PASSES-SPLASH2

INAUGURAL MAUI COMEDY FESTIVAL COMING TO LAHAINA OVER
HALLOWEEN WEEKEND – OCTOBER 30TH – NOVEMBER 2ND
FEATURING HANNIBAL BURESS, REGGIE WATTS, TIG NOTARO,
MARC MARON, AISHA TYLER AND MORE
(Lahaina, HI) – April 30, 2014 – From October 30th through November 2nd, the “Best Island
in the World” (according to Conde Nast Traveller readers) will play host to the first annual
Maui Comedy Festival. This event brings a three-day, multi-venue comedy showcase to the
historic town of Lahaina on the island of Maui. Attendees will have the chance to experience
more than 30 of today’s funniest and smartest comics, including Hannibal Buress, Reggie
Watts, Tig Notaro, Marc Maron and Aisha Tyler.
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 15th, 2014.
