Jamaican comedy duo Ity & Fancy Cat will once again grace the New York stage this Fall at the George W. Wingate Campus in Brooklyn for ONE SHOW ONLY on Sunday, October 10, 2010 at 8:00 pm. The duo will be joined by Susan Kennedy from Trinidad & Tobago and a host of other friends, including reggae singer and producer Highland “Dobby” Dobson, nicknamed ‘The Loving Pauper’ after one of his best known songs.
Owen “Blakka” Ellis, who brought the curtains down on his comedic career in New York last summer, will serve as host.
Ity & Fancy Cat has enjoyed tremendous success, wooing Jamaican & Caribbean audiences locally and internationally for over a decade. The duo which hails from one of Jamaica’s innercity communities, Trench Town, made the obvious choice of a pathway to happiness through laughter, rather than embrace the culture of violence which pervaded their environment.
After dabbling with ‘deejaying’, the pair realized that their penchant for the “funny stuff” was more their calling. They first came to public notice in Courts (Jamaica) Furniture advertising campaign, and continued over the years, to hone their craft with numerous corporate and other engagements such as the Caribbean leg of ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’
Outrageously hilarious and courageously irreverent, they are unquestionably the hottest comedy act currently operating out of the Caribbean. The duo is an absolutely ‘must have’ item on any stand-up comedy show of repute anywhere in Jamaica and the Caribbean and has left audiences worldwide in fits of laughter and begging for more following their performances in many major cities. They do much more than stir humor and evoke laughter however, as the entertainment journey of this electrifying duo also makes for an encouraging and inspirational narrative on many other fronts.
According to Producers Horace and Victoria Mitchell, “We are committed to providing wholesome family entertainment and this event affords us such an opportunity. Patrons will be able to enjoy an evening of unlimited laughter from some of the top Caribbean comedians as well as music from one of reggae’s great.”
Tickets for the comedy and music treat are reasonably priced at $35 for advance purchase and $40 at the door.
