Rae Benjamin

Rae Benjamin is a comedy writer and Los Angeles native. Her mother encouraged her writing from a young age and gave booklets of her poetry and short stories as Christmas gifts each year. This was either super cute or super cheap, depending on who you ask. Rae is the founder of In the Cut, an organization dedicated to increasing transparency for Black creatives and other marginalized communities. In the Cut has produced a variety of low and no-cost training with writers, producers and directors from shows like INSECURE, SNOWFALL, MARVEL'S HAWKEYE, GREY'S ANATOMY, and many more. Recently, Rae was the writer's assistant on BRIDGERTON and the script coordinator on THE WITCHER. She is currently the script coordinator on the upcoming comedy OUR FLAG MEANS DEATH from EP and director Taika Waititi and is writing an anime film for NETFLIX.
