Eric Loya- Writer
Eric Loya is one of the very few native Southern Californians. He grew up in places that those not in the know have never heard of but have fun saying, like West Covina, La Verne and Rancho Cucamonga. He made the move to LA proper a few years back, and has since kept very busy. He’s appeared in many student films. The less said about those, the better. He’s also appeared on stage at Straitjacket Society, No Shame Theater, and ACME Comedy Theater. His writing has been featured in the Cricket Feet Showcase as well as, obviously, every episode of “Robot, Ninja & Gay Guy.” He is also one of the writer/performers of the web series, “The Best Friend.” He’s having a blast popping up all over the internet, as it’s the first step toward his ultimate goal of taking over the… pie. Uh, he meant to say “making pie” and nothing more.
