The brainchild of native Hawaiian and veteran comic Bo Irvine, Comedy Polynesia at Sharkey's Comedy Club lets English-speaking tourists in on island in-jokes as locally beloved standups strike up a luau of ribbing laughs. Irvine—who won Last Comic Standing's 2008 Hawaii Showcase and has opened for acts such as George Carlin—joins up with funny buddy Ken “Kento-san” Komoto, master of the balloon animal. Together they don floral shirts and regale audiences with relatable regional humor and jokes that capture travelers' first jaw-dropping glimpse at the ocean and first realization that the snowsuits they packed will be useless.
