Rosebud Baker closes off this year’s JFL miniseries of Go Plug Yourself podcasts!

On this JFL minisode I talk to Rosebud Baker about her shows at Café Cleopatra where she will performing all new material for the Montreal Just for Laughs crowd. Rosebud has always thought of herself as a pessimist but after the last few years of the pandemic, maybe she’s a realist? Maybe all of our therapists actually owe us some money right now as our some of our worst fears came true. We talk about handling the pandemic with her husband Andy Haynes (her husband and co-host of the “Find Your Beach” podcast) and how her latest material focuses on “what now.”

Rosebud will have a bunch of shows at Café Cleopatra, will be doing a live recording of “Find Your Beach” and will be featured on the Marc Maron Gala. Check out her artist page at for more info and showtimes of all of Rosebud Baker’s shows at the Just for Laughs Festival here in Montreal.

Rosebud Baker is a New York based comedian, writer and actress, who is currently on the writing staff for the award-winning sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live in it’s 47 th season. Her debut hour standup special Whiskey Fists, produced by Bill Burr’s All Things Comedy, premiered on Comedy Central Digital in 2021. The special was a hit with fans and critics alike, as Vulture featured Rosebud in “Comedians You Should and Will Know in 2022.” The New Yorker included her in their annual list of “Best Jokes of 2021” and Rolling Stone gushed that her humor “ranges from merciless self-excavation to slashing social satire graced by intelligence and nuance.” She can be seen in the recurring role of MERI in the new Hulu series Life & Beth alongside Amy Schumer and Michael Cera, and she is a writer and performer on HBO Max’s WGA Award nominated sketch series That Damn Michael Che.
