The sunshine city new comedy series “PORTMORE CRACK-UP”

“Portmore Crack Up” a live comedy series is set for Sunday, January 25, at Klub Klymaxx on the roof Portmore Pine Plaza at 7:30pm


Spearheading the laugh marathon, for this inaugural edition, will be Jamaica’s most prolific international comic, Tony ‘Paleface’ Hendriks.  Hendriks, who currently works out of London and has been making major waves on the comedy scene in Europe and North America, will be sharing the “…Crack-Up” stage with high-riding crowd favourites: Ity & Fancy Cat; the riotously-hilarious Elva; and new comic star Rohan Gunter.


This new series taking place in Portmore means that “Crack-Up” has made a full circle back to its place of origin.  Portmore is the genesis for live, local, stand-up comedy where the “Crack-Up” brand began. The first “Crack-Up” was staged in December 1999 at the now defunct Cactus night club as a birthday bash for one Alton Hugh Hardware, also called ‘Fancy Cat’.  This was followed by the “Backyaad Crack-Up” series in March 2004.  This latter series, initiated by Chris “Johnny” Daley and produced in collaboration with Ellis International Ltd, provided regular laughter, every month, for over three years and showcased all the top, local comedians and several overseas guest comics.


Ten years later, “Crack-Up” is back in the municipality of Portmore under the production of Ellis International Ltd, in collaboration with Klub Klymaxx, and with the blessings and support of the Portmore Chamber of Commerce & Industry.  This grand return means that residents can now look forward to miles of smiles and floods of laughter on the last Sunday of each month, with the promise of top-class entertainment; innovative variety; and exciting opportunities for audience participation.


Another feature of the new “…Crack-Up” series will be a special ‘ticket delivery service’ organised by the producers in association with Portmore’s largest cab service, Nice ‘n’ Easy Tours & Taxi.  With the new system, persons buying two, or more, pre-sold tickets can avoid a trip to ticket outlets by calling 989-6500 or 456-0505 and have their “Portmore Crack-Up” tickets delivered to residences and business places in Portmore and adjoining communities.  At a cost of $1,000.00/each, pre-sold tickets are also available at: The Card Centre, 78 Slipe Road, Cross Roads; and Fuel – the place for fashion, Shop# 64, Portmore Pines Plaza.  At-the-door price will be $1,200.00/each.


“Portmore Crack-Up” is rated M for Mature.  Sponsors are: Klub Klymaxx; FAME 95FM; HYPE TV;; and Taboo (exotic drink).
