About

Melinda Hill is an award-winning comedian, writer, and actress who has worked with many of the greats including Cameron Crowe, Kristen Wiig, Maria Bamford, Sarah Silverman, Nick Swardson, and Robin Williams. LA Weekly says Melinda Hill’s “bubbly, adorable persona belies outlandish comedy” 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. Basically she delivers smart satire on a sparkle rainbow.

Some credits include the Emmy and Peabody award-winning series Adventure Time, viral hit Confessions of a Tooth Fairy with Kristen Wiig, “Melania Trump’s Cousins” with EG Daily, Netflix’s Lady Dynamite, the JJ Abrams series Roadies, and Comedy Central shows Reno 911, 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. She has written and directed projects for Super Deluxe, Huffington Post Comedy, and Channel 101, and her pilot was featured in Variety’s “top female-written pilots” on the 2017 WriteHer list.
