Comedy Latvia: English Comedy Night ft. Orlando Baxter (USA)
Nabaklab (Zigfrīda Annas Meierovica bulvāris 12, Riga, Latvia)
Comedy Latvia is proud to present another English Comedy Night happening in NABAKLAB on the 4th of October!
Our big international comedy nights always have two foreign guests who are not only great comedians but also our friends! Come along and join in the fun with us, a Stand Up show is meant to be relaxed and enjoyed with a few beers.
This month our special guest is straight from the USA and has just finished his first full run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Orlando Baxter!
ORLANDO BAXTER (USA)
Orlando Baxter is America's funniest teacher turned into a Stand Up comedian! Having recently supported Trevor Noah in the USA, his fresh perspective and unique reliability has solidified him as one of America's hottest rising comics. He has accumulated a string of finalist positions in lots of contests and festivals including The New York Comedy Festival, NBC's 'Stand Up for Diversity Showcase' and the Boston Comedy Festival. In 2012 he toured across the USA supporting their national headliner Jo Koy, before making TV appearances on AXS TV's 'Gotham Live'. In 2014, Orlando's talent took him overseas and he became a finalist at the Montreux Comedy festival. This year he made a triumphant return to Europe for his first full season at Edinburgh Festival and we are very happy to have him over in Estonia!
LUCA CUPANI (ITA)
Luca Cupani is an Italian actor and comedian. In 2014 he moved from Italy to London, looking for better job opportunities: once in the UK, he discovered the world of stand up comedy and fell in love with it. His first ever competitive gig was on February 2014 at the Gong Show of the Comedy Store (known as "London's most brutal open-mic night") and he won. Since then, Luca has been performing in many comedy clubs and festivals (Edinburgh Fringe, Leicester Comedy Festival).
Competitions: 2015 So You Think You're Funny? Winner 2015 Golden Jester Runner up 2015 Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year Finalist
"He is an engaging performer; genuine and eager to please, sweet and openhearted … funny and fresh and so, so moreish" (Kate Copstick, The Scotsman)
"his early success in the field of comedy and his willingness to push boundaries with his material will stand him in good stead." (Suzanne Black, The List)
Our local team is also back with fresh new comedy! Estonain comedian Daniel Veinbergs is straight outta Tallinn and now calls the mean streets of university town Tartu his home. Estonain man Karl-Alari Varma is no stranger to Comedy Latvia fans and our host is the man who has been in the Baltics for so long we are starting to think he may not actually be allowed back to Australia, Louis Zezeran!
