Norm Lewis - Just finishing his magnificent Broadway run as the Phantom in Phantom of the Opera, you may also know Mr. Lewis as Senator Edison Davis in Scandal. He has lent his powerful baritone to leading roles as varied as Javert in Les Miserables (on Broadway and in London), Billy Flynn in Chicago and King Triton in The Little Mermaid. A year after being featured in the starry Broadway ensemble of Sondheim on Sondheim, he was tapped to play the title hero opposite Audra McDonald in a reimagined Porgy and Bess, for which he received a Tony nomination.
The Bitchy Waiter - The Bitchy Waiter lives and works in New York City. When he was a little boy, he used to play "waiter" with his brothers taking their orders and serving them lunch. Sadly, his playtime has become a reality and he has been wearing an apron pretty consistently since 1990, working in restaurants in Denver, Houston and New York. In 2008, he started a blog as a way to release the frustrations that come with being in the world of food service. Writing stories on the Internet about annoying customers was better than poking the annoying customers in their eyes with forks. The Bitchy Waiter has appeared on television as a guest on Dr. Phil and has also been a guest commentator on CBS Sunday Morning. He has been interviewed by the New York Post, U.S. News and World Report, Huffington Post, Money Magazine, Bon Appetit and countless other food and beverage websites and magazines. He enjoys The Brady Bunch, The Facts of Life and cocktails almost as much as he hates your baby.
