In 2010, Juice Comedy, an innovative and fast-rising event organiser/production company, presented a concept that was both simple and interactive, yet unlike anything else in Toronto. It merely took some of the city’s favourite local and international comedians, and compiled them into two opposing teams. The result was the hilarious, side-splitting comedy battle of the year — “The Juice Cup: World Cup of Comedy”.
This Sunday November 17, inside the luxurious Toronto Centre for the Arts, the much-anticipated “The Juice Cup: Africa vs West Indies,” returns for a second year.
Presented by Ritz Caribbean Foods and named as one of the hottest tickets of the season by new and dedicated fans alike (nicknamed “Juiceheads”), this comedic battle, of epic proportion, is a not-to-be-missed show.
This night of bust-a-gut laughter features a lineup of six comedians, where celebrity judges and the audience collectively crown the winner. Trixx, who was arguably the most valuable player (MVP) of the 2012 champion African team, will be battling it out against the 2012 Team West Indies MVP, Jay Martin.
Martin vows this year’s outcome will be far different. His other teammates are Jean Paul and Sterling Scott, plus coaching the team is none other than DJ and radio host, Dr. Jay. Others representing Team Africa are Arthur Simeon, Toronto’s own “Bad Boy of Comedy”, Sharif, and coaching the team is MC Bonde of “The African Groove” radio show.
This fight for comedic supremacy is being hosted by G98.7 FM’s beloved morning hosts, Mark Strong and Jemeni.
Last year’s show was sold out, so audiences are encouraged to grab tickets early. Tickets start at $44.99 and can be purchased through TicketMaster and The Toronto Centre for the Arts Box Office. For more info call (647) 985-8423 or visit www.juicecomedytoronto.com.
