Jamaican Play 'Serious Business' Brings Sheer Comedy to New York

Promotions company Irish and Chin is bringing the hit comedy "Serious Business," which features Keith "Shebada" Ramsay and an all-star cast, to Brooklyn and Queens on June 5 and June 6, 2010. Written by Paul Obeale and directed by Michael Nicholson, "Serious Business" is a top-rate, hilarious play from the Stages productions camp that follows in the footsteps of their Bashment Granny success.

Opening to rave reviews and sold-out performances in Jamaica, a strong buzz for the debut of "Serious Business" has now taken over the New York Tri-state area. Capitalizing on the formula of theater and dancehall, Irish and Chin celebrated sold-out stagings of "Like Father Like Son" and "Bashment Granny" in 2009.

"We think this is a great way of bringing Jamaican theater live and direct to consumers in the New York Tri-state area," says Garfield "Chin" Bourne of Irish and Chin. "With the amount of things going on in this world, everyone needs laughter some times."

The gut-busting punch of "Serious Business" will surely keep audiences in stitches. In "Serious Business," one pastor finds himself amidst controversy in the church, home and street. As problems unfold for the pastor, his hidden agenda may just get exposed. With the church as the play's backdrop, sheer laughter embodies the play from start to finish.

Tickets for "Serious Business" are available in advance at numerous ticket outlets (log on to irishandchin.com). The Brooklyn show will take place on Saturday, June 5 at Tilden High School (doors open at 7:00 pm/showtime 8:00 pm), while the Queens show will go down on Sunday, June 6 at York College (doors open 5:30 pm - showtime 7:00 pm).

Sister Mary Margaret

SISTER MARGARET MARY, WHO WORKS FOR A LOCAL HOME HEALTH AGENCY WAS OUT MAKING HER ROUNDS WHEN SHE RAN OUT OF GAS.

AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT A GAS STATION WAS JUST A BLOCK AWAY.

SHE WALKED TO THE STATION TO BORROW A CAN OF GAS TO START & THEN DRIVE TO THE STATION FOR A FILL UP.

THE ATTENDANT REGRETFULLY TOLD HER THE ONLY GAS CAN HE OWNED HAD BEEN LOANED OUT BUT IF SHE WOULD WAIT, IT WAS SURE TO BE BACK SHORTLY.

SINCE THE NUN ! WAS ON THE WAY TO SEE A PATIENT SHE DECIDED NOT TO WAIT & SHE WALKED BACK TO THE CAR. AFTER LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO FILL WITH GAS, SHE SPOTTED A BEDPAN SHE WAS TAKING TO THE PATIENT.

ALWAYS RESOURCEFUL, SHE CARRIED IT TO THE STATION & FILLED IT WITH GASOLINE, & CARRIED IT TO HER CAR.

AS SHE WAS POURING THE GAS INTO THE TANK, TWO MEN WERE WATCHING FROM ACROSS THE STREET. ONE OF THEM TURNED TO THE OTHER & SAID, "IF IT STARTS, I'M TURNING CATHOLIC".
