Cody Melcher is not only a lexicographic snake-oil salesman, but a witwanton and literary gentleman. On stage, he weaves a tapestry of obscure observations and personal proclivities designed to delight and enlighten.
He is the producer of 100 Proof Comedy at ComedySportz Chicago and hosts the podcast Tomefoolery. He has performed all over the country and in festivals such as The Milwaukee Comedy Festival, SF Sketchfest, Black Box Comedy Festival in Atlanta, The Out of Bounds Comedy Festival in Austin, and was a finalist in Outloud Chicago and The Advocate's National Queer Comedy Search.
The Chicago Tribune has called him "ridiculously zesty".
