Phil for over 10 years had worked two jobs, one at the cinema and another at Manba Burger. Both of which were causing him to become extremely depressed. Until one day when an odd man came in to the cinema to watch a blank screen and also afterwards go to Manba Burger to get out the rain, to then moments later become his co-worker, Bernard Black. Because of how more depressed this other man was while looking moronic in a Manba Burger uniform, before suddenly quit as should as the rain stopped, it caused Phil to relise that he could quit anytime and find something better and more worthwhile.
Over the years Phil has managed to finish the degree he was doing at universty and has now become a Channel 4 camera man and also he does stand up comedy as his hobby (one memorable joke of his is about how he met Bernard Black and that meeting changed he's life)
