Logline: The love algorithms predicted Pietre and Irene would be a 98% match. They’re equally smug, frugal jerks with radical politics and twisted fantasies. Together, they’ll learn that they are many things, but they are in love most of all.

About Onicia Muller

Onicia Muller is a Caribbean-born storyteller who is currently freezing her buns off in Chicago. She gave up crime reporting to sling jokes, write scripts, and compose quotable bathroom prose (i.e., funny cards) for American Greetings and Papyrus. That’s about all she can do with an M.F.A. in screenwriting from Northwestern University.

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

(Rebellious Magazine) In 2018, IGNITE Caribbean granted her their 30 Under 30 award for her work as a cultural influencer. That year, Women In Comedy also named her a funny female comic to follow in Chicago.

From February 2017 to June 2021, Onicia authored a syndicated, weekly humor column, ‘Just Being Funny,’ which is best described as chicken soup for the naive skeptic’s soul. She uses compelling characters and stories to achieve world domination — um — to encourage empathy and understanding.
