The Comedy Hui strives to deliver wacky, character-based, clean comedy that is fun for the whole family.  Performances are constructed by audience suggestion and similar to the TV show, “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”  The cast creates scenes through a series of fast-paced games and improvised musical numbers.  Each show is different because each audience is unique, helping to co-create the show with the actors on stage. 

Produced and directed by Amanda Taulere, The Comedy Hui consists of four women (Alexis Ziegler, Rachel Deboer, Karen Stavash and Kore Taylor) and four men (Tom Althouse, John Ziegler, Chino LaForge and Adam Wright).  A live band, including local guitarist Jack Piskorski and drummer John McMullen of Soul Package, accompanies the actors. 


Laugh out loud fun and get your giggles on at the MACC one Friday a month over the summer:  June 4, July 16 and August 20.  On June 4, a portion of the proceeds will benefit Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Maui. Tickets are selling for $20 adults and $12 children aged 12 and under.  To order, call the Box Office at 242-SHOW (7469) or go online to
