The ninth annual Comedy Clash showcased some of the best comedic talent representing Trinidad and Jamaica. The show, which is the brainchild of comedians Jay Martin and Jean Paul, offered up good, clean humour to decide which of these rival nations is funnier. Toronto’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre played host to the sold out crowd on Mother’s Day, which came as a surprise and a blessing to the show organizers.
A sold out crowd flooded Toronto’s St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts for comedian Trixx’s Unspoken Words last Saturday night where many chose to get some laughs during Mother’s Day weekend.
With the theatre dimly lit and chairs reclined, producers, artists, directors and fellow industry people were ready to take in the Reel World Film Festival Music Video Night. The 13th annual festival showcased 24 North American music videos ranging in genres from hip-hop and dance to folk.
In many ways, photography is the art of seeing rather than simply looking – viewing the world in ways that go beyond the obvious.

The warm atmosphere, the clinking of glasses and the chatter that filled the room were indications of a successful night. Toronto’s corporate community, youth dignitaries and prominent youth organizations came together under one roof, the swank House of Moments, to collaborate efforts to inspire the minds of the youth in our communities, with the Love Is What Love Does event presented by Tha Love Project.
