Laughin’ for Hope, an evening of comedy, is back for a third year to inspire chuckles from Cayman’s residents.
The fun-filled night will be held at Margaritaville and will be presented by the Cayman Islands Cancer Society in conjunction with Z99 and Rooster 101.
The net proceeds from the occasion will be used to fund the Society’s programmes and activities, including the financial aid programme that provides grants to cancer patients for treatment-related expenses, said a release issued by the organisation.
With two performances on the night, one at 7pm and the other at 9.30pm, this year’s event will see two globally-renowned comics take the Cayman stage.
Paul Lyons, stand-up comic, actor, published author and inspirational guru, has appeared on more than two dozen TV shows, including Everybody Loves Raymond, Comedy Central’s Comics on Delivery and A&E’s Comedy on the Road.
As a stand-up comic, Paul has headlined in every US state as well as in London and Sydney. As an essayist, Paul’s pieces have been included in publications such as TV Guide, Details and Playgirl magazines.
His website is www.laughlyons.com and more information as well as previews of his performances can be found online.
Headlining the event this year is Mutzie, whose career has taken him through every area of entertainment including television, radio and the music industry.
He has appeared on the last six seasons of BET’s Comic View, Club Comic View and the Best of Comic View.
Mutzie has performed in seven countries as well as having his own one-man show in Aruba for nine months. He has been named New Orleans Entertainer of the Year twice and won the Funniest Person in Louisiana contest three times.
The Mutzie show includes music, a few props, some home-grown characters and improvisation that is second to none. Mutzie’s rapid fire improvisational skills have been compared to Robin Williams’.
