People come up to me and say, "Emo, do people really come up to you?"
If you haven't ever seen or heard comedian Emo Phillips, there's probably no way I can accurately describe him to you. He's quirky and peculiar and strange and geeky and very, very funny.
If your stand-up comedy tastes run out on the fringes as opposed to right down the middle of the mainstream, you'll probably want to give Emo a listen.

Here is that first album along with a recording of his legendary show at the Hasty Pudding Theater.
