The Real Emo

Among my unusual encounters with famous comedians, one of the most awkward was with the brilliant Emo Philips . Awhile ago I caught his strange act. He did an encore, but I had to go to the bathroom badly. I held it in just long enough to catch the curtain call and then I rushed to the bathroom. I was at the urinal and none other than Emo pulls up to the urinal next to me. He looked over, kind of embarrassed, and said “Must be the asparagus.”

    I liked him in “home movies” the cartoon.
    No-so-much as a stand-up

    Reminds me of the time I was in the bathroom at the intermission of Rent when it opened in 1996. Neil Young was a urinal away and I couldn’t think of a non music topic to chatter about. In hindsight I should have brought up that he was a windsurfer. Oh well!
