More world-class comedy from the
Maui Comedy Festival ohana

JUNE • JULy • AUGUST • SEPTEMBER

Catching the wave from the success of the 2014 Maui Comedy Festival, the producers are keeping the laughs going with a summer series featuring some of the most respected names in comedy. Starting with the epically droll master comedian, Todd Barry for an intimate night of comedy at Charley's Restaurant & Saloon in June, then it's off to the Maui Arts & Cultural Center for the rest of the 2015 Summer.

July brings the irreverent and critically-acclaimed Jim Jefferies, with his unique no-holds-barred standup that has sold out theaters worldwide. September delivers two amazing yet very different performances. First, Brad Williams takes the stage on the North Shore with his irreverent and brilliant observations and later in the month, the classic comedy of Sinbad. Ranked by Comedy Central as one of the top 100 standup comedians of all time, Sinbad is enjoying something of a renaissance these days with a style and charisma that continues to pack clubs and auditoriums alike.   And thanks to Tropical Storm Guillermo bumping him from his August date, October welcomes the multi-talented comic and actor Patton Oswalt to Maui for the first-time.

BRAD WILLIAMS

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10TH @ CHARLEY'S

Brad Williams has become one of the funniest, most in demand comedians working today. A California native, Brad started doing stand-up at age 19 and has been touring ever since. 
He has appeared on numerous TV shows including Legit, Deadbeat, Dave Attell’s Comedy Underground, Sam and Cat, Live at Gotham, the Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Mind Of Mencia, and Pitboss.

Brad’s one hour comedy special Brad Williams: Fun Size aired on Showtime to not only critical acclaim, but was Showtime’s highest rated comedy special of 2015. Brad’s show is high energy. Brad’s ability to make humorous observations on disability, relationships, sex, and race are winning over audiences and proving anyone can overcome their shortcomings.

SINBAD

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 24TH @ THE MACC

Ranked by Comedy Central as one of the top 100 standup comedians of all time, Sinbad has built a loyal following by taking the painful trials and embarassing tribulations of day-by-day life and throwing them back into his audiences' faces, causing an uproar of comedic hysteria. Although he's not any kind of choirboy, Sinbad is the son of a preacher man, and he decided to keep his comedy clean after his father attended one of his early performances. Up until that time, he had described his own comedic style as "semi-dirty." Sinbad says that he learned that night that "funny is funny," and noted that masters of dirty comedy -- such as Redd Foxx, Richard Pryor and Lenny Bruce -- had all been able to work clean without losing a step.
