First-Ever Maui Comedy Fest Boasts Insane Lineup, Dream Location


It’s hard to top the thrill of live comedy, but placing live comedy within a few hundred feet of gorgeous Hawaiian sunsets may take the cake.

The first-ever Maui Comedy Festival will take place this Halloween weekend, from October 30 through November 2, in Hawaii. There are a ton of a big names on the lineup this year, including Aisha Tyler, Reggie Watts, Hannibal Buress, Tig Notaro, and Marc Maron. Tickets and schedule information can be found here.

In addition to brilliant stand-up performances, the festival will feature unique events, including a live taping of The Green Room with Paul Provenza, a special edition of This Is Not Happening hosted by Ari Shaffir and live podcast recordings of Girl on Guy with Aisha Tyler and The Crabfeast podcast with Jay Larson and Ryan Sickler.

The festival will take place at the most unique and iconic venues in Lahaina town, including the 680-seat Maui Theater, home of the world-renowned ‘Ulalena show; the salty and intimate Lahaina Yacht Club; and Fleetwood’s on Front St., the eponymous restaurant of legendary Fleetwood Mac drummer, Mick Fleetwood. Fleetwood’s on Front St. will serve as the festival’s centerpiece and main watering hole, where all three floors will be packed with laughter – from stand-up on the rooftop at sunset to a genuine mainland comedy club vibe in the cellar lounge.

“Maui is known for not just our natural beauty and world class hotels, but also first-rate entertainment,” said Maui Mayor Alan Arakawa. “We have international film festivals, hula shows, live concerts and now this A-list of visiting comedians. I look forward to attending the Maui Comedy Festival myself and I encourage residents and visitors alike to do the same so we can all laugh the night away together.”

VIP and early-bird passes are now on sale for $199 and $399. Both passes give full access to the entire run of the festival – 3 nights and over 20+ shows. Individual tickets will go on sale August 15, 2014.
