Funny Human of the Day: it’s like Funny Human of the Week, but more! This week, we’re telling you about the myriad funny people coming to town this weekend for the District of Comedy festival at the Kennedy Center. Today I’m here to talk to you about Melissa Villaseñor, Saturday Night Live cast member and extremely funny comedian who you’ll get to see as a part of the festival’s celebration of women in comedy. Let’s watch Melissa in an SNL sketch from earlier this year to start us out, it’s such a dumb, goofy thing.
Melissa’s also a real fun standup to watch live, here’s a clip from a few years ago, where she does a handful of impressions while also getting personal, it’s great!
Here’s a nice pre-SNL sketch she put up online a few years back, it’s a good old fashioned two hander, featuring a pair of musical cowboys!
Our friend Melissa brings a nice video presence to the unending hellscape that is Twitter in 2018, peppering in mini-sketches and impressions between regular jokes and show plugs! Let’s look:

Went to zumba with my Mom. She noticed my hairy armpits and got embarrassed.

On our way out, let’s take a trip down memory lane, looking at one of Melissa’s first brushes with stardom: an appearance on America’s Got Talent back in 2011! How far she’s come!
