This year's cast is as follows:
Angelo Lascelles is a passionate and versatile actor who has always been determined to take risks. Since his first public performance in 2006, he has had roles in several movies, including “No Country for a White Hero” (2014), “A Caribbean Dream” (2015), “Simba’s Pride” (2015) and “From Bussa to Barrow and Beyond” (2016) and more. His love for theatre came while attending The Lester Vaughan School. He did Theatre Arts when he started Fourth Form and was one of the first students to do so. From there he enrolled in the Barbados Community College’s Theatre Arts programme and has been performing ever since. Angelo, who joined the Laff-it-Off cast for a performance in Boston, loves Theatre Arts and during his short career he has used his background in this field for the purpose of customer service training, public service announcements as well as health campaigns.
Janine White in various roles
Janine White is an avid writer of poetry, short stories, plays and dramatic presentations. She has done so many things and been involved in various aspects of the creative arts since her days at The St Michael School. She is a banker by profession but enjoys time on stage as a performer. In 2006 and 2011, she won bronze and silver awards for her entries in NIFCA. Her hilarious self-penned dramatic piece titled “This Body Is Not Mine” won her the Prime Minister’s Scholarship and a Gold Award at NIFCA 2012. She also won an award for the Most Promising Presentation by an Individual. After winning the Miss Big & Beautiful pageant in 2006, she went on to represent the country in the regional pageant and came second. In 2013, Janine was recognised by Barbados Faces as one of the distinguished women in Barbados. In 2014, she joined the cast of Laff-it-Off full time after travelling with them to the USA the year before.
Peta Alleyne as Wilhemina Herrassofat
Peta joined the cast of Laff-it-Off in 1988 and like the other members, her aim is to make people laugh. A sap for a romantic story and a bit of a prude, the actress, broadcaster and producer, notes that there is no lack of material in Barbados to give a comical perspective and that special Laff-it-Off treatment. For the woman who loves Barbados’ passion in our faith, our democracy and our beaches, she is glad to be once again joining the cast and crew that has given her a lifetime of memorable and rewarding moments on stage.
At 19 years old, Kyle 'kyKycc' Cozier is the baby of this year’s cast of Laff-it-Off. You might have seen him on YouTube performing with Carl Alff Padmore in Alffing Around to the Max, perhaps at a Speech Day or other school-based event, or with a Gentle Steps Academy Production but this is his first major “show time performance”. A Psychology major at the Barbados Community College, Kyle doesn’t consider himself a comedian but a performer who loves to see people smiling. His hope is to be a full-time actor and to one day catch a big break landing a role in a Hollywood blockbuster movie. However, he is studying Psychology, so he could earn a living in the event he doesn’t realise that goal but he has found a way to incorporate the two fields. kyKycc is his stage name which he started using when he was the master of ceremonies for the Scotiabank Junior Calypso Monarch.
Dario 'Mr Red' Walrond may be a new comer to Laff-it-Off, but the first time he touched the stage was in NIFCA 2002 during his days attending Society Primary School. He went to NIFCA 10 years in a row and won numerous awards - gold, silver, most promising and a lot of different special awards. He did Theatre Arts at CXC level at Christ Church Foundation School. From there, Dario enrolled in the Barbados Community College’s Associate Degree in Music programme and honed his love for music. An aspiring soca artist who goes by the moniker Mr Red, he is also a song writer, producer, vocal trainer, and he was lead vocalist with Strategy, the Energy Band. He is thoroughly enjoying getting back into the theatre and drama groove.
