'Last Comic Standing' finalist Tess performs at UTSA

(April 6, 2005)--Last Comic Standing finalist Tess performed last week at an event presented by the Campus Activities Board (CAB) in the UTSA University Center at the 1604 Campus.

Tess Drake (her full name) has been featured on "The Jamie Foxx Show," BET's "Comic View" and in the Def Comedy Jam Tour.

According to the comedian, her material focuses on relationships and the virtues of being a beautiful woman.

An Ohio native, Tess discovered her comedic talents in high school, where she was voted class president and class clown. After graduating high school, she nixed her last name for the stage and moved to Oakland, Calif. A 90-day marriage provided the foundation for her comedic material.
