Wow this man has been making Jamaicans, and others, laugh for years. His comedies/plays are great. He should be recognized for that if not anything else.

Webmaster's Note:
Oliver is often described as the Jamaican "King of Comedy" performing both stand up and comic theatre.

Samuels fame had its roots from the Jamaica Broadcasting Corporation's television series Oliver At Large, which was created by producer Calvin Butler and playwright Aston Cooke. In this series, Oliver played his alter ego Olivius Adams, aka Oliver.

Abroad, he is known as Jamaica's Bill Cosby, and is a brand name that is synonymous with Jamaica and laughter. Samuels is widely regarded as one of the funniest talents to emerge from the Caribbean.

In addition to his work with the local car company, Oliver Samuels was recently selected by the wire transfer service Unitransfer to star in a series of advertisements that will market their products to Florida's Caribbean community.

Samuels also, in recent times, piloted the launch of Oliver's Yaad Cyaad which features Samuels giving instructions in Patois and standard English. The unique feature of Patois prompts is a first for the international calling-card industry. Oliver Samuels is known to speak perfect patois!

As well as having a large following in Jamaica and other Caribbean islands, Samuels frequently tours Britain and North America, playing to the Caribbean ex-pat community.
