Manny Starr’s original plan was to become President, but since he was born in the Philippines, he’s waiting on the unstoppable dynamic wonderforce that is Arnold Schwarzenegger’s political career to blast away the whole “you have to be born in the United States” thing for him.
While he waits for that, Manny is an employment attorney moonlighting as a greeting card guy. If you internet people buy enough greeting cards, he hopes to someday be a greeting card guy moonlighting as an employment attorney.
Manny has a background in graphic design and marketing. He basically had to start this company as a comedic creative outlet after one too many jokes in court left him skating dangerously close to contempt of court. Just kidding, judges love when lawyers joke in employment hearings, in fact the vast majority of working comedians in America today started out as employment lawyers until a judge hooked them up with an agent.* Manny is an Aries whose hobbies include wrapping tiny gift cards in a large series of matryoshka-like boxes to mess with people (he’s a giver AND a jokester, but he is married ladies) and smoking meat (not like that, weirdo, brisket and stuff).
He and his wife live in Los Angeles with their cat Leo and dog Zorro, a fun pair of floofs who sort of hate each other but are currently in a tense truce for the sake of their humans.
*the lie detector test determined this was a lie.
Alex Rocha has been a pillar of the motion picture industry since the dawn of the 21st century. Of course, we mean “pillar” in the sense of the fake plaster pillars like in the Greek restaurant where he worked as a dishwasher at age fifteen before starting a job as a movie theater usher.
He then moved forward to the thrilling Hollywood career of Blockbuster Video cashier before cresting at age nineteen as a background extra, aka human furniture. If you squint really hard, you can see him as one of the pirates in a battle scene in “Pirates of the Caribbean 3.” A Texas-born Polish-Brazilian Scorpio, Alex has lived in nine states, including Florida, where an incident with a pair of Truck Nutz, a case of Mountain Dew, and a manatee made Alex the original “Florida Man” and forced him to have to lay low in Germany to avoid the heat for a while. Or something like that.
When Alex was a little boy, a carnival psychic gazed into her crystal ball and told him she saw many cards in his future. After his dream of being a professional poker player didn’t work out, he had no choice but to start InYourFace Designs with Manny (his background in product design and sourcing didn’t hurt either). In his free time, Alex enjoys biking, snowboarding, artsy fartsy stuff, music festivals, and visiting the grave of his dog who died of diabetes and apologizing to her ghost for naming her Sugar.
Abigail Isaacoff was born in the wagon of a traveling show but grew up in suburban Philadelphia. She says she grew up in Philly because nobody knows where Montgomery County is and she wants people to know she is willing to choke a bitch.
Like Alex, she also had a brief but illustrious career as a background extra, mostly working as a mid-century secretary and a Swedish astronaut. In seventh grade, a major French designer stole her idea for a glittery nail polish color through a staged teen magazine contest which Abigail’s mother still talks about to this day. She plays the flute and didgeridoo with equal aplomb. After having earth-shattering success as a paralegal and as an unpaid stand-up comedian, she made a New Year’s resolution to become a writer and here we are. Can you believe she’s publishing a children’s book in 2021? Abigail currently resides in New Orleans where you can find her giving street art tours of the Marigny neighborhood and complaining about Mardi Gras.
