Lucy Porter is an eternal optimist, despite having spent the first half of her life thinking she would be a politician. Realizing the impact of a powerful story, she pivoted to harness her ability to deconstruct systematic issues through humor to amplify marginalized voices.
Striking the balance between slapstick and satire, her female-driven comedies explore the paradoxes of humanity through whimsically irreverent characters and rapid-fire punchlines.
Lucy is an alum of Second City's Comedy Studies program and a graduate of DePaul University's MFA Screenwriting program.
