The Bermuda Calypso and Comedy Masters Festival second round this past weekend at the Fourways Inn lived up to every expectation. Topping the show were Calypsonians Stan (Lord Necktie) Seymour, Duke Joell, June Casey, King Trott and David Moniz with their inimitable renditions spontaneously exciting singalongs and sustained applause from the overflow audience of locals and tourists alike.
Then the comedians came to the stage, each with their jokes, some drier than others, all funny, keeping Fourways alive with laughter and applause. First up was ‘Mr Versatile’ Denny Richardson. He was followed by former policeman John Dale, who did not even attempt to sing like a calypsonian, but rather like a newfangled Frank Sinatra, for which he compensated with a round of his Scottish jokes. Charles Jeffers and Stuart Hollis did their thing underlining the fact that no matter what age, legend or amateur, Bermuda has lots of talent.
