Margaux Poupard is a Bay Area based writer. She has won Best Comedy TV Pilot for her script But I’m a Child Star at the LA Comedy Festival, and Comedy Hack Day at SketchFest with her team, Well Deserved.

A self proclaimed French valley girl from the same hometown as Ron Howard and Edward Scissorhands — Burbank, she began writing concert reviews for the SF Examiner. Margaux has also been a contributing writer with: The Bold Italic, Thrillist, KQED Pop, and 7x7.

With her background in film, and film production, Margaux has worked on the sets of music videos, reality television, and one questionable dog-centric feature.

As a result, she co-founded Ocelot Webworks, a full service independent production company. Through Ocelot she wrote and produced two successful web series, dozens of sketches, and shorts. They were invited as finalists to present at the Digital Hollywood Content Summit.

 

Currently, Margaux writes and teaches sketch comedy at Killing My Lobster, and is otherwise a freelance writer at large. You can follow on her on Medium where she promises she’ll post more soon, and on Twitter, where she swears she’s going to delete her account one day, but that day isn’t today.

Margaux is the co-host of Old Millennials, a deep dive podcast on shallow topics from the late 90s-early 00s; Old Millennials can be found wherever podcast are heard.

Other work includes:
