ANA - 40s - 50s. Latina. Louie's housekeeper. Has worked for him forever, and totally understands him but hardly a word of English. Outrageously funny, and often politically incorrect. Needs to carry a tune.

LEO - 40s - late 50s. Louie's dead father. Younger than you would expect, because the audience sees him as Louie remembers him. Funny.
