Industry Quotes:

Anthony J Brown

Firstly, he goes about his comedy in a very professional manner and was very easy to work with - an all round lovely gent. Secondly, he had a brilliant gig and went down very well with a young crowd. A warm stage persona is matched up nicely with some lovely, well delivered, well written anecdotes, and Phillip seems more than capable of matching himself up to an audience. He played students on this occasion, but I imagine he'd be popular at a family gig given his style, but would do well in a weekend club.

a very good newer act. Likeable, funny and very professional. He did well with a mixed age crowd at Wivenhoe Funny Farm.

I booked Philip to play the Albert in East London last night - the club has a reputation for being friendly but somewhat "interactive". Philip was without doubt the act of the night - his crowd work was relaxed and confident and he extracted two applause breaks within his ten minute set - the audience definitely didn't want him to leave and he was spoken of highly by the punters after the night was done. I'd have every confidence in booking him for a set or MC work (and indeed have already done so with him guest compering for me next month) and would point at him as "one to watch". Good work sir, good work.
