Angel Borths, much like a stray puppy, has never before stayed in one place for more than 3 years. She has finally found her forever home in Tampa and with Nine and Numb. Angel is a career arts educator and magnet school guru by day and answers to "Mommy" at night. As often as her busy schedule allows, Angel performs with local community theatres/groups and teaches acting workshops for kids.


John was born in Birmingham, Alabama, temporarily lived in Richmond, Virginia and Lexington, Kentucky before settling in Tampa at the age of five. John studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and trained and performed with the sketch/improv troupe The Groundlings in Los Angeles. John is also an ambulatory sack of sometimes-useful information regarding his other interests: cartoons, comics, animation and Muppets. Thanks for still reading this

Eric is a member of an ancient race of wise, sentient trees. Of course, we have no proof of this, but until he submits his bio for the website, you'll just have to believe us.



Lupita is the newest member of Nine and Numb. She doesn't have a bio yet, so we'll make one for her.

Lupita was sent to this planet as an emissary to negotiate peace in the galaxy sometime in the mid-1980's, but was sidetracked by Dollar Long Island Teas Night on Clearwater Beach. She recently reawakened after being buried in the sand for over 30 years by a nice German family on vacation and has decided to ditch her official mandate in favor of comedic shenanigans. 

That's our story and we're sticking to it until she corrects us.
