Larry Noto: Celebrating Life Since 1976
<< >>

Simply put, Larry Noto is a storyteller.

Discover a great story. Determine who your audience is. Figure out what tools you have. And then tell that story effectively and as captivatingly and as entertainingly as you can.

That’s what Larry Noto does… across a multitude of media.

In comedy, he’s entertained audiences in major clubs in New York City, Las Vegas, DC, California and Baltimore and opened for some of the biggest names in the business – Brad Garrett, Lewis Black, Richard Lewis, Brian Regan, Bob Saget and more.

In radio and television, he’s worked on-air and as a producer and even earned an Emmy Nomination for his work at the ABC affiliate in Baltimore.

As a writer, he’s been published by Baltimore magazine, Loyola University and HBO’s The Hobnobber.

And as a Marketing and PR professional, he’s helped tell Baltimore’s tourism industry story for well over a decade, first at Visit Baltimore and then with Harbor Magic Hotels – winning an Adrian Award for tourism web marketing in the process. Larry recently accepted the postion of Director of Marketing and Communications at The National Aquarium.

Noto also co-created “In Buck We Trust,” a humorous t-shirt that captured Orioles fans’ hope of a new season  and was featured on ESPN Baseball Tonight and the MLB Network, and “The Most Interesting Elf in the World,” a spoof of the popular Dos Equis beer commercials that was featured on CNBC XM radio. The team’s latest shirts – “New Season. New Hope. New Orleans” – is inspired by the Ravens 2012 season and is available at


Announcing My New Book – “THE OPENING ACT: Comedy, Life and the Desperate Pursuit of Happiness”

I’m SO excited to announce my new book – “THE OPENING ACT: Comedy, Life and the Desperate Pursuit of Happiness.” I

t’s going to be published this December and is being co-written by Kevin Cowherd, former long-time SUN columnist and author of books with baseball legend Cal Ripken Jr and the recent biography of Ed Hale.


I’ve launched a kickstarter campaign to help fund some of the costs associated with the project. There are various levels and rewards – from signed copies of the book to being personally thanked in the book to tickets to the launch party/comedy show. See the link below and please feel free to share. I appreciate all of your help and support!!!


Ever wonder what madcap adventures, twisted tales and general tomfoolery can be shared between two, 30-something white men living in suburbia? Meh – probably not, but what the Hell, it beats listening to Nicki Minaj and it’s FREE! Join friends, neighbors, and comedic geniuses Larry Noto and Garth Gerhart as they delve into the deep dark recesses of life’s little humor and compare stories from Larry’s swinging Baltimore bachelorhood, to Garth’s constant efforts to raise a family and stay out of the doghouse.

Welcome to my new site!

Hello -

Thanks for checking out my new site!

We’re working on some of the final touches and will be adding things as we go along. It’s a work in progress. I want to give special thanks to Esha Janssens for her design and Alex Ball for all of the programming and getting this thing live. Two great people I’m lucky to call friends.

I want to thank everyone for an amazing year. My friend Garth Gerhart (who is a cartonnist for Mag Magazine) and I teamed up back in the spring and designed a t-shirt, “In Buck We Trust,” that captured fans’ hope of a new Orioles season and new manager Buck Showalter. The shirt was sold in area sport stores and featured on ESPN Baseball Tonight and the MLB Network.

The summer ended on a high note as a I got to perform for a week at Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club at the Tropicana in Las Vegas. It’s a great club and the peolple who run it are fantastic. And while performing there was amazing and the shows went very well, the thing I will remember the most are all of the friends and family who flew out to Vegas from Baltimore, California… even Florida… to support me. It was a very special week that I was blessed to share with them.

My thanks for the Baltimore Comedy Factory and MaGoobys Comedy Club for all of the opportunites and the chance to work with headliners like Bobcat Goldthwait, Pauly Shore, Chad Daniels and Joey Kola.

And as the year comes to a close, I’m excited to announce my latest project – THE MOST INTERESTING ELF IN THE WORLD. Check out the spook at Garth Gerhart did another fantastic job with the design and out thanks to Tom Rowe for the video.

Looking forward to a great 2012!

Larry Noto
