BIOGRAPHY Jimmy Deluca is a simple-minded goof who lives with his morbidly obese mother on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. He’s a huge fan of professional wrestling and the New York Yankees. His dream job is to one day wrestle at Yankees Stadium. He’s constantly eating
slices of American cheese and his favorite meal is chicken nugget parmesan. His most prized possession is an autographed photo of the California Raisins. He claims to be the greatest Atari 2600 player in the world, though no one has ever bothered to make him prove it.
APPEARANCES Jimmy made his film debut in the comedy short, Jimmy Deluca’s Strike Zone Challenge, when he was randomly selected to throw a strike at the World Series for a million dollars. Despite claims that he could throw over 120 miles per hour and receiving expert advice from Hall-of-Famer, Rollie Fingers, he didn’t win the prize. Two years later, in Jimmy Deluca’s Blind Date, he went on a date with an aspiring exercise guru on a reality dating show. The date included eating fast food in East River Park and getting trapped in a jungle gym. She did not agree to a second one. Soon afterwards, Jimmy began showing up at various comedy clubs and theaters, telling convoluted stories and reading essays he wrote for the local community center. His essays included The Day I Ate An Apple And Nearly Died, The Day I Met E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, and a review of a Pac-Man coloring book he found in the laundry room. He told his Scarrry Storrry for a packed house at Inside Joke with David Cross and hosted several "Harold Nights" at the Upright Citizen Brigade Theater. A self-proclaimed history buff, he produced his own documentary on the Titanic disaster, Jimmy Deluca’s Titanic. He brought back his Scarrry Storrry for the 2011 Andy Kaufman Award and made it all the way to the finals. "I thought I was auditioning for Ghost Hunters," he later remarked, "But this was good too." He’s currently searching the local McDonald’s garbage cans for unused Monopoly pieces.
BIOGRAPHY Barry Glynn is the Vice Principal of Westlake High School. He is extremely proud of his ability to find fun methods of teaching children. Unfortunately, those methods are only fun to him. Barry was an overweight child who was constantly teased by his three evil step-sisters. When the
teasing got too stressful, he would escape to the junkyard behind his house. There, he would pretend he was a part of an improvisation group. The group consisted of him, his teddy bear, a garbage can, an old tire, and the senile owner of the junkyard. (The garbage can later went on to be a featured commentator on VH1’s Best Week Ever.) Tired of his step-sisters’ teasing, Glynn became obsessed with exercise. In high school, he discovered gymnastics and quit his job at the local ballet school to pursue it full time. In 1996, he represented the United States in the Summer Olympics, coached by former Olympian, Mary Lou Retton. He was the favorite to win the gold, but Mary Lou tried to kiss him in the staircase and he ran away. Despite going AWOL at the Olympics, Barry was asked to appear with his fellow Olympians on a special episode of Saved By The Bell: The New Class, where he taught children the dangers of chewing tin foil. The experience so inspired him he decided to become an educator.
APPEARANCES Barry toured New York and Los Angeles, with appearances in various comedy clubs and theaters, teaching audiences about the importance of exercises. He later brought his presentation to Dave Thunder’s one-man show, Don’t Laugh, I Might Be Retarded. He talked about his improvisation experience while hosting The Upright Citizens Brigade Theater’s "Harold Night" and hosted a talent show between students and teachers in Rob Lathan’s Talent Show. He also taught audiences about safe sex and read his self-published children’s novel about two selfish cavemen, Noog and Ooger. When his shoes were stolen at school, he tried to use his morning announcements to convince his students to return them, in a sketch for The Skuntz. Barry helped pick the CUNY All-Stars, a way of honoring the prized graduates of the City University of New York, in the comedy show M4: Comedy’s Biggest Losers. Barry continues to host Talent Show and make appearances in clubs and theaters across the country.

