Saturday, April 20th Rickey D, The Wyland Brothers, Ricky Notnice and (Montreal Dancehall) presented an installment of You Got Jokes...this was by far one of the best attended and funnier shows in some time. 

It was great to see the close to packed house in the newly renovated Desjardins Théàtre CEGEP André Laurendeau looking lovely and holding their bellies with that laugh cramp we all know too well when we are getting our laugh on!  The show was on point and I appreciate that it was well organized – the comedians were funny and really brought the house down.

I got the chance to interview a very humble Tony Rock – not only is he hella funny, he’s clearly intelligent has very strong family values and really is on the brink of breaking free from his brother, Chris Rock’s, shadow and making his mark as a class act on his own.

An upcoming stand up comedian, Sidney Castillo had me rolling.  He is definitely going to make his mark in his new role on the revamped and totally new In Living Colour, Fly Girls and all! Local Eddy King got some time in and stole a few laughs during his set and a receptive crowd roared when Marshall Brandon came on.  The previous You Got Jokes edition also has him and the host, Zack Johnson holding it down when they repped the comedy south of the border in their US vs Canada edition and he put down the jokes!  A definite stand out. 

Some jokes were made at our own Mawga K’s expense, who took on the role of DJ – he took them on in good nature and next time will be on his cues,cause if not, those DJs will rip into him again.

A thoroughly enjoyable evening and a well attended event that has undoubtedly left Montrealers ready for the next installment of who got jokes.
