Steve Agee has hosted the Dr. God Revival show at iOWest. Steve also has a lead role as "Floyd Beamer" in ANGRY WHITE MAN, a comedic feature film directed by Dr. God's Brian James O'Connell.
Steve Agee is a Southern California native. After receiving a degree in fine art from Loma Linda University, Agee moved to Los Angeles with his band, The Grazers. Soon after, the band broke up and he found himself taking classes at the Groundlings. For the next six years, Agee supported his comedy habit by working in reality television for such shows as, "The Real World," "Road Rules," "The Osbournes," "Temptation Island" and "Joe Millionaire." It was during that time that Agee met Sarah Silverman while doing a play written by one of Sarah's friends.
In 2003, Agee became a clip researcher (or TV watcher) for "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and eventually became a writer for the show. It was also during that time that he made an appearance in Silverman's film, "Jesus is Magic," as well as Bobcat Goldthwait's film, "Sleeping Dogs Lie." Agee has also been a contributing writer for MTV 2's "The Andy Milonakis Show."
Although this perpetually bespectacled deadpan funny lady has appeared in a slew of cutting-edge comic series (Reno 911!, The Sarah Silverman Program), Harris is best recognized for her high-profile commercial gigs, including ads for GEICO, AVIS and T-Mobile. A former performer and teacher for Los Angeles' famed Groundlings improv troupe, she did TV guest spots and a stint as a Daily Show correspondent before landing her breakout role as the title character's makeup artist cum confidante on Fat Actress. Having found her niche as a wisecracking best bud, she played a similar part on the sitcom Notes from the Underbelly as a pregnant wife's anti-spawning friend. Well-known and well-liked in the comedy community, Harris has also landed dry-witted roles in big-screen laughers, including Will Ferrell's Kicking & Screaming, Eddie Murphy's Daddy Day Care and a string of improvised Christopher Guest flicks. After playing Ed Helms' overbearing girlfriend in 2009's The Hangover, Harris took on a role that played against type when she portrayed the mom in 2010's family film Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

Through her exposure on the critically adored NBC series Freaks and Geeks, Linda Cardellini was singled out by dozens of major publications as one of the most extraordinary young actors in Hollywood, with good reason. As early as age 10, when she was first asked to sing in a school play, Cardellini knew what her future would be.

After breaking into the scene in Freaks and Geeks in the fall of 1999, she starred that season in American Movie Classics' original four-part dramedy The Lot, set in a film studio during the 1930's.

When AMC opted to continue the multi-part series, Linda re-joined her original castmates for several guest-star appearances, winning repeat rave reviews each time.
Since finishing the series, Linda has worked non-stop in both feature films and theatre. She recently starred in The Unsaid, opposite Andy Garcia and was seen in 2001's Legally Blonde, with Reese Witherspoon. Of course, the role that might be considered her breakthrough is that of Velma Dinkey in the film adaptation of Scooby-Doo. She is due to reprise the character in the 2004 sequel. Meanwhile, she will also appear in Lollilove and La La Wood, with Martin Short.
Linda is also genuinely committed to her first love, theater.

Recently, Efren wrapped filming the 2 person drama, CROSSING THE HEART, starring opposite Kris Kristoferson and due to the success of CRANK, it seemed inevitable that a sequel would be made.
