Phat Groove Entertainment's Bad Boys of Comedy show lived up to its name. It was a total laugh fest, so for a comedy lover like myself, the show was a hit.
I arrived at the Rainforest Theater in the Wyndham Hotel a little late, but thankfully the show had started on a mellow note with The Illest reggae fusion band, so I didn't miss any of the comedy action. (And just as an aside, The Illest set the mood appropriately with their song selections, ranging from their originals to contemporary popular songs from artists like Bob Marley and Adele.) They really got the crowd going. And just when you were ready for more host comedian Rayzor got the show started as he put the crowd in a tizzy with his endless jokes about celebrities and the lives they lead.
The first act of the night was Bahamian comedian Demetrius. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry when it came to Demetrius. And before he had even told the first joke he was already a comical sight, prancing onto the stage looking like super baby in a bonnet, poofy shoes and cape.
He regaled us with his humor about raising children and the comical life children lead when with grandparents. While the crowd was in stitches, there were moments during his act when I thought Demetrius tried too hard, because I didn't know whether to laugh at the joke, or at him in general. Nevertheless, he was good.
Then of course there was the Bahamian Mr. Brown, who took to the stage periodically to do his Mr. Brown booty tremble. It was pretty funny, but to be honest I really wanted to see the bad boys.
And the first one to bring it was Johnathan Martin, a comedian who has appeared not only in "Bad Boys of Comedy" but also "Def Jam" and "Comic View". Now talk about hilarious. This dude's show started with energy and he never let up.
He talked about the good old days when life was harder but easier. He talked about being raised by his loving, but thrifty mother and strict, but cheap father. Although he joked that his mother often bought irregular clothes and how he had to suffer wearing them throughout the years and his father often switched religions so he wouldn't have to buy his children presents or food, there was a message in what he was saying, and it was funny. The topics he addressed were something the people could all relate to.
If I thought that Martin was funny, then A.G. White was totally uproarious. He was a Caucasian comedian with an unfamiliar black audience but he was confident with it and threw caution to the wind when it came to telling his jokes.
He went from topics like how to cuss properly, growing up in New York to how stereotypical the world can be generally. And one of the best parts of his act for me was the Jamaican accent he used to add flavor to several jokes. But what really made him stand out to me throughout the night was how he entwined popular songs into his act to make his jokes almost three dimensional. And he was unafraid to cross boundaries and make jokes about himself and black people. But by no means were his jokes racist. They were applicable and I can honestly say he brought tears to my eyes -- that's how hard I laughed.
And just when I thought it couldn't get any better, the headliner, Brooklyn Mike brought the house down. Although his subject matter was limited to sex and relationships, for the most part he was the perfect cap to the event.
Brooklyn Mike's performance was stellar in describing why it's easier on females during a breakup than the male. He went into comedic detail about the crazy things people do for love even during a tumultuous relationship. He acted his jokes out and really got the crowd involved in the joke-telling. The only sore point for me in his performance was when he made a joke about robbery-rape role playing considering the recent headlines in local newspapers. But the crowd didn't seem to get too down on that point and he kept on riddling off hard-hitting jokes. By the end of the night my tummy was aching from the bellyful of laughs. The Bad Boys of Comedy show was definitely one of the best comedy shows I've attended recently. It was on point from start to finish. I was not disappointed.
Edon Moss is one of those enterprising natives of Acklins. It seems many who came from out of the bosom of Acklins have been synonymous with proactivity. They are inclined to take charge of situations. There is this flourish that they exude. For some observers, the characteristic is too extravagant.
What can't be legitimately argued against however is their ability to attract attention. In the history of the island of Acklins, none of its natives have been as flamboyant, grounded in fanfare, as Edon Moss. Of course, he is much better known as Cassius Moss. The loquacious one was a loud and excitable voice for sports during the mid to last years of the 1960s, into the advent year of Independence (1973) and well beyond into the 1980s. In this special independence sports feature, his role in the post-1973 sports era is saluted.
During much of the 10 years prior to 1973, Moss was the biggest boxing highlight figure in the nation. There were those who were better. None though, had the flair of Cassius Moss. None could put fans into the Nassau Stadium like he did. He modeled himself in the ring after the truly great one, Cassius Clay (who later became known more famously as Muhammad Ali). Moss danced around and wore the red tassels adorned on white boxing shoes just like Clay/Ali. More importantly for Moss and the boxing fan base here in The Bahamas, he was boisterous, boastful and self-promoting just like the American heavyweight champion.
The fact that Moss did not win nearly as much as Clay/Ali did, mattered not at all. The fans came to see him get "put in his place" and certainly there were those who wanted him to succeed. His boxing career basically came to an end when Moss suffered a fractured right wrist during a bout. In surgery, a steel piece was inserted.
He made one unsuccessful attempt to return to boxing, but had to give it up. Boxing's loss was a big gain for sloop sailing. Not to be deterred by the injury that left him incapable of being a fit opponent in the ring or continuing to appropriately turn the stiff steering wheel of his truck, he opted for sloop sailing and the security business.
Needless to say, the Acklins' business zeal enabled him to succeed in security even more so than in the trucking business. As for sports, he was to blaze a new trail in sloop sailing. After him, would come 'King' Eric Gibson and Eleazor Johnson (two other Acklins Islanders) to promote sloop sailing, but it was Cassius Moss who led the way. He built the 'A' Class Sea Plague and transferred his
loquaciousness from boxing to sloop sailing. He packed Montagu Bay whenever his boat sailed.
He inspired the influx of Johnson, Gibson and many others who felt they could do just as well in boosting the sport. There were no others like Cassius Moss however. He was unique, whether with the Sea Plague or the Flying Eagle. He made his mark and is due far more credit than he gets for cementing the resurgence of sloop sailing in the country. Some of his highlights include being honored at the 1975 Family Island regatta as the leading sailing light from Acklins as a participant of the national water sport extravaganza; and capturing the Royal Race during the visit of Her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth II in 1895.
In the last two decades, his presence in sloop sailing has been infrequent but what he did to make the sport easily the most popular pastime in the country was immeasurable. It is fitting to pay tribute to his contributions to sports development during the past 40 years of independence. The Bahamian sporting community is indeed indebted to one Edon 'Cassius' Moss.
