Melanie won her 5th grade spelling bee and can play the harmonica with her nose, which are arguably the most important things to know about her. On-screen, Melanie portrayed Helen in Sundance Grand Jury Award winner The Miseducation of Cameron Post, Ali on The OA (Netflix), and most recently Meg, Lil Dicky’s number one fan, on DAVE (FX/Hulu). Behind the mic, Melanie voiced a singing bison (yes, really) on Disney Junior’s P. KINGDUCKLING, a loving orc wife in Adult Swim Games’ BATTLECHEFBRIGADE, and the titular character in FRUMGIRLADVENTURES. Melanie makes her Hollywood Fringe Festival debut with Eyshet F***ing Chayil, which she wrote after getting tired of waiting for Hollywood to write roles for Korean-speaking Jewish women.
The Korean drum she plays in the show is called a janggoo and it’s really really cool.
