From a trailer park in Mishawaka, Indiana to Beverly Hills adjacent, Tammy Tavares has seen it all. Her colorful resume of strip clubs, sugar daddies and a failed career in hairdressing have bizarrely landed her in a stable marriage–a contrast that has become the foundation for her comedy.
For over a decade, Tammy played Dr. Karen Bader on Days of Our Lives, also picking up roles on General Hospital, Las Vegas, N.Y.P.D. Blue, The West Wing, ER, The Mind of the Married Man, Dharma & Greg, and most recently, Two and a Half Men and Drop Dead Diva.
Tammy is trained in comedic and dramatic acting (Ivanna Chubbuck, Larry Moss, Sandy Marshall), stand-up comedy technique (Lisa Sundstedt/Pretty Funny Women) in Improv by way of UCB and the Groundlings.
