The show will also feature performances by guest artists and the emcee will be former Junior Monarch, Eddie Element Beaupierre.

“It’s better than any tent, any quarter-final, any semi-final, and any final; you’ll laugh so much your mouth will hurt you,” Beaupierre promised the public, before thanking the sponsors and CEO of DASPA Benoit Bardouille.

Contributions from the show’s proceeds will be donated to the Children’s Ward of the Princess Margaret Hospital as well as to the Caribbean All Port Sports.  (PR)
