Orlando Abdo Pabotoy was born to a Filipino father and an American mother (a New Yorker of Lebanese and Irish heritage) in Delapaz, Bohol, Republic of the Philippines. When he was 17 years old his family moved from Fiji to the United States.

Orlando attended George Mason University and in 1994 he transferred to The Juilliard School for the Arts. While at George Mason he appeared in Shakespeare's "Pericles" as Pericles and "The Two Gentlemen of Verona" as Launce. In early 1999 he appeared on stage in Paul Rudnick's "The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told", which also co-starred Amy Sedaris. In 1998 he co-starred in the Theatre Row Theatre production of Chris Millado's "PeregriNasyon" (Wandering Nation). Francine Russo of The Village Voice cited Orlando for his "charismatic" portrayal of Simeon (not to be confused with Jerri Blank's references to Orlando being a "simian"). He won an Obie Award (Special Citation) for his performance in 2002's "The Romance of Magno Rubio", in which he played the title character.

In the Spring of 2002, Orlando was an instructor in an Advanced Professional Training studio at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. The studio (entitled "Master Class: Physical Comedy/Clowning") was intended to show how, in theater, playfulness transcends style and the exploration of the clown is invaluable to all types of theater, from Shakespeare and Chekhov to Beckett (not to mention Sedaris). At the same time he was also Professor of a similar course at Bard College.

On "Strangers with Candy", Orlando was credited as Orlando Abdo in episodes 1-01, 1-02, 1-05, 1-06, 1-07, 1-09, 1-10, 2-01, 2-04, 2-05, and 2-06. For his other appearances he was credited as Orlando Pabotoy.
