Organiser Ian Ity Ellis, says the much-anticipated end of year event is expected to bring smiles to the faces of all in attendance. “Comedy Cook-Up is always a great way to celebrate the holiday season. Patrons will always have something to look forward to. It’s an event of laughter and fun, a great destresser and the best part is that it is family-oriented, so there is something for everyone to enjoy,” said the Comedian and Motivational Speaker. 

“It’s a great melting pot of comedic fun. Everyone on the lineup will have the audience enjoying themselves.”

The event has become known for incorporating a range of comedic deliveries with performances from overseas and local acts, as well as comedic veterans and newcomers, all in one setting. 

“It’s a great melting pot of comedic fun. Everyone on the lineup will have the audience enjoying themselves. We have acts from all over. The hilarious, Haitian-American Wil Sylvince will be making his long-awaited return since his last performance on the show in 2013; and [he] will add the usual special international flavour to the 2019 edition of the family-friendly feast of laughter,” Ellis continued.

Veteran entertainer Dahlia Harris will also join the impressive line-up
