Jamaica Mek Wi Laugh an epic show

... as Demarco rips his pants on stage

Lady Renae's Jamaica Mek Wi Laugh's first staging at the Country Side Club on Tuesday night was epic for more reasons than one.

The sold-out event showcased a few of Jamaica's best comedians, including Leighton Smith, deejay-comedian Beetle Bailey, and recording artistes Twin of Twins.

Though the Twins delivered a brilliant set, which included performances of a few of their hit singles, it was another artiste that took the spotlight who was probably the highlight of the entire night.

Dancehall entertainer Demarco ripped his pants during his set and had to be surrounded by a few persons to avoid exposing his unmentionables as he exited the stage.

After performing a few of his most popular singles, including I Love My Life, Fallen Soldiers, and his controversial Ride It, he invited some female patrons on stage to dance with him. He was performing his song, Lazy Body, and proceeded to challenge the females. It turned out, however, that he would be the one faced with a challenge by the end of his set.

Everything was going well until just towards the end of his performance, the female patron he was dancing with jumped into his arms. And in showing off his dancing skills, he proceeded to put her on the floor. When he got up, however, it was discovered that he had ripped the pair of tight-fitting pink pants he was wearing. The crowd couldn't contain their laughter and neither could the deejay, who played down the unfortunate incident by laughing at himself.

"Somebody get me a towel mek mi wrap round mi, nuh. Jah know mi cah believe she tear mi pants. mi know it tight, but, oh gosh man!" he said chuckling.

Even as smartphones and tablets snapped pictures of the awkward moment, the entertainer showed he was a true professional and continued with his set until a group of persons surrounded him to facilitate his stage exit.

Members of the audience could be heard saying they would post pictures and videos of the artiste's experience on Facebook and YouTube as they laughed and declared that even if the other acts for the night flopped, Demarco's wardrobe malfunction would have been worth their $1,000-a-piece ticket.
