Melissa Story

Melissa's hilarious take on single parenthood is capturing the hearts and imaginations of audiences and producers. She stumbled into comedy in her early years as an effort to make sense of her wild thoughts. Years later, these carefully honed skills serve as a source of income and a way to make connections with people through comedy.

Melissa is a comedian, writer and actor who is also known as the co-creator of the sketch series 'Sex and the Single Parent', which has been nominated for two Canadian Comedy Awards and is a great success on the website 'Funny or Die', boasting over 3 million views. Her 'Sex and the Single Parent' podcast is a fan favorite and has recently been picked up by the eOne network. Melissa was invited to Just For Laughs in 2017 when her pilot was selected for CBC's 'Stand Up and Pitch' contest and she is very proud to have been selected to perform at Halifax Comedy Festival this year (2018) for a CBC taping of her latest act.

Watch out for Melissa Story, she’s a firecracker (a nickname given to her by her ex before he received superficial burns) and she’s ready to take the world by storm as her talent has been contained for far too long while focusing on raising her son. Now that she has 50/50 custody and access to sitters she has the time to take to the stage and shout from the rooftops. Get. Ready. To. Laugh!
