—February 22 and 23: Tony Baker's comedic skills flourished while attending New Mexico State University. His creative ideas were brought to the forefront while writing and directing films with his colleagues, just for the love of it. His comedic skills continued to develop while hosting pageants, talent shows, and fund-raising events on the NMSU campus. His love for theater developed when he made his stage debut in the university production of Of Mice & Men, for which he received his first acting award. After bringing his acting talents to the stage, he knew that it was time to make the dream a reality and uprooted his family to California to pursue a career in acting and stand-up comedy.
