Everyone, meet “Melon”.
Described as a “male Ellen”, Mellon’s talk show “In Your Face Entertainment” is for men who are staying home more than ever because of the pandemic. The stage design and format of her show is similar to that of DeGeneres’ show, including “weird male dancing” and her own jokes: “Just like Ellen, Mellon has secret surprises.”
For example, Melon was NBA player Kyrie Irving (played by Chris Redd) as a guest on his talk show, where he sees Irving suddenly given a COVID-19 vaccination without his consent by a doctor, while Mellon distracts him.
“You’re just in the waxed, Melon style,” said Sudeikis’ gleeful Melon, who rocked short blonde hair similar to DeGeneres’ signature style. Reds Irving replied, “I’m crazy.”
They also brought in several “heroic psycho” guests, including Joe Rogan, who had a food section cooking wild boar; Conor McGregor, who got into a fight with a member of the audience; Louis CK, who had a beauty section on male pattern baldness; and YouTube star-turned-boxer Jake Paul, played by Pete Davidson.
“So Jake, you want to announce your next fight?” Sudeikis Mellon asked.
Paul of Davidson replied, “Yo, Muhammad Ali, I’m coming for you in the ring, in the streets, in the cemetery. You can’t hide from me forever, Ali. It’s in the contract. If I win you’ll have to.” Have to change your name back to Cassius Clay.”
“I think he’s dead,” said the Sudeikis’ Mellon dead. (Muhammad Ali died of septic shock in June 2016 at the age of 74.)
This marked the beginning of hosting Sudeikis’ “SNL”. The “Ted Lasso” star was hired as a writer on the sketch comedy show in 2003 and starred as a cast member from 2005 to 2013.
