Like some of her major inspirations and influences-Sophie Tucker, Patti LuPone, Richard Pryor, John Beluschi and Freddy Mercury-Everett is a true original who has carved out a space in New York City's bustling cabaret, comedy and theater worlds that is all her own. The next Bridget Everett and The Tender Moments dates at Joe's Pub are: October 17, November 7, and December 6. All shows at 9:30 PM.

Writing for the New York Times, Charles Isherwood called Bridget "the life of the party" in a review of At Least It's Pink, an original musical based on Everett's life and co-written with director Michael Patrick King (writer/director of Sex and the City) and Mellman. She also 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 also can be seen as Cathy in the Sex and the City movie, as Shonda in the CBS hit comedy 2 Broke Girls and alongside Adam Horovitz (Adrock: Beastie Boys) in HBO Canada's Funny as Hell.
