Gunter brings 'Gigglez' to Florida
Jamaica-born comedian Rohan Gunter has successfully launched his monthly stand-up comedy series in Florida, titled Gigglez.
The first staging was held in February at the new home of the series, Garden Night Club in Lauderdale Lakes, Florida. With the likes of popular comedians such as Ridiculous, Ryan Barrett, Chicken George and Gunter, Gigglez was well received.
"This event was conceptualised to assist in the cultural retention for Jamaicans here in Florida as well as to introduce some of the comical aspects of Jamaican lifestyle to a new audience," said Gunter.
In addition, Gunter is planning to feature more Jamaican talents on the show.
"I love Jamaica, and as a talent who received my start-up through a Jamaican comedy competition, I am very much enthused about opening the door for new comedians coming into the business," he said, adding that new acts will be introduced during the open-mic segment.
