S LYKA : a completely spot on jack nicholson impression. in german. incredible.

Carl Wolfe : The best part in this for me, is at the very end after he's just blown all the SNL producers away with maybe the best audition ever and Phil says very sarcastically "...Next!"

novembermember : I can’t believe that he’s been gone 20 years. He was captivating and insanely talented.

samdiego : Phil was probably the greatest and cast member of snl ever! I don’t know if any of you noticed but Phil on average was in more sketches than any other snl cast member during his time on the show. He was that great of a character actor and just flat out hilarious
