Lucy Porter is a Chicago-based writer and comedian with big camp counselor energy.
Striking the balance between slapstick and satire, her female-driven comedies harness the accessibility of comedy to bring the light to issues like wealth disparity, systematic privilege, and institutional injustice.
From TV to sketch, her work explores the paradoxes of humanity through whimsically irreverent characters and rapid-fire punchlines.
Lucy recently graduated with an MFA in screenwriting from DePaul University and is an alum of Second City's Comedy Studies program.
