There’s no cover to attend this evening of laughs, emceed by Michael Pulliam. Featured stand-up comedians include Kathy Collins, James Shoemaker, Curtis “Chino” LaForge, and Corky. Café Marc Aurel continues to display the artwork of Anne Provost featuring the collage portrait, “Kathy Collins—Tita—Memorabilia Table,” or perhaps try out your own comedic verse at Gallerie Ha’s Aloha Poetry Slam. For those who just want to party, check out Maui-based acid rockers, Mojomana (7:30pm, no cover), also at Marc Aurel, the local jams of Hawaiian by Nature, hosted by Maui Thing, and Sweet Spot who will play at the Banyan Tree Park.
