The best kept secret in music



"Tess is charming, unique, and above all, hilarious. We would gladly have her back at UCSB any time!" - Jeff Urrea, UCSB - Jeff Urrea

"SoCal Comics to Watch"

"The thing I adore about Tess Barker is her inimitable capability to single out the absurdity of a situation when others demure. Elephants are not safe..."

- Stephen Torres, San Francisco Chronicle


Still working on that hot first release.



Tess Barker hails from Southern California, where she grew up in an electric blue house. She also attended zoo camp, where she was 'marked,' by a lion, and performed in dance recitals at the local mental institution: all facts that led her to realize early on that she didn't choose comedy, comedy chose her.
As an adult, she continued to enjoy this fate, studying sketch and improv at the prestigious Groundlings in Hollywood, and reading her comedic essays on the Comedy Central stage and at other writer's salons. Her comedy scripts have earned her accolades in a number of screenwriting competitions. She is a contracted contributer at iklipz.com, where several of her videos have been number one featured on youtube. She has performed stand up at Hollywood's Comedy Store and The Laugh Factory, and at venues and schools through out the country.

Recent Achievements:
-Tess's monthly show "Rooftop Stand Up" was featured in the Los Angeles Downtown News.
- She opened for Rick Shapiro in Los Angeles..
-She performed for the third time at the Comedy Central workspace in Hollywood.
-A workshop is in the works for an original play she authored over the summer.
