AFTER a two-month absence, the Ellis International promoted LIME Comedy Café returned with a bang on Wednesday night at the South Beach Café in New Kingston.

The event attracted a large turnout of patrons who enjoyed a bellyful of laughs courtesy of a strong line-up of comedians and entertainers.

Among the night's stand out presentations were those delivered by Ity and Fancy Cat, newcomer Kevin Swaby, Professor Nuts, Rozah Roze and Owen 'Blakka' Ellis.

Ity and Fancy Cat who also served as hosts, demonstrated their wit and humour with comedy routines that poked jabs at government officials, entertainers and current trends in music and fashion.

Ten-year-old Wayne J is an act to watch. The young deejay delivered an entertaining routine which went down well with the crowd. Like a seasoned pro, the youngster spoke with tenacity about the importance of staying in school, and being respectful to elders.

YouTube blogger Kevin Swaby better known as Kevin 2 Krayzee made his live comedy debut and was well received by the audience. Professor Nuts aka Drunken Jimmy revamped some of his hits from the 1980s in comedic style which had patrons laughing non-stop.

Rozah Roze utilised the melody from several American hits and reworked the lyrics in true comedic fashion which saw howls of laughter piercing the venue. Blakka Ellis was also in fine form.

Dance Xpressions delivered well choreographed dance routines, while comedian Boasy Boy Floyd delivered a well received cameo appearance.

In between performances, there were giveaways courtesy of main sponsor LIME.

The next edition of the LIME Comedy Café will take place on Wednesday, August 27 at South Beach Café.
