If you like comedy, therapy, and #poignancy, then you’ll love today’s conversation with award-winning comedian, actress and writer, Melinda Hill. She uses laughter as medicine in Inappropriate, her new comedy special about moving from trauma bonding to trauma mending. Melinda and I hopped right into the deep end of the pool with our conversation and covered creative process, her podcast, and the value of sharing things on stage that most people would never tell a soul.
Melinda Hill is an award-winning comedian, actress and writer. Her special and her podcast LET’S PROCESS THIS explore turning trauma into creative treasure by rewriting narratives, and the inspiring journeys of her creative guests who’ve done so. Melinda can be seen in the upcoming romantic comedy Love, Weddings and Other Disasters opposite Diane Keaton and Jeremy Irons, the Emmy and Peabody winning series Adventure Time, Netflix’s Lady Dynamite, as well as appearances on NBC, CBS, FOX, Showtime, Comedy Central’s Reno 911, Sarah Silverman Program and more.
