Tess Middlebrook began acting in New York City in 2007. Tess can be found writing characters for her sketch team, 'Inland HACKS', or doing shows around LA with her improv teams; "Twit & Twat", or "About Last Night". and A chef in her former life, you can see Tess on the Food Network's Hit Series "CHOPPED". While cooking professionally in New York, Tess produced a web-series about an actress trapped in a cooks body called Cooking with Schizophrenia. She then wrote and produced her one woman show entitled American Flavored Dumb; the show explored a myriad of American women with inflated egos and low IQ's, YEAH, AMURICA!
Since moving out to Los Angeles Tess has started writing a new web-series called Hillbrook Gardens. Gardens is Lisa Kudrow's The Comeback meets Parks and Recreation. Watch the official trailer below!
In addition, Tess is taking classes at The Groundlings theater in Los Angeles and earning a special degree in "pretend". When she's not creating projects or slightly offending people Tess is doing improv with her two person team, "We Play Basketball". She and her partner have a bi-weekly show on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month is Los Feliz at the Impro studio. Please message her if you want some stage time!
Tess has a BA in Theater from Hunter College, and is equity & SAGe. She's trained at Stella Adler, The UCB Theater, and through private coaches such as Sybil Lines (Royal Shakespeare Company) and Rebecca Drysdale (writer, Key & Peele). Tess hopes you are having a wonderful day and wants to share that talking about herself in the third person feels like public speaking, but to herself, it's a little weird. Ok, Bye!
