Who is Melanie Truhett?

Melanie Truhett is an American film manager and producer who, apart from being best known for her professional works on the movie “Mystery Men” (1999) and the TV series “Drew Carey’s Improv-A-Ganza” in 2011, is also widely recognized for being the spouse of colleague Brian Posehn.

Early Life and Education

Melanie was born in the USA, probably in the mid-1970s, and is of American nationality and white ethnicity; details about her exact birth date as well as her birthplace and her family’s background, members and siblings have never been publicly disclosed to the present day. The information regarding her educational background still remains unknown as well.


Melanie’s professional career began in 1999 when she became an assistant on the set of the Sci-Fi action comedy movie “Mystery Men”, with Ben Stiller, Janeane Garofalo, Geoffrey Rush and William H. Macy in the leading roles. After over half a decade long hiatus, she returned to the moviemaking industry, and in 2005 first worked on a documentary movie “Patriotic Act: A Jeffrey Ross Home Movie”, which was immediately followed by an appearance in an episode of the TV documentary series “The Comedians of Comedy”. Later that year, Truhett produced an episode of the television comedy series “One Night Stand”.

In 2009 she was briefly engaged on an episode of the TV comedy series “Burning Hollywood”, after which she produced an episode of “The Quest for the Golden Hot Dog” comedy series. However, to a greater prominence Melanie Truhett came in 2011, when she worked on a total of 40 episodes of the TV comedy show “Drew Carey’s Improv-A-Ganza”.

In 2012 she was involved in production of the short movie “We Think Nate Torrence is Dead”, while in 2014 Melanie produced two short sequel movies entitled “Night Night with Ron Funches” and “Night Night with Ron Funches Ep 2”. Some of Truhett’s most recent engagements in her professional portfolio include an appearance in “Coming to the Stage” TV comedy show in 2018, as well as serving as the executive producer of the 2019 TV movie “Ron Funches: Giggle Fit”.

Melanie Truhett’s marriage with Brian Posehn

Melanie is a married woman – since 2004 she has been married to American actor, writer, musician and a comedian Brian Posehn, who is most popular for starring in “The Sarah Silverman Program,” and “The Big Bang Theory” TV series. The two first met in 2000, and soon afterwards began dating. After steadily building their relationship for over four years, they decided to bring it to a higher level, and tied the knot – their private wedding ceremony took place on the 4th September 2004. So far, the two have welcomed one child, a son whose name hasn’t been publicly revealed so far.

Brian Edmund Posehn was born on the 6th July 1966 in Sacramento, California, USA, and apart from being of American nationality and white ethnicity, is also of Norwegian, Swedish, Irish, English, Italian as well as German descent. Upon matriculation from Sonoma Valley High School in 1984, he enrolled at California State University, Sacramento. His professional career began in 1994, and his first major acting appearance occurred just a year later, when he began starring in the HBO’s hit television comedy series “Mr. Show with Bob and David”. Since then Brian has added almost 120 acting credits to his professional portfolio, including appearances in some of the globally popular and praised TV series such as “Seinfeld”, “Everybody Loves Raymond”, “Californication”, “Kim Possible”, “The Simpsons”, “Will & Grace” and “New Girl” as well as in movies including “Run Ronnie Run” (2002), “Sleeping Dogs Lie” (2006), “Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer” (2007), “Sex Drive” (2008), “The Five-Year Engagement” (2012) and the title role in the 2015 comedy movie “Uncle Nick”.

For his great performances in the TV series “Mr. Show with Bob and David”, Posehn was nominated for the prestigious Primetime Emmy Award in 1998 and 1999, however, his most memorable acting engagement to this day is certainly the portrayal of the recurring role of geologist Bert Kibbler in the CBS’s hit sitcom and Golden Globe-winning TV series “The Big Bang Theory”.

As there aren’t any rumors or controversies circulating in the mass media regarding either Melanie or Brian, it can be concluded that they are happily married. With her family, she resides in Los Angeles, California.
