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.
