Budd Friedman and Mark Lonow, co-owners of The Improv at Harrah’s Las Vegas, are proud to introduce very special guest comedian and voice impressionist Melissa Villasenor to the Improv stage September 6-11, joining headliner Rocky LaPorte and opening act Ron Morey.
Villasenor was a semi-finalist on this season of NBC’s hit show “America’s Got Talent” where she took America by storm with her spot-on impressions and unique sense of humor.
A native of Los Angeles, Villasenor realized her knack for impressions at the ripe age of 12, while taking on the voice of pop star Britney Spears. After entertaining her friends in peers at talent shows, she explored deeper into her talent at the Laugh Factory Comedy Camp.
Villasenor made her first television appearance doing her Ellen DeGeneres and Sarah Silverman impressions on “Frank TV” on TBS. She also was in the Just for Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival as part of the New Faces show in 2010. Recently she played a part as Nora Ephron on Fox’s “Family Guy” as well as various voices on Cartoon Network’s “Adventure Time.” Melissa wrote and will star in her one woman show called “I’m Not Myself.” She is a regular on the Los Angeles comedy circuit.
