“A benchmark of intelligent zaniness.” – The Milpitas Post

“A ‘raging optimist’ is how Johnson describes himself and his
comedy reflects his love of upbeat topics and eschews the snarky,
negative tone of many others.” – Solano Daily Republic

“Comedian Phil Johnson tickles crowds with his jocular jams.” – The San Jose Metro

“Phil continued his show with intense energy to the very last joke. His jokes spared no one and spun so quickly at times he would wait for the audience to catch up. ” – The Copper Gazette


Phil Johnson has an action packed show filled with his two loves, comedy and music. It’s a show filled with sharp unexpected turns, sneak attack jokes, and hilarious songs that doesn’t shy away from controversial territory… race, sex, religion, and doughnuts – so many doughnuts – all delivered from the viewpoint of a guy who happily grew up in the deeply multi-everything community of the San Francisco Bay Area.

Phil has been seen and heard at the Sundance Film Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, on Sirius/XM and Bob and Tom radio, and on Amazon Prime. He’s also released multiple comedy specials and albums filled with his colorful, tightly-written comedy.

What can I say about Phil Johnson… Always…on time, courteous with staff & patrons, goes the extra marketing mile, does his homework and knows the room he’s playing, doesn’t let ego get in the way and…always leaves em laughing & applauding!  David Tribble/ESI & the TribbleRun Comedy Network

Phil is a hard-working self-starter who invariably understands exactly how to communicate with an audience and make them laugh…loudly and often. I cannot remember an instance in which he faltered on stage or produced a show that failed to generate an appreciative audience. Phil is a totally committed artist and a resourceful, creative, solution-oriented person who is frequently able to come up with new and innovative approaches to his comedy routines.  Barry Katzmann – San Francisco Comedy Day

I have booked Phil many times to perform for many different kinds of audiences. He’s always able to deliver a high quality professional show in a refreshing and different way that pleases the audience. Having worked with many comics over the years, I’ve found Phil to be one of the easiest to deal with. He’ll do whatever it needs to be done to make a show successful and then deliver on stage.  John Dekoven – Bunjo’s Comedy Lounge – Dublin, CA
