Phil studied improv at UCB New York under Shannon O'Neill, Tim Martin, Brandon Gardner, and Ryan Karels. He managed UCB East from its opening in 2011 to 2014. He co-hosted B.Y.O.T. at UCB East for two and a half years before bringing the show to the UCB Inner Sanctum. Phil now resides in Los Angeles and spends most of his time at UCB Sunset with a 20v brushless motor DeWalt drill in his left hand. Phil's been in numerous web videos and a few commercials as well as some print modeling (if you can believe that), all of which have inflated his self-esteem and improved his overall manners.
