Jamaican Comedians come to South Florida

Comedy fans can gear up for a night of fun and laughter on May 15th, as Jamaican comedians get set to strut their stuff on the South Florida stage at this year’s Comedy Fest 2016.

This year’s headliners are the ever popular Ity & Fancy Cat – the hilarious duo from Jamaica’s  variety comedy, the “Ity and Fancy Cat” show, which has been entertaining fans for eight seasons. The line up also features Christopher “Johnny” Daley – a well rounded entertainer celebrated for his roles in film, radio, television, and theater, particularly as the iconic Johnny on Jamaican sitcom, Lime Tree Lane. Owen “Blakka” Ellis, will be hitting the stage as well, most lauded as a seasoned entertainer from the hilarious duo Blakka & Bello, which started over 30 years ago.

The list of comedians continues with Lemon, who has captured the love of audiences with his wit and theatrical performances through his tours in the Caribbean, U.S.A, Canada and the U.K. And Rohan Gunter will be showing all that South Florida has to offer, as the finalist from last year’s Lauderhill’s Got Talent competition. The only woman of the group, comedian and actress Audrey ‘Dancehall Queen’ Reid, (famed for her star turn in 1997 cult classic, “Dancehall Queen”) will also be entertaining fans with her famous impressions and insights.
