The Maui Weekly

Maui, are you ready for the islands' biggest comedy event of the year? On Friday, March 30, in the Castle Theater at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center (MACC), Hawai'i's comedic living legends will perform together on one stage beginning at 7:30 p.m. With over 100 years of combined comedy experience entertaining people locally, nationally and worldwide, Na Ali'i of Comedy will provide nonstop laughter for a night of good fun.

Frank De Lima has entertained us with family friendly local-style humor for 36 years. This 14-time Na Hoku Hanohano Award winner has been busy in recent years, visiting Hawai'i schools with his student enrichment program.

Ed Ka'ahea is the last surviving member of the iconic comedy trio, Booga Booga, and has over 30 years in the entertainment business.
