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 also co-produces the Moving Van Show, a pop-up comedy show that was awarded “Best DIY comedy on the go”, by the Sacramento News & Review. Most recently, she co-produced Sacramento FemmeFest, the city's first all-female comedy festival.
