Meet the Author

Steve Greenberg (Los Angeles, CA) is an experienced actor and even more experienced asshole. His acting career has included stints in regional theatre, off-Broadway musicals, and NYC'S Gotham City Improv Company. Currently, he performs improvisational comedy with the L.A. Connection Comedy. Greenberg lives at home with a wife, three children, two dogs, and several cats in an old house that Bob Vila would run from.

Dennis Lavalle (Los Angeles, CA) has dealt with plenty of not-ready-for-primetime assholes as a Hollywood acting coach. A graduate of New York University, Lavalle knows what it takes to properly pull off the asshole attitude on both coasts. He credits his wife Jeanne and their two kids for saving him from a life of meaningless sexual interludes ending in an alcohol-induced death face-down in the gutter.

Chris Illuminati is a freelance writer and fulltime a**hole. He's a regular contributor to sites like AskMen.com, Asylum.com, and TheBachelorGuy.com, and pretends to be witty daily on www.chrisilluminati.com. He lives with his wife in New Jersey.
