We’re Liv and Alex! We’re graduates from NYU’s Tisch school of the arts — Liv majored in Film & TV and Alex in Drama. We founded Ridiculous People in college, first as a collective of creative women looking to create forward-thinking and funny content, then slowly becoming a full-fledged production company.
Liv was born in DC and grew up all over the world — from Munich to London to China to Palo Alto. She speaks four languages and values herself as a strong communicator. She’s a writer, director, editor, and designer currently working in late-night. She also watches international soccer, advocates for racial equality and immigrant rights, and writes fiction, non-fiction, and whichever category news falls under these days.
Alex Shannon is a writer, actor and producer based in the Bushwick-y part of Queens. Alex wrote and directed “OPEN” – the first episode of her female-centric web series about millennial romance, set to premiere in 2018. Her play Water Strider/Jesus Bug was chosen runner-up for the 2017 Judith Barlow Prize national playwriting competition and she’s a regular contributor to political docu-zine Femme Mâché.
