Phil Harmonic is the host of the Nestropolitan Opera's "Live from the Nest" opera series. Addressing the viewers from his front-row seat, he introduced various opera numbers starring Placido Flamingo, including "The Telephone of Brazil," "Peligro" and the "Up and Down Opera."

In other episodes he introduced such stars as a diva rehearsing the alphabet, "Charmin'", and an ensemble who performed the rhyming opera "Wally." In addition, he has announced James Galway on "Pretty Great Performances".

He has an Uncle Donny who sometimes accompanies him to the opera, but needs to be reminded not to snore through the performance.

The name is a parody of the term "philharmonic," which refers to a full-sized orchestra.
