Comedy at the Stoltz Featuring Phil Mause

Stoltz Listening Room – Avalon Theatre (2nd floor)
Box Office: 410.822.7299

Phil Mause had a dysfunctional childhood and adolescence. His parents couldn't afford to buy him a laptop, or cell phone. Their only investment in his future was a nuclear fall-out shelter where the family hid for hours after every air raid siren. It was while huddling and shivering here that Phil began to develop that unique combination of determination, egomania, and schizophrenia that is essential to a career in standup comedy.

Unfortunately, it was only after 43 years of failure that the bit finally began to "click" as Phil reached his 60's. In recent months, his senior citizen bit has finally begun to resonate with audiences as truly believable.

Phil Mause was born in Brooklyn in 1944, grew up in Long Beach, New York, attended Harvard Law School, and is a partner in the Washington, D.C., office of a national law firm. He has been doing standup comedy since 2004 and appears frequently in New York and Washington, having appeared at venues such as The Broadway Comedy Club, The New York Improv, DC Improv, and The Baltimore Comedy Factory.

It should be noted that Phil also has two grown children who have aggressively supported his efforts to break into the New York comedy scene - largely because they live in Washington and are embarrassed by his continued presence in the District of Columbia;)
As always, the Stoltz doors open at 7pm for drinks and DJ Groundhog, who will spin music before and after the show. Tickets are $20 and available at the Avalon Box Office (410.822.7299), as well as online at
