A Pregnant Pause.
Sometimes pregnancy doesn’t end in a joyous celebration and tears of happiness. For comedian, Melissa Bangs, ending up in a psych ward for nearly a month after the birth of her daughter was the last thing she expected. As a former student member at the Upright Citizens Brigade in New York, Melissa has a knack for transforming her pain into humor.
On her journey to healing after her psych ward release, Melissa read through her hospital records. She discovered a nurse’s note reading, “Patient says she will do comedy on this experience.” And comedy, she did.
On May 17th, the American Movie Company captures Melissa’s brave story with a live global WebCast of her one-woman stand up, “Playing Monopoly with God and Other Stories.” In this unique performance, Bangs turns the most painful experience of her life into a hilarious, authentic story of healing. Melissa has a knack for effortlessly guiding the audience to understanding something unimaginable.
Join Melissa on her journey of truth-telling, hilarity, and vulnerability as she transforms her darkest times into a room full of laughter.
