January 16              Comedy U & The Female Comics of Hawaii Present: “Love For CC” – A FUNDRAISER COMEDY SHOW

On January 3, 2019 Hawaii’s Comedy Scene lost one of our up and coming bright stars – CC. The moment CC took to the stage, she was star in the making. Her sense of style would make a lasting first impression on that audience, as she would walk up to the stage and grab the microphone. On Wednesday January 16, 2019 Comedy U will be dedicating the night for CC with an all open mic night, with a $7 donation from comedians to sign up for stage time. There will be a raffle & merch sales with 100% of the proceeds to be donated to CC’s Ohana. We hope you can show up and show your LOVE FOR CC

February 20            The 4-7-10 CLEAN Version

The 4-7-10 format is a mixture of “Open Mic” and “Gong Show”. Comedians are all guaranteed a minimum of 4 minutes stage time…if the audience is laughing and enjoys the comic, they’ll get to keep going another 3 minutes, and if the crowd is still enjoying the comic, they’ll get another 3 minutes. The trick to this show…the comedians need to do their best to perform CLEAN. Meaning, no swearing or blue material.


February 27            Comedy U CLEAN COMEDY NIGHT –FILMING

Some of the best comics that performed clean sets during the 4-7-10 will be invited to return to Comedy U and perform 7 minutes their best clean sets, to be filmed by NELLA MEDIA GROUP.
