About Melissa Diaz
New York native Melissa Diaz grew up in a small, immigrant neighborhood in the North Bronx where she’d make up stories and plays for her friends and family, which were supposed to be very serious, extremely epic tragedies, that everyone cracked up at instead. Now, as an adult, she talks about how to overcome the patriarchy and embrace anarchy, while patrons drink beer and laugh in her face. Melissa currently studies sketch and improv at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater, writes short stories on Tumblr that nobody reads. and co-produces two comedy shows: Bunga’s Den every first and third Wednesday of the month, and a monthly comedy/variety showcase at New York Comedy Club, every second friday of the week.
