Hello, we are Melon Comedy
We’re a global gaggle of writers, performers & recovering advertising creatives. First started in 2017 by author Lorelei Mathias, we’ve been making award-winning, silly short films from Melbourne to London, about the madness of the modern world. For us, Comedy is the best meds. And we should know, we’ve tried everything else on the NHS. Read about us in The Guardian here, and The Beeb.
