Matt Mielke MATTHEW MIELKE grew up in Miami, many an evening enjoying the exploits of Mental Floss, Miami's infamous uproarious improv troupe of the 80s and 90s. Matthew tested the cold heartless waters of improv with University of Florida's Theatre Strike Force (TSF) from 1997 to 1999, performing in the TSF Mainstage and Uncensored shows. Matthew spent the years 2000 to 2008 doing things professionally that should not be mentioned. In 2010, he rediscovered his love of improv by paying Just The Funny (JTF) exactly $1,050 to take five superb improv acting classes and one sketch writing class. Matthew has never been in a real play and has no ambition to. Serious theater is entirely silly. Matthew is currently a member of JTF's Mainstage Cast and the world-renowned sketch/improv troupe Special in a Bad Way."

Maria Tomaino MARIA TOMAINO is a New Yorker that's not from the city, an Italian that's not from Italy and an Educator thatís not a teacher. She has embraced the lavish Miami lifestyle with her fully loaded Hyundai sedan, complete with AM/FM radio. Donít reference any movies around her because she hasnít seen a lot of the classics, but can rattle off a Seinfeld episode like thereís no tomorrow. On nights when Maria isnít performing, you can hear her loud, distinctive and even bird-like mating call laugh from the audience.
