by Nemonie Cassells

If you are a Jamaican and don't love to laugh, I can tell you point blank… there is something wrong! I believe that Jamaicans are psychologically wired to appreciate a good piece of joke and trust me, you don't want a Jamaican to laugh at you… dem wi laugh yuh to scahn, bwoi I tell yuh ( they will laugh you to scorn)!

...Oliver Samuel's Flight 007!

I remember, as a child, watching the Lime Tree Lane series, which was a Jamaica comedy series aired on JBC (Jamaica Broadcasting Corporation), a Television in the late 1980s to 1990s.

I would crack up with great laughter when characters such as Miss Upton, Johnny, Ma’as Gussy and deaf ears Mary ( My favorite characters) open their mouths to speak! Loads of Fun!

Top Jamaican Comedians

Now, Lime Tree Lane is not the first and far from being the funniest comedy to come out of Jamaica, after all, we are/were home to legend playwright Patrick Brown and Jamaican comedians such as:

  • Charles Hyatt,
  • Oliver Samuels,
  • Miss Lou,
  • Glen “Titus” Campbell,
  • Blacka Ellis and
  • Volier “Maffy” Johnson 

...just to name a few. 

Top Jamaican Comedies

From these icons, some of the most hilarious Jamaican comedies of all time were born. Comedies like;

  1. Front Room
  2. Oliver at Large
  3. Oliver Large Abroad
  4. Oliver’s Posse
  5. Oliver and Pinocchio7
  6. Oliver and the Genie
  7. Class of ’73’
  8. Common Law
  9. Midnight at Puss Creek
  10. Titus in Town
  11. River Mumma and the Golden Table
  12. Smile Orange
  13. Cindy Relisha and the Dj Prince
  14. Ras Noah and the Hark
  15. Puppy Love
  16. Christopher Cum Buk US
  17. Run For Your Wife!

... are some of the vintage Jamaican comedies that lives on in our hearts. And by the way, here below is a video from one of Jamaica's most popular comedy icons...

Contemporary Jamaican Comedians

I personally prefer comedies from the above greats, where the humor was a little more sophisticated, less vulgar and less boisterous, however, we also enjoy great comedies from the newer Jamaican comedians such as;

  • Keith “Shebada” Ramsey
  • “Bad Boy Trevor” Reid
  • Andrea “Delcita” Wright
  • Dainty Bellanfonti
  • Mr. Handsome (formerly Girly)
  • and Maxwell “ Mr. Bashy” Grant

are far from boring and have young and old doubling over in laughter!

With newer comedies such as:

  1. Bashment Granny
  2. Shebada Comes to Town
  3. GhettOut
  4. Di Driva
  5. Like Father, Like Son
  6. The Politicians
  7. Bangarang
  8. De Weddin Scamma

... Jamaicans will have more than a barrel full of laughter to last a life time. 

Rated Jamaican Comedies

But how can I mention Jamaican comedies, and not mention the comedies of my own childhood, albeit comedies that I was not allowed to watch because they involved “big people bizniz (business)!”?

These include:

  • Granny Rules with Ma’as Big Pants, Pumpkin and Andy
  • Fire Inna Mi Wire with Girly 
  • Anda Mi Nose 
  • Mawma Man with Juky Jam
  • Passa Passa with Chu Chu &
  • Obeah Wedding

And I could go on and on!

Jamaica comedy (the brand) have reached far and wide, with our actors and comedians now leaving our island paradise with regularity to preform in other countries, such as the US, Canada and Europe, no joke (pun intended) :-)

Now go ahead and find yourself a nice Jamaican comedy to watch and laugh your troubles away, even if its just for a while!
