“Romantic Encounters” is a new comedy from stand-up Melinda Hill that premieres today on My Damn Channel. Produced and written by, and starring Hill, the show “chronicles a series of botched attempts at landing a soul mate.” It is based on elements of her stand-up routine. Alongside Hill, the show is produced by Adam Scott Franklin and Jason Cilo, and stars Dana Gould, Steve Little, Carlos Alazraqui, Drew Droege, and Bryan Callen.
Hill is a veteran stand-up, having performed around the world. She is also an alum of the legendary Groundlings improv and sketch comedy troupe in LA. There, she wrote and performed in a number of sketches and shows, including this one, the “Confessions of a Tooth Fairy” sketch, which she co-wrote and starred with some woman named Kristen Wiig.
