Critics say comedy show also appears to invoke stereotypes of African-Caribbean men.

One of the actors in the Famalan comedy sketch called "Jamaican Countdown" scheduled to be aired on BBC channel three tomorrow, August 23, is defending the sketch which has been receiving public backlash from the Jamaican communities at home and in the Diaspora since morning.
