Jill Michele Meleán is an American comic actress. Meleán is perhaps best known for her membership in the recurring cast of comedians on the sketch comedy series MADtv.

Career[edit]

MADtv[edit]

Meleán joined the cast of MADtv in 2002, as a featured performer, for the seventh season. She was the second Hispanic MADtv cast member (The first was Cuban born Nelson Ascencio in 1999) and the first Latin female to join the show. However, unlike Ascencio, it was not her portrayal of famous Latin stars that got her her big break on the show. Her first skit, a parody of Britney Spears' "Not a Girl" video, quickly gained her fans and notoriety. As a result, Meleán was promoted to repertory status for the following season.

While on MADtv, Britney Spears was not the only celebrity that Meleán lampooned. She also impersonated Kelly Osbourne, Jenna Bush, Asia Argento, Jennifer Lopez, and Drew Barrymore. Meleán also replaced Kathryn Fiore's character in the Kappa Kappa Kappa Sorority sisters sketch.
