Popular stand-up comedy duo, Ity and Fancy Cat, has recently headlined a three-city tour of the UK performing in Bristol, Manchester and London as part of the ‘Laff From Yaad’ comedy extravaganza.

The tour, which began on May 27 and finished May 30, included performances from UK comedians Slim and Smash and Dizzle the Comedian, while Ity and Fancy Cat brought along Prince Pine and Danelle Di ‘The Rebel’ as part of the Jamaican contingent.

The comedians were hosted at a welcome reception by the Jamaica National Building Society UK Representative Office at the Brixton Cultural Archives on May 25 where they had a chance to relax and mingle with the special invited guests before embarking on the tour.

In a short address, Hamilton welcomed the comedians to London and reiterated that the building society was fully in support of Jamaican art and culture, both at home and abroad.
