Jamaica vs Trinidad Comedy Clash - Sun May 10 @ Queen Elizabeth Theatre, Toronto, ON--Two Shows!

Two countries ONE winner. JAMAICA, TRINIDAD get ready for the biggest world Caribbean comedy show ever

The first two events were held in Toronto in November 2007,2008 and was sold out despite little advertising. One email blast was all it took

Remembering Marvin Gaye -- 25 Years Later

Yesterday marked the 25th year anniversary of Motown superstar Marvin Gaye's death. The R&B artist whose music influenced many other artists, was killed by his father, Marvin Gaye Sr, back on April Fool's Day 1984 during an argument just a day shy of his 45th birthday. Best known for hits such as "Sexual Healing," "Heard it Through the Grapevine" and "What's Going On," Gaye was also a songwriter, composer, musician and record producer. Last year, Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him as #6 on their list of Greatest Singers of all time. A candlelight tribute ceremony was held at sunset yesterday afternoon at his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in California. Today would have been his 70th birthday.
