very much. Most recently, you googled the words comedy musician bio what to write. You found nothing helpful.
Lexie Grace is an ambidextrous Black and Puerto Rican comedian and filmmaker based in Los Angeles.Raised by a pack of wild female comediennes, Lexie Grace has always been drawn to comedy. Its in her blood. With that said, Lexie takes comedy seriously. She has taken classes at UCB, Second City, Groundlings, and the Pack Theatre and most recently jumping into stand-up. A New York University graduate from the Tisch School of the Arts, Lexie focused on writing and directing. Lexie has written several comedy features, in addition to directing several shorts. A Billy Wilder devotee, she believes his quote, "If youre going to tell the truth, be funny, or they will kill you". She currently is watching lots of Korean Soaps, Mexican Telanovelas, and German Sitcoms.
Allie Goertz is a pop-culture obsessed musician and writer and acts as the current Editor at MAD Magazine. (It's just a place of business.) You may have seen her at Comic-Con, SF Sketchfest, IFC's 10 Comedy Musicians You Need To Know, or in her blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo in Arrested Development. For more information on Allie, you can listen to the Nerf Herder song, Allie Goertz.
