For its first anniversary show scheduled for Saturday, December 14, 2013, the bi-monthly calendar event, Comedytainment, will be held at a new venue, the Courtyard by Spartan Health Club in New Kingston, St Andrew, and will also see a title sponsor on board, soft drink brand, Bigga.

Commenting on the partnership, Nicole Brown of Imagine Dat Entertainment Agents (IDEAs), organisers of the event, said: "This partnership is worth the wait. We were always looking for the right fit for the brand and we are very happy that Bigga has signed on, especially for our first anniversary. It also speaks well for Corporate Jamaica in recognising the growth and development of the sector and is willing to put the funds into it."

The anniversary show will include performances from the likes of comedians Christopher 'Johnny' Daley, Donald 'Iceman' Anderson and dancehall deejays Mad Anju and Professor Nuts. Rounding out the night's entertainment line-up will be the magician, Turner and the Silver Bird Steel Band with Dufton Shepherd in the hot seat as event host.

"We're super-excited to have lasted through the year and it would not have happened were it not for the support of many persons including all the talent, sponsors and hardworking team at Imagine Dat," said Brown.

The Comedytainment series, which began in December 2012, was conceptualised to showcase stand-up comedy as a bona fide addition to the entertainment landscape in Jamaica.

So far, the event has featured top acts such as Dr Michael Abrahams, Owen 'Blakka' Ellis, Christopher 'Johnny' Daley, Elva, Bongo Herman, Professor Nuts, Rohan Gunter among others.

The event also encourages up-and-coming comedians and audience members alike to participate in the open-mic sessions as a means of unearthing new talent.

Comedytainment is produced by Imagine Dat Entertainment Agents (IDEAs), which is a comprehensive production company, providing services such as talent buying, booking agents, public relations and marketing agents and entertainment consultancy.
