January Comedy Night @ the Pearl

January COMEDY NIGHT @ the Portsmouth Pearl!


The cost is $15. at the door, and as always the bar will be open throughout the show.

Come join us for another Great night laughing and socializing with comedians Jim Lauletta and Orlando Baxter!

Jim Lauletta

Not only is Boston-born comedian/actor Jim Lauletta one of the most popular headlining college and club in acts in New England, he's a regular performer in Las Vegas and Atlantic City! Jim's national television credits include: HBO's U.S. Comedy Arts Festival's Best of the Fest, NBC, Comedy Central and Comcast's Comedy Spotlight. After being featured on Comedy Central's "Shorties Watchin' Shorties", Jim was invited to Denis Leary's Comics Come Home XI in 2005 and wowed a crowd 6,000 and his demand has soared ever since. With a role ( I'll be the "blur" in the end zone holding a camera in a pivotal scene...yay. ) in the upcoming film "The Game Plan" starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Jim's star is sure to rise with no sign of coming down ( LOLOL! YEAH, RIGHT!). Jim's fast wit and interaction with the audience ensure that no two shows are exactly alike but do, however, include his signature closing impressions you have to see and hear to believe: Roy Schieder as Chief Brody in the film "JAWS" and Don Knotts as Batman.

Orlando Baxter

Orlando Baxter exploded onto the Boston comedy scene in 2006, and quickly established himself as one of the areas hottest young comics. His fresh perspective and unique relateability quickly solidified this personable middle school teacher into a fan favorit.
In 2007 Orlando was a finalist in NBC's ‘Stand Up for Diversity Showcase’, and in 2010, he became a finalist in both the New York Comedy Contest and the Boston Comedy festival. He’s a regular at numerous comedy clubs throughout New England, and performs all over the country as the opening act for national headliner Jo Koy.
Orlando’s refreshing energy is unmatched and his likeability is undeniable, and if the past is any indication of the future, Orlando Baxter is a promising young talent with some serious staying power.

    The poor weather kept the turn out low. The Comedians were OK.
    Sitting next to a heckler made me uncomfortable. I guess there is a first time for everything.
