Melissa McGillicuddy is a stand-up comedian based in Sacramento, California. As a newcomer to the scene in 2015, she won the Wildcard Competition at the Sacramento Comedy Festival. Since then, Melissa has continued to perform at comedy festivals including SF Sketchfest, the Oakland Comedy Festival, and the NY Underground Comedy Festival. She has also opened for talented comedians such as Cameron Esposito, RB Butcher, and Vicki Barbolak.
Being an only (and super gay) child raised by a single mom in a conservative town, Melissa found she didn’t always fit in, so she used humor as a way to connect with people. Her dry wit and unique perspective on life make her a hit with audiences everywhere.
Melissa also co-produces the Moving Van Show, a monthly, secret pop-up comedy show, as well as Sacramento FemmeFest, the city's first all-female comedy festival. Most recently, Melissa was voted best comedian by the Sacramento News & Review.
