"Having a sense of humor is mandatory when you’re a parent. Mel & El agree." Full story.
The New York Times
"The outrageous routines of Mel & El...bring down the house."
The Village Voice
"...Hilariously squirm-inducing...we feel like they're our best friends, too. We haven't had so much fun since seventh-grade sleepovers."
New York Post
"Mel & El seem ready for prime time...the outrageous duo are letting it rip in their new musical comedy show."
"MEL & EL is a hoot....Their sensibility isn't just to skip down memory lane but to cut up. It's for them to be their irreverent, idiosyncratic, devoted selves."
"These two bitches are hilarious!"
"Mel and El have crack comic timing and display genuine musical comedy chops.... It's like kiddie TV for adults."
Elisa Valentino Levine
"The Mommy Show is refreshing and entertaining. Ninety minutes of hearty laughter and 'mommy validation' in this off-color, spot-on, campy account of life as a mom. Whether you are a parent - mom or dad; a child of a parent; or simply observe the art of parenting around you - the experience is uplifting."
"Move over Kathy & Mo....the likable pair...are pop-culture-obsessed pals that bitch, bicker and belt catchy songs.... You’ve seen self-deprecating characters like these before—think Heidi and Susan in [title of show]—but rarely with chemistry this infectious."
Gorgeous Ladies of Comedy
"Real life besties Mel & El are brassy, and funny - these ladies can sing!"
John Cameron Mitchell
"Mel and El are twin daughters of different mothers -- spooky telepathic funny and they crack my shit up."
"Mel & El grabbed me by the ovaries the minute I walked in. A girl-culture bonanza that totally affirms why keeping close to your best friend is the best decision a city gal can make."
"We're kvelling! Seriously. Word to the wise: book them; You'll want to say you saw them when."
