CRIME DRAMAS SET IN MIAMI
Miami Vice, as a game show contestant (one of the three biggest roles in the first eleventh of the show.) Also in my episode: Phil Collins, Kyra Sedgwick, and Don Johnson (of "Nash Bridges" fame.) Photos here.
I promise to post more credits the instant I finish sorting my bowling balls by shape.
Although my celluloid footprint is embarrassingly dainty, I’ve two cameos of which I am proud:
I play the debonair, yet Presbyterian, shop teacher in UHF (kindly click here to view me);
I play the Presbyterian, yet debonair, video store clerk in the original (feature film) version of Meet the Parents.

"The sensation of clicking on Emo’s bio was good. The sensation. Good. Like the bark of a Vermont maple warmed by the merry, merry New England sun, also warming me, also warming a squirrel, also warming a merry merry etc etc etc...."

Still all adjoined. Yay!

Hello! I am a comedian named Emo (nothing to do with "emo" music) Philips.
For photographs, drawings, articles, my coleslaw recipe, clips both video and audio, and an interview I did with myself, I humbly exhort you to visit EMO PHILIPS .COM
Incidentally, I don't remember adding the "Fast Train" video; I have no idea how it got there. (It is kind of fun, though.)
Who I'd like to meet:
Tony.., the American soldier in Iraq -- and budding comedian -- on whose arm this wonderfully flattering depiction of me has recently been tattooed... so I can show my appreciation by treating him to a refreshing, delicious bowl of coleslaw, which I'm sure -- if he is anything like me -- he dreams of every night, as mayonnaise is deadly in the desert.
Update: I finally got to meet Tony -- as well as his charming wife -- after my show at Atlanta's Laughing Skull Lounge. Yay! Yay with extra yay sauce!
Update to the update: I've only now just realized I forgot to treat him to the coleslaw. I hjate (Swedish for hate) myself.
Update to the update to the update: Realizing that we all make mistakes, and that no human is perfect, I have finally forgiven myself. Thanks, me!
Update to the update to the update to the update: I have just been re-booked into the Laughing Skull Lounge for the distended weekend of February 11 through 14, 2010. For more information (such as if Tony will be there again... I'll let you know the instant I know) please carefully scroll up to my "Upcoming Gigs" box.
Update to the update to the update to the update to the update: Tony was supposed to come to the show Saturday, but he, as well as everyone else in his company, got confined to barracks because of the actions of one naughty scalawag. The good news: I'm returning to the Laughing Skull February 10-13, 2011. I'm sure Tony and I will enjoy a hearty chuckle over the incident, if I am drinking again by then.
