Comedy Bar, the Tuesday night series hosted by actor/comedian Christopher “Johnny”' Daley, continues to attract its share of fans to the 100 venue on Hope Road in Kingston.

This week's event featured actor-turned comedian Marlon Adubbs and Grandpa Entertainment.

Prior to the main acts, patrons saw aspiring comedians in the open mic segment.

Daley spoke about the response to this phase of Comedy Bar.

“It has been going strong and more people are accepting the genres. I am very elated to see more people coming out to try it. This is really a platform for up-and-coming talent to showcase their work,” he said.

Montego Bay-based Adubbs, who started out as a stage actor, dished out some provocative anecdotes. However, it was Grandpa Entertainment who amused with his antics.

Daley, who hosted the event, also performed. He touched on current issues such as entertainers running afoul of the law, and relationship matters.

This is the second year of Comedy Bar. The 2018 season began in February and ends in December.

“People like the camaraderie and energy that we bring here each week. We use up all the genres of comedy to make a point and people appreciate that it's not just slapstick comedy, but this is smart, and we have to think about what we are saying,” said Daley.

He continued, “This is a marriage between myself and the owners of 100, and so far it has been bearing fruit.”

American comedian Shuler King is scheduled to perform at Comedy Bar on June 26 alongside Boasy Boy Floyd and Kathy Grant.
