STG Presents Bridget Everett at the Rendezvous in Seattle on October 22 & 23, 2014.
Bridget Everett is a singing tour de force known for her funny yet gut-wrenching, outrageous and unpredictable performance work. She’s been dubbed “Wynona Judd meets Melissa Etheridge, via the local bar floozy, on a rocket ship out of Twin Peaks” by Michael Musto from the Village Voice. She has appeared frequently on Time Out New York’s annual list of top cabaret performers, ranking number one in 2010 on a list which included Alan Cumming and Elaine Stritch. Bridget co-hosted Our Hit Parade, a sold-out monthly revue of current pop hits, with Kenny Mellman (Kiki and Herb) and Neal Medlyn at Joe’s Pub. She starred in the original musical At Least It’s Pink based on her life which she co-wrote with director Michael Patrick King (writer/director of hit tv series Sex and the City) and Mellman which played Ars Nova for 12 weeks. Bridget has performed at Montreal’s Just for Laughs, New York Comedy Festival, HBO’s Aspen United States Comedy Arts Festival and the Adelaide International Cabaret Festival in Adelaide, Australia. She played Lynn Chenney in Taylor Mac’s Red Tide Blooming at P.S.122, was featured in Scott Wittman’s production JUKEBOX JACKIE, and was a regular on Logo’s Jeffrey Cole Casserole. She can be seen as Cathy in the Sex and the City movie and as Shonda in the CBS hit comedy, 2 Broke Girls. Bridget co-wrote and performed an evening of original music called Bridget and Neal are F*cking and Adam is Watching with Medlyn and Adam Horovitz (Adrock: Beastie Boys). Bridget can be seen in HBO Canada’s Funny as Hell alongside Horovitz. and will be releasing an album of original music with her band, The Tender Moments, this fall. Bridget’s monthly shows with The Tender Moments have grown a cult-like following and have had guest appearances by Patti LuPone, Fred Armisen, Flea, Marc Shaiman, Tonya Pinkins, Jake Shears and more.
