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 learning his craft. 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.
