Manolo is an animator and comedian who took part in a guided meditation where he was supposed to meet with a spirit elder for life advice, but all the spirit elder said to him was, "work on your website" (I swear this is true). Also, just imagine how well the qualities of a comedian with a knowledge of joke writing and a unique point of view would mesh with an animator's strong knowledge of visual storytelling would be. Also he was born in Pennsylvania and has Filipino parents. As a comedian, he's a co-host/Jo Firestone sidekick on cult favorite podcast, Dr. Gameshow, of WFMU, Earwolf, and Maximum Fun fame. He also performed at some places like Gotham Comedy Club, UCB, Union Hall, Littlefield, and DaF Festival; and as an animator, his work has been featured on Vulture, Abrams, IFC, Comedy Central, New York Television Festival, Sundance Film Festival, and maybe others, who knows.
