High Notes with Tessa Skara
High Notes with Tessa Skara
High Notes is a high-energy, queer AF, and rock-n-roll-as-hell live musical comedy show hosted by the self proclaimed Rock Goddess of Comedy: Tessa Skara. Featuring a backing band of basement rockstars, High Notes is a show that brings together a revolving roster of stand up comedians, cabaret performers and musicians to belt out numbers on the meaning of life, love, and how kombucha tastes like salad dressing (which is why it's perfect!). If you’re looking for a night of live music, jokes jokes jokes, and moody acoustic ruminations on how selfish it is of your therapist to go on maternity leave then High Notes is the show for you!
Tessa Skara
Tessa Skara
Tessa Skara is a comedian, musician, and (in the words of her middle school bully Ashley) a weird bitch. Tessa's comedic performances have been featured at The Public Theater, Joe’s Pub, The Bell House, Littlefeild, The Annoyance, The Brooklyn Comedy Festival, and Every Shitty Gay Bar In Brooklyn. Her solo rock cabaret, Rock Goddess, was recently featured at Ars Nova and The Duplex. Tessa was a part of the musical sketch group Pop Roulette, with whom she was named one of Comedy Central's Comics to Watch in 2015, performed at sketch festivals around North America, and whose musical "Amazing Earth" ran for a year at UCBT Chelsea. You can see Tessa as a drunk girl in HBO's "Crashing," a coke head in the “The Detour” and hopefully a heroin addict in a feature film sometime soon.
