Get ready for a weekend filled with laughter.
Executive Services presents the Laughter Lounge on Saturday, featuring Mike Troy from “Chappelle’s Show,” and comedian “Sinck” from BET “ComicView.”
There will actually be two shows on the same day: the Gospel Comedy Show and the Laughter Lounge.
It has been nearly two months since the last Laughter Lounge, so no doubt the Cayman public is more than ready to laugh once again. This show will be held at Margaritaville on the waterfront from 8:30-11:30 p.m., featuring acts from the international comedy circuit, including Troy and “Sinck” on the main stage. This event is for those ages 18 and older.
Gospel Comedy Show
This show doubles as a fundraiser and runs from 6-8 p.m. at The Family Life Centre, 22 Academy Way (corner of Walkers Road and Academy Way). It is for all ages, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Agape Church and the Covenant Moravian Church.
The Gospel Comedy Show and Fundraiser will be hosted by Brother Recardo, and comedian “Sinck” will open for headliner Troy, who was recently awarded 2017 McDonald’s Gospelfest Comedian of the Year. He is also currently touring with Bishop Hezekiah Walker.
