Cody Melcher is a witwanton and literary gentleman who weaves a tapestry of obscure observations and personal proclivities designed to delight and enlighten.
Based in Chicago, he is the producer of 100 Proof Comedy at ComedySportz, host of the critically-acclaimed podcast Tomefoolery and intellectual exploration show Pedantry, and is Khan of the comedy production company See Every Monster.
He has opened for such fantastic comedians as Mark Normand, W. Kamau Bell, and Stewart Huff, and in festivals such as SF Sketchfest, The Comedy Exposition of 2014, and Snubfest. He headlined The 2014 Chicago Nerd Comedy Festival and in 2013 was a finalist in Outloud Chicago and The Advocate’s National Queer Comedy Search.
He was once given the title “Best Comedian With an Encyclopedic Point Of Reference That Also Includes The Facts Behind the Cottingley Fairies Hoax” by Dan Telfer.
The Chicago Tribune has called him “ridiculously zesty.”
