Creator: Eddie Deezen
Edward Harry Deezen (originally spelled "Dezen") is an American character actor, voice-over actor, writer, and comedian. He was a class clown in school, and as an adult originally had aspirations of becoming a stand-up comedian. He moved from his hometown of Cumberland, Maryland to Hollywood within days of graduating high school. He performed several times at the The Comedy Store before abandoning stand-up to concentrate on acting. His last appearance as a stand-up comedian was on The Gong Show, where he was gonged by singer-songwriter Paul Williams.

Since then, Eddie has made a living out of being the quintessential nerd, starting with his first big role, Eugene in Grease. From that start, he went on to play nerds, geeks, and spazzes in such films as Grease 2, Midnight Madness, 1941 and WarGames. He also had larger roles (and occasionally starring roles) in a number of independent cult films, including Surf II: The End of the Trilogy, Mob Boss, I Wanna Hold Your Hand, Beverly Hills Vamp, Teenage Exorcist, and of course, I Love You, Eddie Deezen, wherein he not only got to play himself, he got to play himself as a romantic lead.

As a voice actor, his voice is high-pitched, nasally voice is easily recognized. He has voiced Mandark from Dexter's Laboratory, Snipes the Magpie in Rock-a-Doodle, Ned in Kim Possible, and Lenny the Know-It-All in The Polar Express.

Eddie Deezen is also One of Us. In addition to being the world's biggest fan of The Beatles (a claim that he has successfully defended several times) he is a pop-culture expert of monumental proportions. Since 2011, Eddie has been a contributing writer for mental floss, TodayIFoundOut.com and Neatorama.com, concentrating on not only The Beatles, but on baseball, American history, and classic comedy acts like Laurel and Hardy, the Marx Brothers, the Three Stooges, and Martin and Lewis.

Eddie Deezen is a genuinely nice guy who takes care to give back to his fans, with whom he has a surprisingly open and casual relationship over social media networks like Facebook.
