The local television landscape is set to experience an entertaining jolt tonight when the hilarious new half hour comedy show, 'See It Deh!' premieres on TVJ at 9 pm.

Hendriks, though he has been off the local entertainment scene for a while, focusing on his stand-up comedy career by working the international comedy circuit in the UK , and US, is no stranger to the Jamaican entertainment landscape, having previously produced, created and starred in the very successful, 'Paleface Point of View', as well as a number of hit plays including the iconic, Laugh Jamaica.

For 'See It Deh!' Hendriks has pulled together an eclectic and talented bunch of familiar and new faces including Dr Michael Abrahams, who has been steadily making a name for himself as a comedian, writer of edgy articles; and hilarious poems that provoke much thought and laughter.

The cast will also feature Carla 'Moore Mayhem' Moore, writer, actress, educator and vlogging sensation; Kathy Grant, character actress and rising star of stand-up comedy: and Ricky Rowe, writer and actor. In addition to introducing new faces to the local television audiences, 'See It Deh!' will also be introducing the writing talents of Adrian Campbell and Tristan Alleyne, creators of the local satirical website, Ungrateful Soup.

'See It Deh!' will air from April 3 to May 22.
