Laff It Off

Com­mu­nity The­atre Pro­duc­tions first devel­oped Laff-​it-​Off in Sep­tem­ber 1985 as a result of the need to “pro­mote pop­u­lar the­atre in Bar­ba­dos”. The com­pany pro­duced the pop­u­lar show for & years from 1985 to 1992. Today now in its 28th year the show is owned by Laff-​it-​Off Pro­duc­tions Inc, directed by Cecily Spencer-​Cross and pro­duced and Man­aged by Ian Est­wick (also the Direc­tor of the company)

Laff-​it-​Off includes estab­lished artists Peta Alleyne as Wil­hem­ina Her­ras­so­fat. Chrispin Hack­ett & Toni-​Ann John­son in var­i­ous roles as well as, well-​known singer Troy Spe­cial and actor Ishi­aka McNeil in var­i­ous roles. Addi­tion­ally Laff-​it-​Off has also been known to act as a launch pad for sev­eral interns, stu­dents and young actors and actresses.

Laff-​it-​Off, which was orig­i­nally offered from Decem­ber to March is now typ­i­cally pre­sented in the months of Jan­u­ary to March. The show takes a satir­i­cal look at local and regional sce­nar­ios, pol­i­tics and social inter­ests and its flex­i­ble pro­duc­tion design allows for the inclu­sion of “improv” sketches of late break­ing activ­i­ties and news from the region.

The pro­duc­tion is also often exported to other aisles such as St. Lucia, Trinidad & Tobago, New York, Boston, Toronto and Lon­don.

This years install­ment is called “Ca Piss & Peppah”
