In a about a week from now, preparations at the Conference Centre will be coming to a head, as the popular entertainment stage becomes the venue once again for the 1000 Laughs series, which returns with the Night of 1008 Laughs and Music.
The night of August 1, this year, will ring with uncontrolled laughter, as comedian after comedian delivers on their promise to give patrons a laugh for their money.
However, the show will not be complete without the music segment, which will be ably taken care of by two of the nation's best musicians.
On the female corner and blazing the night brightly for EKB records and contemporary Ghanaian music, will be the lovely and talented Becca.
After introducing herself to Ghana's music industry with her hit single 'You lied to me,' featuring Kwabena Kwabena, Becca has become a household name, not because of her excellent musical talent, but for her beautifully crafted stage performances, as was evident in her debut on the Ghana Music Awards stage in April of this year.
She had both style and control, attributes that most established musicians would kill to possess.
Her music has been enjoying airplay, with more gig performances coming her way, her recent being sharing a stage with Nigerian music icons P-Square, D'banj and Don Jazi. She featured South Africa's Music Legend, Hugh Masekela, on her debut album, which is a feat not many can boast of.
Her addition to the bill would ensure that the 1008 Laughs and Music is a rousing success, and that is more of a promise than anything else.
Wutah, in the other corner, will cater to the needs of their numerous fans who cannot wait to dance to their latest addition to the Ghanaian music collection, 'Koto Sa.'
Wutah is a reggae/hiplife duo, comprising Daniel Morris (Risky) and Frank Osei (Papa Virus or PV).
The group was first formed when they collaborated to perform in a programme at the Wesley Grammar Secondary School in Accra, some years ago.
The name Wutah is a Hausa word, which means fire, and since their debut onto the music scene, they have been giving Ghanaians nothing less than "more fire".
The two came into the limelight when they placed second during the maiden edition of the Nescafe Africa Revelation music competition in Accra.
Their debut album, Anamontuo, with songs like Adonko, Gossie Gander, and the ever green Big Dreams, earned them an unprecedented 11 Ghana Music Award nominations at the 2006 edition of the awards, with the song Big Dreams winning the Reggae Song of the Year.
Since the success of their debut album, they have performed at several shows in Ghana, the UK, US and Nigeria among several others.
Add to this mix of music talents comedians Basketmouth, Gbenga Adeyinka 1st, Gordon and Koffi, and one has a programme fit for the gods.
The organisers, Charterhouse, and their sponsors MTN and Chairman Beer from ABL, are leaving no stone unturned to guarantee an unparallelled show.
