With the release of Phil’s debut comedy album, Pervert, chicks are taking notice. iTunes featured the album, which cracked the Top 40 in their Comedy Chart.
Punchline Magazine wrote, “Phil Mazo brings a light-hearted, almost highbrow tone to cringe comedy,” and also featured Phil in its A Tight Five video interview series. Meanwhile, The Serious Comedy Site is “seriously betting Mazo will get ‘discovered’ by some major studio, get his own sitcom or a couple of blockbuster movies.”
Indeed, his roles in the film High Hopes helped earn it acceptances to both the Cannes Film Festival Short Corner and HBO's New York International Latino Film Festival. In the film, Phil plays two separate characters. He also stars in a national commercial for CarMax.
Phil’s many national radio appearances include The Bob & Tom Show, and his standup is in regular rotation on Sirius XM Satellite Radio’s Raw Dog Comedy channel and AOL Radio's Comedy Attack! station. His writing has appeared in the New York Post, Sports Illustrated and The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Jokes.
Phil was picked out of 600 comics to perform in the first annual 2010 Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta, represented the United States in Yuk Yuk's Great Canadian Laugh Off, is one of only ten comedians selected to perform in The New York City Underground Comedy Festival's 2008 Emerging Comic's Contest and was also recognized by the festival as one of the best comedians under 30.
Phil is also a cartoonist, musician, and filmmaker whose comedy videos have attracted over 650 subscribers on YouTube alone.
