Tessa is one third of Massive Dad (**** ‘Hilarious’ - The Guardian) and this year she's performing her debut show. Armed with an absolutely useless degree in Anthropology and some very big questions about how we got here, ‘Primates’ is a comedy show about what it means to be human and how everyone needs to calm down.

Tessa has previously been seen on @elevenish (ITV2), Comic Relief (BBC1), Coconut (BBC3) and Nish Kumar’s Christmas Cracker (Sky Arts), and heard on Newsjack (BBC Radio 4), The Lentil Sorters (BBC Radio 4) and the Doctor Who audiobook ‘And You Will Obey’ (Big Finish Productions).

Massive Dad have two smash hit Edinburgh shows and a sold-out Soho Theatre run under their belt, and have been called ‘Stars of the future’ - The Daily Mail, ‘Outstanding’ ***** - ThreeWeeks, and ‘Hilarious’ **** - The Scotsman. Tessa doesn’t think she can quite live up to that and would very much like you to come and hang out with her.

'I love Tessa Coates' - Caitlin Moran.
