Mel is a bottled fight waiting to erupt. She’s a tough, volatile loner who lives in outer borough NYC with her mother. Mel’s one outlet is through stand up comedy, which she sees as her only viable escape from her bleak existence. She misguidedly seeks validation and acceptance from a crew of misogynistic male comedians and is determined to make her mark as she navigates the late night, off the grid open mic scene.
