Spokane comedian Phillip Kopczynski spent 10 years working in corporate America before leaving to pursue his comedy career.

Since then, Kopczynski has won Valleyfest Clean Comedy Competition, placed second at the Colorado Springs World Series of Comedy Satellite and has performed across North America.

Earlier this month, he won first place at the Ft. Wayne Indiana World Series of Comedy Satellite.

He’s also worked alongside the likes of Kyle Kinane, Bert Kreischer, Adam Ferrara, Tim Meadows, Jay Mohr, Jubal Flagg, Dan Cummins, Fortune Feimster and Dennis Miller, and he’ll perform with Andrew Rivers at Spokane Comedy Club in September.

Kopczynski will record his first album, “Hillbilly Glamorous,” at the Big Dipper on Saturday.

So it’s safe to say the move away from the business world was successful.

However, Kopczynski hasn’t been able to completely escape corporate life as he now performs at events for companies like Red Lion Hotels, Pacific Steel and Altria.

Theater review: ‘Waitress’ mixes up a delicious confection for theater fans

UPDATED: 2:37 p.m.

Take flavors that are sweet and tart, like a good key lime. Mix it with characters well worn and comfortable. Stir in a dash of vinegar for some bite. Bake it into an entertaining and heartwarming confection. This is the recipe for “Waitress,” the touring Broadway show playing at the First Interstate Center for the Arts through Sunday.
