is creating global sketches about melancholy things

About Melon Comedy

Hello and thank you for visiting Melon Comedy - A bit melancholy, a bit silly, we're a team of funny, neuro-diverse strangers thrown together by serendipity and a love of comedy.

Melon is a global collective run by author & comedy writer Lorelei Mathias. Our main performers are: Emmy McMorrow, Lorelei Mathias, Sarah Smart, Michael Spicer, Sarah Callaghan, Yasser Kayani, Jonathan Hansler, Joe Davies, Pam Rana, Josh Glanc, Urvi Majumdar, Dave Callan, Nathalie Turton, Ed Lear, Marek Larwood... AND…the internet’s most famous rat. Future sketches involve Mawaan Rizwan, Garry Starr, Masud Milas and Sukh Ojla, with access to many more cast through @LemonComedy, our diverse live night.

Our first sketch was the reality TV spoof GhosterBusters, which has screened in London's Angel Comedy and in Melbourne. We've since made a bunch of others including this one for World Mental Health Day this one about plastic pollution: The Litter Mermaid.

We made them all on a shoestring. Well, more like the bit of plastic on the end of a shoe-string. In a dream world we'd love to keep our actors and crew paid, or at least watered and fed!

We have hours and hours worth of sketches still in script form... so we'd love funding/sponsors so we can afford to film more. And also so we can pay a social media person cos we suck at this sharing stuff! Seriously:  we've made this page, but then not shared it anywhere so it will probably stay unloved forever!

Thank you for your cash monies:
£1-100 buys us enough to feed the crew, and you your name in the credits, and suggestions for any of the storylines.

£150 helps us TAKE DOWN THE PESKY ALGORE-RITHM so people ca actually see our films on Facebook and Youtube (in other words, we'll pay to 'boost' our videos so people can see it.

£250 buys more urgent scientific research into the damaging effects that Ghost Traumatic Stress Disorder has on the brain, in conjunction with a team of Professors at Oxford Brookes University.

£500 buys us some scuba diving gear and a boat trip, so we can go out and catch all those pesky Submariners.

£1000 buys you a walk on part, a producer credit, and a meet & greet with the Melon Comedy creative team & actors. And of course one big metaphorical big hug full of love & gratitude. And Karma. Loads of Karma, (which we all know, is a bitch)

Thank you love you bye!

Lorelei Mathias, and the rest of the MelonHeads
