Mike Phirman is incredibly uncomfortable writing about himself in the third person, so he is going to write his bio in the second person.
You’re from San Luis Obispo, California. You attended UCLA where you received a degree in Philosophy. After you graduated, you sold your car and used the money to hitchhike across Europe. When you came back to America, you worked as a visual effects artist for movies and TV. (Don’t tell anyone, but on one episode of C.S.I. in which the camera follows a spark that sets off a car bomb, if you play it frame-by-frame, the spark briefly spells out “Hi Mom!”)
You love folding laundry and were born without a sense of smell.
In 2010, you made a comedy music album called “The Very Last Songs I Will Ever Record (Part 1)”. You lost your mind when “Weird Al” Yankovic showed up to perform on one of the tracks.
(He’s one of the heroes that it’s actually good to meet.)
After having two kids, you shifted gears slightly and started recording songs that are about kids. That is, they’re songs that are kid-friendly, but at the same time, they can be listened to in the car by the whole family and (hopefully) the parents won’t want to find you and kill you. You released an album of these in 2018 called “Songs to Sing at Children.”
Most recently, you googled the words “comedy musician bio what to write”—you found nothing helpful.
