"Wynona Judd meets Melissa Etheridge, via the local bar floozy, on a rocket ship out of Twin Peaks" -Michael Musto, The Village Voice
"Multiply the mouthy, flesh-jiggling early Bette Midler by one hundred, give her the super-plus-size figure and fashion sense of Divine, the John Waters Diva, and the manners of a Flintstone, and you've got a rough approximation of Bridget Everett..." -Stephen Holden, New York Times
Every month Bridget Everett & The Tender Moments bring their funny yet gut-wrenching and outrageous performance to Joe’s Pub at The Public. Led by the singing tour de force Bridget Everett, “a mouthy, flesh-jiggling early Bette Midler” (New York Times), the band has sold-out venues nationally and instantly developed a cult-like following with their edgy, sexed-up, punk rock cabaret. Each performance is as explosive as it is unpredictable, welcoming special guests as varied as Fred Armisen, Patti LuPone, Flea, Dan Finnerty (The Dan Band), Tonya Pinkins, Marc Shaiman, Erin Markey, Peaches, Neal Medlyn and Jake Shears (Scissor Sisters) while fans such as Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill, Andy Cohen and Lily Taylor can be seen laughing hysterically in the audience. Imagine Freddy Mercury, Richard Pryor and Sophie Tucker had a baby, and then you might be getting close…maybe. Bridget Everett & The Tender Moments are poised to release their debut album of original music in October 2013 featuring the singles Titties, What I Gotta Do and Fuck Shit Up. Bridget Everett has been called on of the Funniest People in New York by Time Out. Her film, theater and television credits include Inside Amy Schumer, At Least It's Pink, Bridget and Neal are F*cking and Adam Is Watching, Two Broke Girls, Jeffrey Cole Casserole, Jukebox Jackie and Our Hit Parade. Bridget has appeared at Montreal's Just For Laughs Festival, HBO's Aspen United States Comedy Arts Festival, The Adelaide International Cabaret Festival, The San Francisco Sketchfest, and The New York Comedy Festival.
