About Phil Kay

Phil Kay is a Scottish stand-up comedian. Kay became known to the public when he won the newcomer's competition, 'So You Think You're Funny', at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1989. He then went on to be nominated for the prestigious Perrier Award in 1993. He also won the award for Best Stand-Up at the British Comedy Awards in 1994. Kay continues to work worldwide as a live stand-up, most notably on regular and very successful tours of the Adelaide Festival and Melbourne International Comedy Festival in Australia. Following his rise to comedic fame, Phil went on to be comedic (though not on stage) selling books in Halifax, Nova Scotia. In April 2012, Phil's show at Aberdeen's Blue Lamp was cut short due to a completely misunderstood performance and crowd booing.
