HIGH NOTES WITH TESSA SKARA
Pack your vibrators and roll your joints because Tessa's moving to LA for 3 and a half months starting October 1st!
High Notes is a monthly 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.
This will be the last High Notes in NYC until February 2020, so please, so come party with us because the next time you see Tessa, she could either be famous, broke, or some combination of all of the above!
Hosted by Tessa Skara & the High Notes Band
Featuring Maya Deshmukh, Derek Smith, Jessica Henderson, Alex Song, & more TBA!
Friday, September 27. 8pm. $10.
THE COMMEDIA COMPANY: ONE NIGHT ONLY
The Commedia Company is back in action for an extremely limited engagement! It's an ALL NEW show of devised work AND improvisation in a seat-of-the-pants explosion of comedy, politics, and 17th century English Country Dancing*. Watch as the most dangerously talented, bravest and funniest actors working today use the masks and archetypes of the Commedia dell 'Arte to take on the world we live in now.
There will be moments of ecstatic hilarity and moments of deep collective soul-searching. We’ve got old members, new members, and erstwhile globetrotting members emeritus sitting in for the evening, so you don't want to miss it! Get your tickets ASAP, kiddies, cuz seating is extremely limited and we don’t fuck around with fire codes! Friday the 13th! Put it in your Google Calendar or Trapper Keeper or whatever! Do it right now!
*Could be - anything is possible.
**Not so appropriate for children, by which we mean, not at all...
