Phil Davidson mines his comedy from the absurdities of everyday life, calling attention to society’s shortcomings as well as his own. A former reporter and political hack, Phil decided to go with a slightly less punishing vocation and started doing comedy at a Vietnamese coffee shop in Burlington, Vt. He quickly rose through the ranks of the cutthroat Vermont comedy scene and won the 2013 Funniest Comic in Vermont Contest. Since then he’s been selected to perform in numerous comedy festivals and has taken the stage in bars, theaters and clubs in Chicago, NYC, LA and throughout the country. He's written for adultswim.com, Playboy's The Smoking Jacket, Splitsider and other publications.
