Comedienne Melinda Hill has had some funny experiences in her love life. Said experiences have inspired her to create and Romantic Encounters, stories of Melinda’s search for the right guy that may or may not be entirely true. (They probably aren’t true.)
Melinda always means well. She’s a caring, giving person. Unfortunately, those qualities also lead (fictional) Melinda to over-aggressive stalker tendencies that result in tears, a false engagement and an epic fail of an attempt at the Marilyn Monroe Birthday Cake Surprise. Though failed attempts to impress and apparent poor taste in men lead her to come up empty in her search, she perseveres through each busted relationship, still optimistic she’ll land the right guy for her.
Melinda allows her torture to be your fun as her painfully awkward and funny gags take relationship analogies to a new level. Her dating woes are easily empathized with by anyone who’s ever experienced relationship awkwardness and her raunchy sense of humor is appropriate for both men and women.
Fully funded by a Kickstarter campaign, Romantic Encounters premiered on My Damn Channel in June. Check out new episodes premiering weekly.
