Ity and Fancy Cat into sea­son 9

Jamaica Gleaner - - TWIST -

Home­grown com­edy is back in fo­cus and, on Sun­day nights, com­edy fans are warm­ing up for an­other sea­son of the Ity and Fancy Cat Show.

Now in its ninth year, the lo­cally pro­duced sketch com­edy se­ries re­turned with the sea­son pre­miere on Sun­day Novem­ber 13, the team of per­form­ers pok­ing fun at hot top­i­cal is­sues and run­ning hu­mor­ous spoofs on un­sus­pect­ing mem­bers of the pub­lic.

This sea­son brings some changes, in­clud­ing a mon­tage and open­ing se­quences and the re­moval of the live link seg­ment that used to be recorded be­fore a live stu­dio au­di­ence. This live seg­ment has been re­placed with dra­matic in-stu­dio links and in­tro­duc­tions. The pub­lic par­tic­i­pa­tion el­e­ment of the show has also been height­ened, with more hid­den cam­era gags and on-thestreet in­ter­ac­tions with fans.

A new seg­ment called ‘Char­ity and Cheers’ has been added as well. This is a spe­cial ini­tia­tive that will fea­ture en­ter­tain­ing per­for­mances by pri­mary schools stu­dents from all across the is­land and the shar­ing of in­spir­ing acts of char­ity as the duo and their spon­sors give back gen­er­ously to the coun­try and com­mu­ni­ties.
