    Flip Schultz

    When Flip Schultz was eight years old, he won a summer camp talent show by performing stand up comedy. There was never a doubt in his mind that comedy would be his future.

    For a while he performed wherever he could find an audience, whether at a family get together, bar-mitzvahs, seniors center; he didn't care. He just wanted to make people laugh.

    Finally, at 18, he braved a real comedy stage and won the open mic contest. For the next few years Flip performed at many comedy clubs (and bars) honing his craft, paying his dues and finding his comedic voice. And he still managed to earn his degree in theater.

    After leaving South Florida as a local favorite, Flip now lives in Los Angeles and tours clubs & colleges all over the country, and has quickly become a sought after comic in Scandinavia.

    As a writer, Flip has written many short plays, a musical, and was an on staff writer for Terry Fator & Friends Show in Las Vegas. Flip has also written a film called "Mr. Right Before" (© 2002) that was one of 250 scripts to make it into the second round of competition in HBO's Project Greenlight.

    After leaving as one of the hottest and most requested comics in South Florida, Flip moved cross country to LA. His high energy and very physical show has made him a favorite on the LA comedy scene and a regular performer at the world famous Hollywood Improv. Plus he has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with such performers as:

    PAUL ANKA, LEWIS BLACK, GEORGE CARLIN, DANA CARVEY (contributing writer), BOBBY COLLINS, TOMMY DAVIDSON, JEFF DUHNUM, PABLO FRANCISCO (frequent writer), BOBCAT GOLDTHWAIT, DAVID ALAN GRIER, MARYELLEN HOOPER, WENDY LEIBMAN, JAMIE KENNEDY (frequent writer), JACKIE 'THE JOKEMAN' MARTLING, LARRY MILLER, JAY MOHR, BOB NELSON, JOHN PINETTE, KEVIN POLLACK, ROBERT SCHIMMEL, PAULY SHORE, BOBBY SLAYTON, THE TEMPTATIONS, JOE TORRY, DAMON WAYANS, MICHEAL WINSLOW & “WEIRD AL” YANKOVIC.

    NOTABLE QUOTES:

    “He’s like an ostrich on PCP!” - George Carlin

    “Within seconds, Schultz turns into a manic, mike-wielding madman…” - The Calgary Herald

    "With his affable demeanor, rubbery limbs & tall, wiry frame, he reminded me of a young Jim Carrey…" - Ink19.com

    Awesome job this week. Always great to see an artist who gets better each time I see them and you are one of them" - Les McCurdy (Owner of McCurdy's Comedy Theater/Sarasota, FL.)

    “Flip Schultz is unlike any Generation X comedian around today…he's actually funny.” - Route 41 Magazine

    “Flip Schultz's comedy prowess is second to no one. His comedic versatility is the best I've seen in a long time. Not to mention he has huge balls...when it comes to taking chances on the dramatic beats.”   – Craig Moss (film director)

    "Flip did what his own idols like Howie Mandel, and Steve Martin had done for ages. He made intimate contact with the audience. And, the reserved Nordic crowd...adored the transgression." – The New York Resident

    “He…performs well-conceived bits that show an acumen for writing and social satire” - The Sun Sentinel

    “Flip Schultz is a very original and energetic comic whose comedic palette has more colors than many wellknown stand-up comedians who have their own sitcom” – www.theseriouscomedysite.com
