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. 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 try and connect with people. Her dry wit and unique perspective on life make her a hit with audiences everywhere.
Melissa has performed at several comedy festivals, including the Sacramento Comedy Festival, the Oakland Comedy Festival, and the Laugh Riot Grrrl Festival in LA. She also co-produces the Moving Van Show, a monthly, secret pop-up comedy show. Earlier this year, Melissa co-produced Sacramento FemmeFest, the city's first all-female comedy festival. Most recently, she was voted the #1 comedian by the Sacramento News & Review.
