Local comedians for US show
A strong cast of Jamaican comedians are slated for Come Laugh Till You Drop at United Banquet Hall in Hartford, Connecticut, on Sunday, October 5.
The acts include Boasy Boy Floyd (formerly Pretty Boy Floyd), Rohan Gunter, Lemon and Christopher 'Johnny' Daley.
For promoter Junior Wellington, there seems to be a steady appreciation for this form of entertainment in the US.
"Comedy is alive and well in Hartford. It's natural as a lot of Jamaicans populate this area," he told the Jamaica Observer.
Wellington believes the popularity of local comedians is pinned to the fact that they keep the 'link' between Jamaica and the United States. And when they perform, people can forget their problems and have a good laugh.
"Boasy Boy Floyd has been here lots of times, but each time they see him, he manages to get them cracking up the same," he continued.
For Boasy Boy Floyd, whose given name is Ludlow Peynado, it's all about being spontaneous.
"I'm a build-on-spot kinda person," he said.
