is a Chicago native. After earning her degrees from the University of Houston, she returned home to join Teatro Luna, Chicago’s all-Latina theatre company.
She developed her one-woman show, SEXomedy, during Teatro Luna’s series of One Night Stands, which showcases women of color in the arts. The Chicago Reader called SEXomedy “as necessary as it is transgressive.”
Ms. DuPrey is also a comedian that has performed in various venues throughout Chicago, and is very proud to have gotten her start with Mikey O Productions. As a musician and active member of her community, she is blessed to have the continuous support of her family and friends.
Melissa continues to create and produce projects that fuse elements of theatrical story-telling with stand-up comedy.
