New Orleans native, Lyric, was teased with the nickname “motormouth” due to her incessant prating, which often created a humorous effect. Since a young age, she has had a knack for comedy. In 2000, she became one of the few Afro-American members to be a part of The Groundlings, LA’s renowned sketch comedy troupe. She joined the group as a student and still plays an active role in it. Classically a trained theatre Major student, Lyric imbibed the many teachings of Syracuse University and put them to her professional use. She has showcased her masterful talent in television series like ‘In Living Color’ and ‘Saturday Night Live.’
Lyric Lewis’ Husband and Kid
The ‘A.P. Bio’ star has always kept her private life concealed from the public eye. The rumors of her engagement to her longtime boyfriend, Ben Lepley, have been floating around since forever. She reportedly posted a picture of her engagement ring in July 2017, but the post has now been taken down. The caption also hinted at her plans to walk down the aisle shortly.
Lyric confirmed most of the speculations this year through her Instagram captions. In her posts, she mentioned dating her boyfriend since the age of 17 and along with the fact that he is not active on any social media platform.
