The Village Voice has called Bridget Everett “the most exciting performer in New York City” — and if you’ve seen her perform, it’s easy to understand why.
Warning: The following video contains explicit lyrics and may not be suitable for all viewers.
She self identifies as an alt-cabaret provocateur, blending her vocalist training and comedic timing to create wild, unexpected and interactive performances.
“I was just looking for a way to express myself so I started with cabaret and I just took it further and further and further,” Everett told Fusion’s Alicia Menendez in an interview.
Though Everett has made a name for herself on TV with spots on shows like “Inside Amy Schumer,” she prefers the thrill of a live performance.
Part of Everett’s signature style is her no boundaries, no censor, all-in attitude and interaction with her audience. Menendez asked her if she ever worries about crossing the line with someone in the audience.
“In the moment, it doesn’t even cross my mind,” Everett told Menendez. “I just think that everyone wants to be touched and I’m just trying to share and really unique expression with the audience.”
