Spend the evening with a professional idiot

Bill Maher, Steve-O launch new year’s laugh offensive

December 29, 2011
The Maui News

Five years ago, a regular stand-up comedy scene did not exist on Maui, but thanks to a handful of young up-and-coming comics that is rapidly changing. Although Maui still does not have its own comedy club, several bars and theaters are now incorporating live comedy into their event schedules. The catalyst of this was a combination of the Comedy Hui (led by Amanda Taulere) and performer/producer Brian Evans' Maui Celebrity Series. Since that time, the list of great comics who have come to perform on Maui (and provide opening-act slots for local comics) are Jim Gaffigan, Rob Schneider, Tom Green, Roseanne Barr, David Spade, Wanda Sykes, George Lopez, Kathy Griffin, Gabriel Iglesias and coming up on Sunday at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center's Castle Theater, Bill Maher.
