Hey there people!

"Real Girl" will be a series about a lost comedian (me- Melissa Villaseñor) trying to find who she is on/off stage without doing voices. It's taken from my path in comedy as an impressionist. This series couldn't be more honest. In my "real" life as well as in this series, I am on the edge of breaking free and becoming me. I want to rid of my impressions and find my own point of view as a stand-up comedian (as all the greats have).  I've always been accused of my stand-up not being real stand-up. But what is real? If I make them laugh, then that's a comedian right? Like the olden days right? Isn't that enough?

With your help we can make this honest and funny series come to life. 

Let's do this!

Love,

Melissa Villaseñor & Wendy McColm

Risks and challenges

The risks that I see for this project is really that I'm putting myself out there in the most vulnerable way when people see me already in a certain light. But I just am so excited for something real and special to me to share with you and I would love to have as many people, you, involved!
