A NOTE FROM PHIL
When I was at WIOD, Miami we had a guy who I thought was the best general manager I ever worked for, Bob Green. A terrific guy who actually would sit and show prep with me, he was a shorter guy, probably around 5’6 and had a higher pitched voice. I took this Bob Green, using his physical attributes but made his personality opposite of the real Bob. He’s a bigot, autocratic and super sexist. Constantly trying to move on women he has an insulting manner and a lousy toupee he calls a “hair system.” We had Bob doing lots of jobs from doctor to restaurant manger but making him a grocery store executive was perfect. A grocery store is a place where we expect respectful, courteous treatment. But Bob turns it into a predators playground. Bob is a character that lends itself to any issues involving women’s rights or employer/employee relations. The voice is one that I have to warm up the throats for since it’s a near “Mickey Mouse.” Trump Bret into character I simply put myself in that narcissistic mind set that says “The world owes me and it’s not paying up. What gives?”
- Career. Bob or Robert Green is the CEO of Frazier Foods, a grocery store chain headquartered in Buena Park, California.
- Napoleon-esque. He is a short man with a toupee that he calls a “$15,000 hair system” that is constantly mocked by his female employees.
- He Got Game. Bob is always hitting on his female checkers or customers, saying things like “may I show you where the corn is? They don’t.
- Biggot Much? He once told a black customer who asked where he kept the “OJ,” “thanks to you people he’s free as a bird.” When the Asian food guy comes to stock the shelves he plays the Korean national anthem, hoping it will get him better service.
- Wipe and leave. Bob is also a stickler about his female employees taking long bathroom breaks. So he had a poster made up that he hung on the inside of the ladies bathroom stall doors that is a picture of Bob staring and the words “Come on, break time is over. Wipe and leave.”
- All the stops. Bob is wealthy but even with his money he can’t get what men to date him. He shows up to Frazier Foods in a limousine, wears big rings, watches and stylish suits but the women laugh at him.
The Phil Hendrie show is the best part of my day. He's in a class by himself! I love having a BSP so I never run out of comedy genius -new, old, archived classics...theres even online live chats. Are you kidding? I'd pay twice the price for it.
"I've been counting on Phil for entertainment and direction for 15 years. I'd put him up against any CNN or Fox News pundit. My Back Stage Pass (BSP) subscription is invaluable as I can access my favorite bits, phone calls or characters at the drop of a hat. Phil's admirable takes on relationships, politics and sports are shared via his "Phil Only" sessions and the official start to my weekend is chatting it up with Phil and fellow BSP members during his Friday Night Chats. Bang For Your Buck Baby!"
