City Steam And The Brew Ha Ha Present: Orlando Baxter - Finalist at The New York Comedy Contest

with john Ivarone and Dan Kalwhite

Orlando Baxter exploded onto the Boston comedy scene in 2005, and was quickly established as one of the areas hottest young comics. His fresh perspective and unique relatability soon made this former high school teacher a fan favourite and led to a string of finalist positions in a host of contests and festivals including The New York Comedy Contest, NBC’s ‘Stand Up for Diversity Showcase’ and the Boston Comedy Festival. In 2012 he toured across the U.S. with national headliner Jo Koy, as the opening act in the "Lights Out" tour, before making TV appearances on AXS TV’s ‘Gotham Live’. In 2014, Orlando’s talent took him overseas where he became a finalist at the prestigious Montreux Comedy festival in Switzerland.

John was born in the Bronx and lived there until his mom decided to migrate miles away (2 to be exact) on to the mean streets of........ Westchester County. Now, John has his headquarters in "The Heights"

John has been doing stand-up comedy for 2,920 days (not in a row).

Wheather it's an 8 or 38 minute set at a Club, Corporate Function, Private Party or Fundraiser John's audience describes his hysterically funny set in one word, Honest, Original, Animated! OK, that was 1 word, but from 3 different audiences.

So if you want to hear his take on Current Events, Marriage, Children Ask his wife, or even better, come see him live!!
