Timothy Michael Cooper (Moderator/Filmmaker)
Timothy Michael Cooper graduated with a philosophy degree from Yale University, which somehow led to him training, performing, and directing at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, where he created various shows starring John Mulaney, Thomas Middleditch, Pete Holmes, and others. He wrote and directed the short comedy Lemon, starring Jennifer Westfeldt and Noah Bean, which premiered at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival.
He was nominated for a Writers Guild Award for writing and directing the episodic comedy Concierge: The Series, starring Kate McKinnon. He wrote the feature drama Away From Here, starring Nick Stahl, Alicia Witt, and Ray Wise, and has written monologue jokes and sketches for hosts Lewis Black, Colin Quinn, Larry Wilmore, and Michael Ian Black at the past four Writers Guild Awards.
A proud member of the Writers Guild of America East and the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective Writers’ Workshop, Timothy is currently preparing to direct the feature version of Lemon, in addition to developing multiple pilots and features with a variety of production companies.
