A.C. Hammond began his writing career at the ripe age of 6 with his award-winning short story, My Poo Is Blue. In 1998, A.C., which is short for Action Charlie, moved to Los Angeles where he began writing for various television shows and feature films, a few of which were actually watchable. When he’s not writing he keeps busy wondering why people would ever willingly attend a parade, but his true passions include cuddling up with a good book next to a crackling fire behind the train station, or startling animals with an air horn. His comic inspirations include Peter Sellers, Chris Elliot, and the great American writer, Dalton Trumbo who once told a bratty neighbor kid to get the hell off his lawn. A.C. currently lives with his beautiful wife and daughter, and a very nervous dog named George.
Adam recently relocated to Los Angeles from New York in order to pursue his dream of becoming a comedy writer and filmmaker. If that doesn't work out, he'll follow his other dream: that one where he's trying to swim in an Olympic-sized pool full of chunky peanut butter while Al Gore just laughs at him. Either way, this kid’s got dreams and dreams make the world go round.
Allan Cueziy hails from Pembroke, FL and arrived on the Sunset strip 4 years ago, with nothing with him but a tube of lip balm, a pair of Tom’s, and a dream. He has worked under the tutelage of such wonders as: Jerry Seinfeld and some other funny Jewish guy.
Betsy McNeely is the oldest Leek staffer by, like, a lot. A native of Madison, Wisconsin, (home of The Onion), when asked by Leek founders Tony and Tyler why this qualified her to work at the Leek, she replied “Because I said so," and was hired on the spot. She has been a video game artist, a teacher, and a back-up performer for drag queens. Her hobbies include making photobombs to amuse friends, knitting weird hats, and wishing that Eddie Izzard would propose already. And yes, she really is that blurry in real life.
Bos Phin is glad he's finally found a home at theLEEK, though he knows that there are bigger things out there. If he could just get in the right room or have the right friends everything would be different for him. He could reverse his last 19 years in Hollywood where he's worked hard at the craft of acting, writing and anime. Until then he will remain a short little ball of hate.
Dan recently moved to LA, fresh off the boat from New Jersey. He spends most of his time yelling at random pedestrians, defending his home state in an attempt to repair the damage done to its reputation from years of tragic reality television. When he's not doing that, he's either playing with his dog, Otto (not pictured), eating Chipotle, or transporting his most recent data report on "Human Behaviors and Weaknesses" to his fellow alien race... ehrm, I mean, brushing up on current events. He plans to pursue his Hollywood dream of making Emma Stone fall in love with him and whisking her away to an exotic island, where they will happily reside in a hut and make a living by selling blue crystal meth to island natives.
Laura Clark is a writer and comedian from Boston. She's adjusting to LA but misses the weather, sports fans, and world-class burritos of her hometown.
Megan Neale is our in-house 'Doug' expert, as well as a 'sous' graphic artist. She learned that term while watching the Iron Chef on the treadmill. Too hungry to continue exercising and too tired to cook, she now likes Wendy's. Follow her on Twitter and become one of her many fans she loves! (She has 10 followers...3 real, 7 bought.)
Twenty-something LA transplant. My hobbies include regretting things and string cheese. Legally, I'm an adult. Functionally, I'm a pain in the ass for my parents. I also do tweets: twitter.com/spencercoates
