Comedic duo Ity and Fancy Cat, tummler Owen “Blakka” Ellis, musician Harold Davis, and singer Kristen Alicia are slated to headline An Evening of Comedy and Culture at The African American Research Library & Cultural Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Saturday, April 21.

Showtime is 6:00 pm.

The event is a fundraiser to assist children in need and will benefit the restoration of the Walkers Place of Safety for Children in Kingston, which was recently destroyed by fire.

“The staging of this event brings together some of the best Jamaican comedians as well as top entertainers to support the mission of our foundation. We are grateful that we were able to forge a meaningful partnership with the African Research Library and our corporate supporters to work towards a charitable cause,” Susan Davis, founder of The Dr Sue and You Charitable Foundation, told the Jamaica Observer yesterday.

Ity and Fancy Cat are arguably the Caribbean's hottest comedy act. Their successful television series, The Ity and Fancy Cat Show, has garnered them a solid global fan base.

Ellis came to prominence as half of the act, Bello & Blakka, in the early '80s and still has the ability to captivate the audience with his down-to-earth humour and commentary on life in the Caribbean.
