When Flip Schultz was eight years old, he won a summer camp talent show by performing stand up comedy. There was never a doubt in his mind that comedy would be his future.
For a while he performed wherever he could find an audience, whether at a family get together, bar-mitzvahs, seniors center; he didn't care. He just wanted to make people laugh.
Finally, at 18, he braved a real comedy stage and won the open mic contest. For the next few years Flip performed at many comedy clubs (and bars) honing his craft, paying his dues and learning his craft. And he still managed to earn his degree in theater.
After leaving South Florida as a local favorite, Flip now lives in Los Angeles and tours clubs & colleges all over the country, and has quickly become a sought after comic in Scandinavia.
His high energy and very physical show has made him a favorite on the LA comedy scene and a regular performer at the world famous Hollywood Improv. Plus he has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with such performers as:

“He…performs well-conceived bits that show an acumen for writing and social satire”- The Sun Sentinel

“Flip Schultz is a very original and energetic comic whose comedic palette has more colors than many well-know stand-up comedians who have their own sitcom” – www.theseriouscomedysite.com
