After turning on the laughs at LIME Comedy CafÈ on Wednesday, Jamaican comedy heavyweights Tony 'Paleface' Hendriks and Ity and Fancy Cat head up north the following day as the featured acts set to deliver 'yard-style' fun and livity at the International Feast of Laughter comedy show scheduled for this Saturday in Toronto, Canada.

They will be joined by veteran comic, storyteller and theatre stalwart from Trinidad and Tobago, Rhoma Spencer, as well as renowned Jamaican-Canadian comic actress and producer, Marcia Brown.

Pinky and Chrisy, a brand new Toronto-based, Jamaican comedy duo, will also make their debut appearance at the show.

Blakka Ellis will play host, and adding the spice of variety to the evening will be some exciting musical entertainment by new teen vocal group, Trilogi.

Produced by Kinteet Kompini and Leggy's Catering, the International Feast of Laughter is an event dedicated to showcasing colourful and diverse comedic entertainment in Canada, with a distinct Caribbean flavour.

This weekend's edition is the third in the annual series and takes place at the popular Jamaican Canadian Association in Toronto. An after-party follows at the same venue featuring musical selections by top Toronto disc jock, DJ Corey. Drinks and Jamaican delicacies will be on sale.
