Emo Philips fans may be a breed apart, but even those who avoid idolizing peculiarly specialized comedians will be convulsed by this concert tape. Philips' weirdness is obviously cherished by his college audience herein, making it very difficult for even the most stone-faced non-fan to resist succumbing to laughter. Despite his Man From Mars demeanor, Emo is one of the most harmless comedians on earth, scrupulously working "clean" in his act. His essential strangeness is funny enough that he doesn't need to gild the lily with profanity. If you don't relish becoming a little "twisted" yourself by Emo Phillip's own brand of logic, perhaps you should skip this one: but you won't, will you?
