Brix at Newport Vineyards

During the holidays, we could all probably use more relaxation, more exercise and more laughing. Luckily for Newporters, Newport Vineyards is kicking off the first days of December with two seasonal events that bring these things along with plenty of holiday cheer. On Thursday, December 1, get your dose of relaxation with another installment of the Vineyard Vinyasa. Then, on Friday, get your crew together and do some ho–ho-hoing at the Barrel of Laughs Comedy Series feauturing Orlando Baxter, who just appeared on Conan in October.

Join us for an evening of wine and a barrel of laughs as host and comedian Jeremy Furtado welcomes Emily Ruskowski, special guest Mike Holmes and and headliner Orlando Baxter. Orlando has performed around the globe including The New York Comedy Contest, NBC’s ‘Stand Up for Diversity’, The Boston Comedy Festival, and The Montreux Comedy Festival in Switzerland. 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 2016, Orlando’s talent took him back overseas where he debut his show “Suspension, Detentions, and Summer Vacations” at the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland.
