Jay Phillips is known is known for his appearances alongside of Will Ferrell in Semi Pro, Tina Fey in Baby Mama, Brittani Snow in Prom Night and many television appearances such as the DL Hughley Show, Fresh off the Boat and may others. Jay visited the Paramount Theater in 2013 and the audience would not allow him to leave the stage after four other comedians had already performed.

Now he returns from California for another star studded show.
