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.


She holds an MFA in screenwriting from DePaul University and is an alum of Second City’s Comedy Studies program.

As a screenwriter, her scripts have received notoriety placing in Screencraft’s Comedy Competition, Final Draft’s Big Break, and as an official selection for SeriesFest’s Pitch-a-Thon.

When you’re fat and funny, and a community theater child star, you spend a lifetime playing mothers and villains. Lucky for Lucy Porter, this had absolutely no impact on her psyche what-so-ever! But now, she’s had enough.

Lucy’s Fringe debut unites original songs, stand-up comedy, and stunning dresses in a bold solo cabaret that examines what it means to finally cast yourself as the ingénue.
