  1. The Wheel of Misfortune! Laughs a comin’. Laughs and gore. Laughs and gore and tragedy. And a tune or two. The whole spectrum here folks, as Phillips tells paramedic tales blunt and sharp, good and bad, horrific and heartwarming. A spinning wheel choses the story so every show is different – a brilliant marketing maneuver.

    More storytelling than acting, these monologues are a collection of engrossing tales one might hear in a tavern over pints as Phillips opens up his hectic world of daily emergencies with a warm, palatable, matter of fact delivery. A learning experience to boot.
