Lord Funny

Profile:
Lord Funny (Donric Williamson born May 23,1941)
One of Trinidad's best humorous calypsonians, Funny continues after three decades to be popular in the tents, where his outfit each year is often as entertaining as his song. Grew up in Morvant and his sobriquet was first a childhood nickname for his big brother passed on to him. From small, he sang and played guitar 'on the block' in his neighborhood. He entered a local calypso competition in 1965 with his composition Dozen Men on the Ground. He began in 1966 after King Solomon acted to get his career going. He appeared that year in the CDC Calypso Theatre tent singing his memorable patriotic number Sweet Sweet Trinidad and the suggestive Vicey in 1966 at the Calypso Theatre. Sweet Sweet Trinidad remained popular and reappeared years later on his first album. Funny stayed two more years at the Calypso Theatre with Food is Food and Good Advice in 1967 and Supposing It Happen True and Girl Days in 1968. He took third with Buy Local Man in the 1969 competition. More importantly, he had a huge hit with Father Brown at OYB that year and it was released as a single with his other song for the year, Pick 'n' Patch on Antillana. He continued to release at least one single each year for several on Antillana.
