A quartet of comedians from the hit television comedy show "Sullivan & Son" will "stop in for a quick one" at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center (The MACC) on Saturday, Aug. 24, at the McCoy Studio Theater at 7:30 p.m. Of course, this "quick one" makes reference to the fact that their TV show takes place in a bar, ala the iconic long-running comedy series, "Cheers."
"Sullivan & Son," TBS's hit half-hour comedy series, is executive-produced by Vince Vaughn ("The Break-Up"), Peter Billingsley ("Iron Man") and show-runner Rob Long ("Cheers"). The first season garnered a large fan base, averaging over 2.5 million viewers per episode.
Diane Werts of Newsday has raved about "Sullivan & Son:" "Surprise! A laugh-out-loud hilarious show."

In "Sullivan & Son," Steve Byrne plays Steve Sullivan, a successful corporate attorney from New York who brings his girlfriend home for his father's 60th birthday and learns that his Irish-American father, Jack Sullivan (Dan Lauria), and Korean mother, Ok Cha (Jodi Long), are preparing to sell Sullivan & Son, a multi-generational-family business bar in a working-class Pittsburgh neighborhood. It doesn't take Steve long to realize that where he really belongs is in the old neighborhood, running the bar. And so begins Steve's quest for a more meaningful and rewarding life behind the bar.
