An accomplished director, writer, and performer, Kevin has won multiple Student Emmys for his work both in front of and behind the camera. Kevin brings years of improv comedy experience to the role of Fake Stan, as well as a deep love for the comics medium - as he is also a self-published cartoonist.
Since moving to Los Angeles eight years ago, Tim has made a career doing things that most fanboys would would kill to call their job. From playing the character Gamertag on G4's "X-Play" to taking comedic pot-shots at the world of porn on PlayboyTV's "The Stash" he's been lucky enough to find writing/producing gigs where having a blast is just part of the job. Of course, the world of comics is the next logical step and Tim couldn't be happier to be aboard the TWIC team.
Alan is an actor and freelance writer living in New York. Recognized as a comic book historian by comic book companies and major media outlets, he is also the creator and host of the web-series and podcast Crazy Sexy Geeks.
Jake has worked in comics, film, and television for a bit of time now, mostly writing/producing serious stuff, but occasionally comedy. He's currently a writer/producer on something comic-booky on the television and, why yes, that is a pseudonym.
Fake Stan Lee is the creation of veteran improv comedian Kevin McShane. Originally performed for Kevin's fellow cartoonists, Fake Stan Lee found a life of his own when Kevin took a camera with him to ComicCon one year. From there, Fake Stan blossomed into a cult internet sensation - starring in a popular series of annual ComicCon videos. In 2010, Fake Stan Lee met the Real Stan Lee in an earth-shattering meeting of the minds (see below). The Real Stan was delighted by Fake Stan, and remains in touch with him today.
