Phil Palisoul has made his living as a comedian for over 20 years. In that time, he’s been all over the world, performing in such far flung places as Hong Kong, China, Juno, Alaska and Billings, Montana. He recently toured Afghanistan to perform for the troops with Comics on Duty. He’s worked with and won the respect of some of the biggest names in comedy, like Jerry Seinfeld, Drew Carey and George Lopez. His list of corporate clients is long and illustrious.
Phil has made dozens of TV appearances, including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, two seasons of Last Comic Standing and Comedy Central’s Premium Blend. In the summer of 2013, Phil took first place at The Great American Comedy Festival, in Johnny Carson’s hometown of Norfolk, Nebraska.
Having performed for countless clubs, corporations and cruise ships, Phil is comfortable in any venue. From funky barrooms to luxury theaters, small rooms, big rooms, no room at all – Phil’s been there/done that – and done it well. Alongside his successful standup career, Phil worked as a TV writer for a number of years in LA. He wrote for shows on every major network, as well as Comedy Central.
Happily back in Denver, CO, Phil divides his time between traveling a lot, staying home as much as he can, playing with his dog, Ursa, his cat, Darla, and his wife, Nora.
