Onicia Muller at the kates by Laurie Fanelli

Onicia Muller is a Caribbean-born storyteller who is currently freezing her buns off in Chicago. This award-winning writer gave up crime reporting to sling jokes, write scripts, and compose quotable bathroom prose (i.e., funny cards) for American Greetings. She’s hustling hard to get the most out of her M.F.A in screenwriting from Northwestern University.

“A ray of sunshine with a dark sense of humour, Onicia Muller knows how to weave a hilarious tale about the human condition with a thoughtfulness that demands deep consideration.” – Rebellious Magazine

Since 2011, Onicia has been a consistent source for culture and entertainment commentary. Just Being Funny is her second long-running column for The Daily Herald. Her comedy speaks to politically-active Caribbean Millennials and Gen-Xers.

“I love how grounded in everyday experience your humour is, it’s very relatable and makes me feel less crazy <3” – Maya Montrell, Millennial
