Bringing down the house

You’ve seen him on Showtime Comedy Club, laughed with him for years on BET Comic View and now you can be front and center to see Arnez J, the hottest comedian on the circuit right now.

Known for his comedic antics, life-like portrayals of everyday situations and humorous characterizations of people he is bound to make even the most serious of people roll over in stitches this weekend.

A comedy fest like this doesn’t come around everyday so don’t be the last one to join the masses in the Sheraton Nassau Resort ballroom tonight at 9:30 to see this comedy king in action.

Organizer of the event, Nelson Armaly, says having Arnez J headline the event was a no-brainer. When the comedy fest was being planned he knew that the comedy extraordinaire had to be a part of it.

Sharing the stage with the BET giant will be the renowned one and only African king of comedy, Michael Blackson, who played a side character in the 2005 film “Next Friday”.

“Blackson is known as an attention stealer and he’s good at what he does. We thought he would be a great complement to Arnez J’s performance with his style of comedy,” says Armaly.

The comedians had the opportunity to experience Bahamian culture prior to the event and incorporate it into their acts. Armaly says this event is meant to help people let off some steam and laugh at themselves and everyday situations.

“What I really hope people will like about the event is that it isn’t something to worry about. It will be clean fun with little to no profanity, especially from Arnez J. He has a style where he believes telling a joke can still be funny without the curse words dotted every so often. He will make you laugh without cringing. He’s the kind of comedian that can make you laugh without saying words. His performance is not one dimensional. He will make the whole stage his performance area and move around and have fun rather than hug the mike stand all night and throw out punch lines. It will really be a great event.”
