Comedian Emo Phillips: 'Memba Him?!

In the '80s, standup comedian Emo Phillips became famous for his eccentric voice and child-like delivery. Guess what he looks like now!

Emo Phillips is one of the brightest bulbs on the planet. His comedy writing is widely considered top level. He may be a bona fide genius. If you read anything he has written, including his jokes, you'll see what I mean. He's widely read and witty. Retard? Hardly.

No, I don't remember him. I am too young to remember a comedian from 80's. Hehehe. I am able to remember some people from other decades, but just the most famous or others who called my attention for some mysterious cause. Hehehe.

Slow news day, Harvey?

This guy wasn't funny 25 years ago. I will give him a nod for his performance in Weird Al's UHF, though.

Seriously... it's one thing to look like a retard while you're in character... which can be funny, if funny's what you're looking for. But to look and act like a retard in your personal life, that's a whole other story... Dude looks like a retard, acts like a retard, so why not be a retard both on and off stage if that's what gets you the attention you're after. Sad!

Actually, I met him after one of his stand-up shows once. The voice is just part of his act - he's really very well-spoken and intelligent.

Him and Leaping Lanny Popov, and maybe Randy Savage(?)
All namesakes of fame to my old high school.
