Phil Ellis is an award-winning comedian who has entertained audiences of all ages with his amalgamation of off-beat observational material and physical comedy.
Solidifying his reputation in 2014 with his undisputed anarchic sleeper hit of a show Funz and Gamez, Phil won the Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Award’s panel prize.
After meeting incredible critical acclaim, Funz and Gamez was broadcast as part of BBC Radio 4’s Fresh from the Fest, as well as part of BBC Comedy Feeds (BBC Three).
The show went on to have an 18-show run at the Soho theatre, slots at all major comedy festivals, as well as a further run at the Udderbelly on Southbank.
Phil’s recent Edinburgh shows, Phil Ellis is Alone Together (But Mostly Alone) (2016) and Phil Ellis Has Been On Ice (2017), continued this success.
Phil’s TV appearances include The Russell Howard Hour (Sky) and Drunk History: UK (Comedy Central), and writing and performing credits on BBC Three’s The Tapeface Tapes.
Phil also co-wrote three comedy shorts- Phil’s Ill– for Dave. These won ‘Pick of the Day’ status in multiple publications, including The Times, The Guardian and The Daily Mail.
