The Hosts

Michael R. Carlson has been to Disneyland 110 times in 9 years. His brain is a bottomless pit for kitsch, nostalgia and hillbilly robot bears singing country songs. When he’s not hurling money at a faceless multi-national corporation, he writes and acts in Los Angeles. You’ve probably seen him in things like Netflix’s “Handsome” or products’ “commercials.”

Scott Gairdner has snuck many theme park references into his work at Conan, Funny Or Die, and his animated series Moonbeam City. He is a former Universal Studios tour guide. His gender-neutral uniform khakis still fit.

Jason Sheridan is a writer and performer in Los Angeles. More importantly, he is a former Disney Vacation Club member. He hopes to one day own a home in Walt Disney World’s Golden Oaks neighborhood. Maybe you’ve seen him at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre Los Angeles. Or in the movie, The Circle. His dad sure has!
