HIGH NOTES

High Notes is a high-energy, unabashedly queer, 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 at Williamsburg's Cloud City, 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 youre 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!

High Notes

The only thing that Tessa Skara loves more than getting high, is getting high. Ugh, sorry, I mean singing. Join the Rock Goddess of comedy in her new monthly variety show featuring her rock band, the most hilarious guests a beer can buy, and her mom’s basement, which I’m like 99% sure we can smoke weed in. Come for the screlting. Leave because my bitch sister is calling the cops.

Featuring: Tessa Skara, Bowen Yang, Larry Owens, Arti Gollapudi, Eudora Peterson, Ruby McCollister and The Rock Goddess Band (Eric Jiminez, Cris Neglia, and Simon Hanes)

Showgasm

If you don't know what Showgasm is, then I express my condolences. 
Showgasm is one of the coolest, weirdest, most downright fun shows I've gotten to perform at in NY&C. It's also what Melania Trump calls her orgasms when she's talking to her sister over skype, AND why she has to get her husbands pants dry cleaned every time he makes a camera appearance. Haha, the jokes literally never leave me! I am trapped!

I'm going to be hosting this show with my wonderful band (featuring Eric Jimenez, Cris Neglia, and Kitt Kittridge) performing some of our greatest hits, as well as a new song I penned for Mommy Earth, called "Trees (Invisible Dick Song)"
So, yeaaaaah. That's something that I spent my time on.

We're also going to be joined by some amazingly talented
and exceptionally beautiful performers:
ELEANORE PIENTA (Cocoon Central Dance Dream Girl)
IKE UFOMADU (Joe's Pub Bébé) 
KAROLENA THERESA (Hidden Fences Hotness)
and
LENA EINBINDER (Queer Warrior/High Priestex of the Church Of Dog)

All wonderful. All weird in their own way. All complete babes ;)

I hope that you can join us for a wonderful night.

Rock Goddess @ The Duplex

You might know Tessa Skara as a Comedy Central "Comic To Watch," along with her sketch group Pop Roulette. You might know her from her performances at UCB, Ars Nova, Joe's Pub, and Every Shitty Gay Bar In Brooklyn. You might know her from her show Thank Goddess in which no straight white men are allowed to perform. Or you might know her as a 420 enthusiast 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 back for the first and last night of her world tour, with original songs and stand up she wrote while hiding in her room, smoking weed, and cleaning the bathtub to have a bath and then never having a bath because she's too stoned and can't stop thinking about the CHEMICALS! You know — what rock goddesses do. Tessa, and some of Brooklyn’s real rockstars, present to you a rock cabaret featuring songs about losing your diva cup at the Apple Store, homoerotic church decorations and how selfish it is for your therapist to go on maternity leave. 

FEATURING: Eric Jimenez, Cris Neglia and Kitt Kittredge

$8 Ticket in Advance & a 2 Drink Minimum in the Cabaret Theatre*

$13 Ticket at the Door (plus service fee) & a 2 Drink Minimum in the Cabaret Theatre*
