For years he was most widely known as a comedian who sang funny songs, but these days Henry Phillips is concentrating on writing relatable jokes and creating two different video series, Henry’s Kitchen and You and Your Fu*king Coffee. Songs are still a big part of his act, though. “There are a couple of new ones I’ve added to my set, and I’ve done some on radio shows within the last year.” Older tunes receive the occasional update, like “Oops.” The premise is still relevant, but things have changed. “I think at the time I wrote that the big story was the BP oil spill,” he explains. “It’s like, ‘Hey if you mess up, just pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and move on.’ It’s a positive message.” In the past few years, he’s rotated in verses about reading the wrong name at the Oscars and losing an entire Malaysian airliner.
