Philip "Philly Dee" Doyle, (born July 22, 1992), is a traceur from Cambridge, England[1]. He is known for his bowl head-like hair cut and incredible accuracy and balance when it comes to landing on rails and other awkward obstacles. His video Professor Longhair, Big Chief, also featuring Kie Willis, has become a big hit with over 2,400,000 views on YouTube.

He is currently a member of the World Freerunning & Parkour Federation[1]. Philip is not related to Ryan Doyle.

Under the pseudonym of Joe Thomas, Phil Doyle stars in the British sitcom, The Inbetweeners, as Simon Cooper. The show has been nominated for 'Best Situation Comedy' at BAFTA twice, in 2009 and 2010. Following the conclusion of the third series, the cast and crew of the show revealed a fourth series would be unlikely as the show had run its course.
