LA Weekly says Melinda Hill’s “bubbly, adorable persona belies outlandish funny” while Laughspin calls her “a wonderfully prolific, whip-smart comedian.” She’s been described as a “dynamic triple threat” who’s “mastered the art of humorous incongruity” with “deceptively demure faux-cluelessness” by Maui Aloha Update, Chicago NewCity Stage, and Las Vegas City Life.
Combining physical comedy, storytelling and impressions, she’s known for her wide range of characters on the Emmy and Peabody award-winning series Adventure Time, the viral hit Confessions of a Tooth Fairy with Kristen Wiig, and her bitingly satirical web series Melania Trump’s Cousins with EG Daily. Other credits include Netflix’s Lady Dynamite, the Cameron Crowe / JJ Abrams series Roadies, and Comedy Central shows Reno 911, The Sarah Silverman Program, Nick Swardson’s Pretend Time, and Important Things with Demetri Martin. Her stand-up has been featured on The Late Late Show, The Bonnie Hunt Show, BBC’s The World Stands Up, Comics Unleashed, Who Wants To Date a Comedian, StandUp In Stilettos, and Comedy TV among others. She’s performed for troops in Hawaii, Guam, Singapore, Japan, Honduras, Curacao, Bahamas, Guantanomo Bay and Greenland.
As a writer she’s created, written, and starred in four digital series which have garnered millions of views on multiple platforms. Her web series The Program, co-created with Maria Bamford and produced by Funny or Die, was named one of LA Weekly’s “10 best web series of 2014” while her series Romantic Encounters with Melinda Hill was recognized for “outstanding acting and writing in a comedy series” by LA Weekly Web Awards, LA Web Fest, IndieWire, and LA Film Fest. It was later acquired for international distribution in 50 countries and is now being developed into a feature film. She has written and directed projects for Super Deluxe, Huffington Post Comedy and Channel 101. Her pilot was featured in Variety’s “top female-written pilots” on the 2017 WriteHer list.
