Melissa started comedy at the legendary Rascal's Comedy Club in New Jersey because of a friend's dare. She's had the good fortune to perform at some of her favorite clubs such as Stand Up New York and Caroline's.
She's the smart-ass in her big, loud, drunken Irish family and was always the class clown. She had trouble taking her teachers seriously, mostly because they were sober. She was happy go lucky, which led to getting her lucky, which led to getting her pregnant. Twice.
She currently resides in Louisville, KY where she raises her two sons, whom have both helped to stalwart would could have been an illustrious comedy career. She lovingly reminds her sons of that fact often, to which they remind her back of various other personality flaws she possesses that contribute to that factor.
She's been the lead in several plays in the last decade and has a strong appreciation for both stand-up comedy, sketch comedy and theater. Having worked in the theater, she's often deprecating actors and actresses themselves. Musical theater enthusiasts...don't even get her started.
