Zander Schaus is an actor, comedian, writer, and director (always in that order) from the sunny, yet very dangerous streets of Las Vegas. Yes the gambly one. There he performed comedy at Caesars Palace, The Venetian, The Rio, and a bunch of casinos that have since been torn down. Unrelated. In LA he's performed improv and sketch at Second City, UCB, iO West and some other theaters that have since been torn down. Related. He co-directed and co-starred in the South Coast Distribution Fests' Best Feature, "Apples and Oranges." And helped create the series "Dirty Friends" for Funny or Die. A founding member of the comedy trio ALF, he wrote most of and starred in the show "Working Title." A show that will live in infamy as the show that lost in the finals in a rigged contest at the iO West Sketchfest. He always thanks his family and friends, but they don't read these. He's a proud member of Actors Equity and sorta proud member of SAG/AFTRA.

Television (Comedy) Actor Various stupid (and some very interesting) questions are answered by men.
Television by David McNally (Crime, Drama and Thriller) Actor Top-lawyer Ron Trott runs his own prestigious L.A. law firm, which offers first-rate criminal defense, charging top-dollar to the wealthy, guilty or innocent or civil party, or occasionally accepts a case for the publicity or for a friend. He has an elaborate team, mainly comprised of specialists, from detectives and ex-public prosecutor Luther Graves to various paralegals such as a specialist in jury-selection and psychology. However Trott has a bright right-hand, charming Tom Nicholson, who is likely to become at least as good a pleader, provided he can control one weakness Ron seems immune for: human feelings such as sympathy, sincere disgust or compassion can cloud the cool competitive killer-instinct to win at any cost to earn a king's ransom.
