The critically acclaimed show “I Never Met a Jerk I Didn’t Like” is an unabashed referendum on dating in the 21st Century. It World Premiered in February 2013 as a record-breaking, highest-grossing sold-out solo show in the Los Angeles Whitefire Theatre’s 30-year history. The show then sold out every performance at the Hollywood Fringe Festival and was rated #3 on LA Weekly’s “Top 10 Shows to See.” “I Never Met a Jerk I Didn’t Like” was selected among entries from all over the world to be part of the prestigious United Solofest in New York on Theatre Row. The show was a smash hit and sold out the Off-Broadway house and was voted: "Audience Favourite.”

Directed by Kimleigh Smith, Tiffany Phillips’ show invites us on her personal roller coaster ride through the minefield of modern dating and love. Her tour de force performance lays it all on the line. Bold, brash, hilarious and totally transparent. Tiffany takes the audience on a comical and at times heartbreaking journey through the jerk-magnet phase in her life—a topic most contemporary women (and even men) can relate to. They say, “bad decisions make good stories” —especially true in this case. Get into the mind of a woman who shuns the good guy while chasing the bad boy, only to discover the good, bad and ugly of love, is to ultimately love every part herself.

“Tiffany brilliantly flits around her life with a masterful and nuanced performance. Jerk Is funny, clever and darkly perceptive.”
-Samantha Ronceros, Noho Arts District

“Jerk is hilarious, outrageous, heartfelt, inspiring, empowering, and highly engrossing.” -Bob Leggett, The Examiner

“The way Tiffany Phillips manipulates her face, her voice, her body language to form brand new personas displays the talent of a burgeoning Whoopi Goldberg.”
— Jonas Schwartz, Theatermania

“In a performance that echoes the physical and vocal transformations of Anna Deavere Smith, Phillips manages to tell a story that is personal, entertaining, and cathartic.”
— Holly Derr, Ms Magazine

“Phillips exudes such honesty and approachability, I actually felt as if I could go on stage and give Tiffany a hug. The talent spurring forth through comic timing, singing, caricature, and storytelling showcased Phillips’ many talents with a memorable story to boot.”
- Sheana Ochoa, SLAM
