JANEANE GAROFALO, the petite woman with the acerbic wit, had many jobs before breaking into show biz. She worked as a bike messenger, a shoe salesperson (no doubt with Al Bundy's disposition), waitress and temp secretary. Watching David Letterman on TV inspired her, and by 1985 she was doing stand up comedy. Science broadcaster and writer JAY INGRAM was co-host of Discovery Channel's science show, Daily Planet for 16 years. From 1979 to 1992, Ingram hosted CBC Radio's Quirks and Quarks and earned two ACTRA Awards, including Best Host. DON COSCARELLI, in much the same way that director George A. Romero's creative output has been primarily centered around the highly successful "Dead" series of zombie films, has for over two decades seen his universe swirling around the lesser successful, but equally cult, and much loved "Phantasm" series of horror movies.
