Adrianna Lynn Adrianna
The daughter of a jazz pianist and an abstract painter, Lynn began her love affair with the arts at an early age. After an international tour as a back-up dancer for C & C Music Factory, she graduated from the two-year Meisner program at The William Esper Studios in NYC and promptly immersed herself in the theater scene, playing some wonderful and iconic roles Off-Broadway. Upon moving to L.A., Lynn immediately began working in film, television and voiceovers. She also continued her work as an arts teacher(acting and dance) with low income and at-risk kids in L.A. Recent favorites include: "Her" (directed by Spike Jonze), "Massacre (Sing to Your Children)” (written by Jose Rivera), "The F List," "Law and Order: Criminal Intent" (on which she recurred), "Godspeed," "Annie in the Aisle of Irma," and "Loaded." Lynn is honored to be a part of this company and is anticipating a whole lot of laughter. Thanks Jason, Billy and Amy!
Barry Barry Gordon

At six, Barry recorded "Nuttin' for Christmas," still listed as one of the top ten best-selling Christmas records of all time. When he was thirteen, Barry's Broadway debut, in Herb Gardner's "A Thousand Clowns," earned him a Tony nomination for the role of Nick, a role he reprised in the successful film version. Barry became a fixture as a character actor in feature films and television, most prominently as a co-star in "Fish," as the lawyer Rabinowitz in "Archie Bunker's Place,” and as the Rabbi in HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm." Barry's voice has been heard for decades as the Nestle Quik Bunny and as Donatello in the original animated series "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles." His latest film, “Losing Control,” is currently available on home video. In 1988, Barry became the longest-serving president of the Screen Actors Guild, holding the office for seven years -- one year longer than either Charlton Heston or Ronald Reagan.
