ABOUT THE SHOW
You might know Tessa as an alt comedian, a 420 enthusiast and a woman in an all-consuming love/hate relationship with Whole Foods, but you probably didn’t know that Tessa is also: A Rock Goddess. The self-proclaimed Courtney Love of Comedy is ready for the first and last night of her world tour, performing original songs and stories she wrote while hiding in her room and smoking weed for most of 2016. You know — what rock goddesses do. Tessa, and some of Brooklyn’s real rockstars, present to you a riot grrrl cabaret featuring songs about losing your diva cup at the Apple Store, homoerotic church decorations and what Kurt Cobain would think of Nirvana’s lasting popularity.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
TESSA SKARA is a comedian, musician, performance artist and (in the words of her middle school bully Ashley) a weird bitch. Tessa was named one of Comedy Central’s Comics to Watch in 2015 with her group Pop Roulette, whose musical Amazing Earth just finished a year long run at UCBT Chelsea. Tessa’s comedic performances have also been featured at The Public Theater, Joe’s Pub, The Bell House, The Annoyance, Every Shitty Gay Bar In Brooklyn and her fav safe space Dixon Place. You can see Tessa as a drunk girl in HBO’s Crashing, a coke head in the next season of The Detour and hopefully a heroine addict in a feature film sometime soon.
