Jokes rained down on the gathering and laughter reigned all evening, as resident hosts Ity and Fancy Cat guided a fair-sized crowd to another exceptional experience in the LIME Comedy Café entertainment series recently.

Starting off with a succession of interactive games and activities, the duo seemed to derive as much amusement as they dished out, while coaxing unplanned performances out of reluctant patrons. This included a riotous impromptu skit about increased bus fares, with Ity and Fancy cat as bus driver and conductor, and a member of the audience as passenger.

Effectively employing rhyme and rhythm, comedic DJ [or rapping comedian] Prince Zimboo got the evening started on a high note and left the audience wanting more as he made way for Colas. Evoking echoes of 'Nomadz' whom they list among their influences, the young dub poetry quartet had an outstanding Comedy Café debut as they shared catchy rhythms and infectious lines, and interacted confidently with the appreciative crowd.

With a clever observation about the size of Fancy Cat's stomach, and wondering aloud about the possibility of pregnancy [and the probability of Ity being the father], rising comic star Dufton Shepherd got chuckles flowing immediately upon his entry to the stage and took it up several notches to end on a crescendo of laughter.

Showing off her 'baby bump' Kathy Grant [and company] was the height of irreverent hilarity. She brought the house down and steered the show to a raucous, rip-roaring climax, regaling the crowd with humorous accounts of the physical and emotional challenges she's currently encountering as she navigates her new role as a prospective mother. Pregnancy notwithstanding, the 'growing' comic actress is looking forward to her appearances on the next season of the Ity and Fancy Cat Show and TV audiences can expect even more fun as 'Mr. Sar' is forced to deal with a pregnant 'Miss Jennifer'.

LIME Comedy Café is held every last Wednesday at South Beach Café in Kingston.
