Tara Cox

I am an actor, writer, and comedian who you may find directing kids in musicals or performing rock songs for crowds of 4,000 at Oktoberfest. My recent creation, a series of musical parody videos, has been shared by Rosie O’Donnell, Leslie Jones, and Shania Twain, garnering over 1 million views and a following of over 30k. My favorite theatre credits include undocumented activist Cynthia Felix in East West Player’s “Theatre for Youth” tour, Vanessa in “In the Heights,” and Dromio of Syracuse in “Comedy of Errors.” I have a BA in Theater from UCLA, study improv and writing with UCB, and perform in an educational rock show for kids. Growing up as a mixed race girl at the Renaissance Faire, story telling and representation is so important to me. I hope to create empathy and understanding through music, comedy, and theatre.
