What I liked

Melissa is bold, funny, sharp, and endearing. The concept for this show is downright GENIUS, and she goes all in with telling/singing her stories to her beanie babies. I felt as if WE were the beanie babies getting a lesson from our 2kool 4skool baby sitter who just loves her period and has no shame.

What I didn't like

There were some technical errors that occurred beyond anyone’s real control, but Melissa handled it like SUCH A PRO. She made the flubs part of her act, which made her show feel more human and relatable.

My overall impression

Audacious, outrageous, enlightening. This was exactly how I wanted to spend my Wednesday night!