BIOGRAPHY Ricky Rogers is a smooth talking retired baseball player who produces low-cost instructional videos for children. He is the inventor of the "Home Run Triangle," a mathematical theory that uses the concepts of "Love" and "Reality" to hit home runs. He is the only player to appear
in the Major League Baseball encyclopedia twice, due to a typographical error. His greatest on-the-field achievement was single-handedly winning the 1994 World Championship. He is known as much for his controversial off-the-field antics as his on-the-field heroics. His questionable religious views, thirteen marriages, robot daughter, and multiple arrests have kept him in the limelight, years after his retirement. He is currently the spokesman for Gebco’s Super Grill, the only grill not to require the use of your hands.
APPEARANCES After retiring from baseball, Ricky Rogers appeared in his first instructional video, Ricky Rogers: How To Hit The Ball and Hit Home Runs! Soon after its release, Ricky began making public appearances, teaching his Home Run Triangle and giving his controversial seminar, Ricky Rogers: How To Talk To The Media Without Actually Saying Anything. He’s appeared at various comedy clubs and theaters and was a feature in two of Dave Thunder’s one-man shows, Thundered and We See Things Differently. He is currently working on his syndicated children’s show, Ricky Rogers On Deck.
PRESS STATEMENT In 2011, Ricky Rogers was accused of taking performance enhancing drugs during his playing career. He released this statement to the media… Senator Mitchell’s report, Jose Canseco’s new cookbook, and the latest issue of "Little Leaguers Magazine" have all linked me to performance enhancing drugs. They claim that before the 1999 season, I took steroids, HGH, spank, zoz, hoopies, zip, PSP, hydrochloric acid, uppers, downers, razz, snuff, Red Bull, poozang, DDT, and Kang The Conqueror. They point to the fact that I only hit seven home runs in 1998, but hit eighty-seven in 1999 and that my head grew ten hat sizes. These accusations are completely untrue. Everything I’ve ever achieved has been due to old fashioned hard work, discipline, and a regiment of suspicious B-12 shots eight times a day. The increase in body mass was due to palates. Since the allegations, my family and I have been hounded non-stop by the media. My fiancee (who WILL be eighteen on the day of our marriage) can’t even go to volley ball practice without being hounded. The problem is you in the media think that all of us baseball players are robots. But we’re not robots. Robots don’t have feelings. Robots kill without reason. Robots can transform into cars and drive away. I can’t transform into a car and drive away. Heck, I don’t even have a license! I am very proud of my accomplishments, both on and off the field. I served my country faithfully as a member of the 2005 USO Tour, where I juggled bowling pins with Ryan Seacrest. I’m also the founder of the Ricky Rogers Foundation, which provides baseball bats and gloves to paralyzed children all over the globe. So I hope you accept my denial as fact and stop harassing me. There is no need to ask any more questions, investigate any further, or seek the truth. Also: My fiancee’s band will be playing at the Westlake High School Fair next Saturday. "Friend" her on Facebook for more information. Thank You, Ricky Rogers
BIOGRAPHY Larry Tree is a bad actor from Queens, New York, who specializes in student films and local commercials. His stilted line delivery, constant habit of looking directly into the camera, and thick Queens accent have limited his job opportunities. Selfish and oblivious to feelings of
APPEARANCES Larry Tree’s first acting job was as "Solomon" in a commercial for Solomon’s Fun Antiques. He later appeared as himself in the student film The Adventures of Larry Tree. He was also a frequent guest on the hit public access show Smashing Coleslaw. In 2002, Larry Tree bought a time machine from a local merchant and unwittingly caused trouble for himself in Larry Tree: Adventures Through Time.

BIOGRAPHY Mark Twain, the "father of American literature" and the first stand-up comedian, was accidentally frozen during a book tour in the Arctic. In suspended animation for nearly a century, he was recovered by RE-GEN, a top secret government program that had previously revived
Abraham Lincoln. Living in a time period that is completely foreign to him, he has committed himself to making the ultimate career comeback.
APPEARANCES Mark Twain began his comeback by performing some of his old material at various stand-up venues in New York. He soon became obsessed with the game "Password" and grew frustrated when the audiences wouldn’t get his outdated clues. His big break came when he was asked to be the warm-up comic for Inside Joke, featuring guests such as Al Franken, Mike Myers, Dave Foley, Scott Thompson, and Adam Mckay. He became a guest himself during a special Inside Joke at the Chicago Improv Festival.

He also starred in his own music video, Twainaucity.
BIOGRAPHY Reginald Cornelius Biggens was a successful Shakespearean actor whose on stage appearances included notable runs on Broadway in the 1920s. More of an artist than a businessman, financial trouble forced him to take a role in the 1929 horror film, R.C. Biggens
Meets Count Blood. Despite being an obvious rip off of Dracula, the film became an instant success. It was soon followed by horror classics such as R.C. Biggens Meets The Ghoul Monster, R.C. Biggens and The Panted Killer, Run Fast, R.C. Biggens, and R.C. Biggens and The Suspicious Bellhop. Much to his dismay, Biggens became typecast as a horror film star and found his acting jobs rather limited. He tried to make a Broadway comeback, even financing his own theatrical efforts, but people wouldn't take him seriously in dramatic roles. Towards the end of his life, Biggens was reduced to minor roles in B-movies. His most famous role from that era was playing "Dr. Goodfill" in That Mad Scientist Show! He only starred in two more films after that - the critically panned comedy, The Sac Brothers Meet R.C. Biggens, and his last horror film, R.C. Biggens Meets The Green Gorilla. He was the first film star to openly admit to an addiction to erotic asphyxiation. He died in 1952, at the age of eighty-three, naked with a plastic bag over his head. Most of R.C. Biggens films were believed lost in a studio fire in the 1940s, though several copies have recently been discovered and uploaded to the internet.
