Marie Lively prefers “29 and holding”, a term she heard from her mother growing up. However, she loves the wisdom that is coming with her age. A comedian, improviser and performer she enjoys making people laugh above all else. She currently resides in Los Angeles, CA and has decided she is in her car too much. She spends her time performing improv with various teams and people she has met through the Upright Citizens Brigade community. She is also an active member of Brimmer Street Theatre Company, a non-profit theatre company named after the acting program’s old brownstone at her Alma Mater, Emerson College. She has circumnavigated the globe with the Semester at Sea program and is very involved with alumni relations. She speaks fluent German and Spanglish. When she’s not figuring out how to bend time and space to be in ten places at once, she is enjoying the company of friends, and probably a nice glass of wine. She loves biology and pie.
