Benny Davis is best known as 'the musical one' from comedy trio The Axis of Awesome. With them he has toured the world, playing sold out shows from London to LA, Sydney to Singapore, and even Klamath Falls, OR. He is surprisingly quite famous in Sweden. He has been on literally heaps of stuff, including YouTube! You may recognize him better as 'the short one' from The Axis of Awesome. He is the Dragon Friends' bard, providing live improvised music to accompany the campaign, and also occasionally interrupting to voice his contempt for the whole thing.

Edan Lacey is an award winning actor, director and improviser. A graduate of the directing program at the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS), he is co-founder of Improv Theatre Sydney and teaches improvisation for the National Institute of Dramatic Art. A trained actor, he is a graduate of the New Actor’s Workshop in New York City, a school founded by legendary director Mike Nichols, George Morrison and improvisation pioneer Paul Sills, and studied clown at Ecole Phillipe Gaulier. Edan is a two-time National Theatresports champion, the creator of two original web-series, and has written, performed and directed shows at The Adelaide Fringe and Melbourne International Comedy Festivals, The Upright Citizen’s Brigade in New York City and ImprovOlympic in Chicago. Edan plays Baston, a wholly original and legally distinct character. A level 3 human fighter, he is the handsomest and also the best.

About the Hosts

Greg Tito has had weird and long career as an Off Broadway stage manager, a playwright, a theater carpenter, a secretary, an RPG designer, a games journalist, and now a PR/Marketing person. He has loved Dungeons & Dragons ever since 1985 when he found an old copy of the AD&D Dungeon Master’s Guide on his brother’s bookshelf and he honed that love of fantasy storytelling in the dark streets of Sasserine by way of the Upper West Side gaming group he joined in 2004. He moved his family (wife + two young kids) to Seattle in 2015 to work on D&D and he’s never looked back. You can find Greg on Twitter.

Shelly Mazzanoble will always play a magic-user. There. She said it. Enough pretending to want to break out of her comfort zone. She’s a magic-user. She’s also the brand lead for Avalon Hill and loves talking about that one time she played Diplomacy and SOMEONE (okay, it was Ben Petrisor) stabbed her in the back and took over her beloved Russia. If you enjoy tales of sorcery, board game upheavals, and reasons her 3 year-old is crying (HINT: She tried to make him eat a Nutella crepe), find Shelly on Twitter and Facebook.
