About Drew Beausoleil CEO of Inside the Game – I’m a gamer first and foremost. I have been my entire life. It’s why I do what I do, talk to friends, family, even complete strangers about video games. This is my passion! I have been pushing my way into the video game industry since 2012 and never looked back. Covering everything and anything I can to be involved in one way or another with this industry. My own gaming news website, YouTube channel, TV Show, it didn’t matter I just want to talk about the very industry I love, with whoever would like to listen. I have had a lot of help along the way and met a lot of very incredible people who have brought me to where I am today. The future of this industry is bright and with my crew, I am very excited to watch us grow.

Cosmic Wink. Everything you ever wanted to know about Scott Yaphe, Uh-Oh, the entertainment business (at least through my eyes) and metaphysics. Scott is a Canadian actor and comedian best known for being a cast member on YTV’s variety show It’s Alive! After its cancellation in 1997, Yaphe and a few other It’s Alive! regulars such as Mike Beaver and Patricia Ribeiro, moved over to the game show Uh Oh!, where he became the host by his fictional name, “Wink Yahoo”. Yaphe appeared in the movie Amelia in the third quarter of 2009, as well as in the recurring role of Sliver in the second season of Disney XD’s, Aaron Stone and as Zafer Griffin in the new Cartoon Network live-action series, Unnatural History. He can also be seen in the ABC police drama Rookie Blue which began in 2010.

At the conclusion of this panel 6 guests will be randomly selected from the crowd to compete for prizes in a NGE style game show Inspired by Scott Yaphe’s role in Uh-oh. Since Scott does not perform any more we brought in a special host for this game show. Sudbury’s own G-rant, from the New Hot 93.5.
