Two alumni took the stage at “Conan,” the late-night show on TBS hosted by comedian Conan O’Brien, this past fall.
Tim Harrington ’10 is part of folk duo Tall Heights, and the band performed their single “Spirit Cold,” off their “Neptune” album during the Sept. 26, 2016, episode. The song has over 10 million plays on Spotify, an online music streaming service. Harrington sings and plays guitar, while bandmate Paul Wright sings and plays cello; the pair completed a national tour in 2016. Watch a video of their performance on “Conan” at holycross.edu/hcm/tallheights.
Orlando Baxter ’98 made his late-night comedy debut on the Oct. 26, 2016 episode. For just under five minutes, Baxter entertained the studio audience and viewers at home, joking about how a career as a comedian compares to his first career as an in-school suspension teacher. He has toured as a stand-up comedian both nationally and internationally. Watch a video of his “Conan” set at holycross.edu/hcm/baxter. ■
