Rosebud Baker



Rosebud Baker is a New York-based comedian, actress, and writer. In 2018, she was selected as New Face of Comedy at Montreal's prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival 2018. The Village Voice named Rosebud as The Very Best of Just For Laughs New Faces Showcase, stating ''Baker’s no-nonsense, wickedly dirty routine cut through the evening like barbed wire."


Rosebud's intensely personal, remorselessly dark brand of humor stood out to viewers in the Amazon Video docu-series, "Inside Jokes" which documented her journey to the festival from auditions, to callbacks, to the showcase itself.


Since then, Rosebud has appeared on Comedy Central Stand-up, and opened for some of the biggest names in comedy, including Michael Che, Colin Jost, and Amy Schumer. She is slated to perform at Comedy Central's Clusterfest in 2019, and will be appearing in the networks new standup series presented by Bill Burr in 2020. She's also worked as a writer for Comedy Central's Roast of Alec Baldwin.


Rosebud will be co-headlining Just For Laughs' 42 festival in Toronto September 2019, alongside Corinne Fisher, where they'll be hosting a live edition of their weekly podcast, "Two Less Lonely Girls" available on iTunes and Spotify.
