After a seven-year absence from Hawaii, one of the best stand-up comics around, Dom Irrera, makes his return.
He’s fitting in a visit to Honolulu’s Pipeline Cafe in between a gig at the Playboy Comedy Club at the Palms in Las Vegas and an appearance at the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal.
Nominated six times for an American Comedy Award, Irrera honed his stand-up material in a multigenerational Italian household in South Philadelphia with his mother, sister, grandmother, uncles and cousins all under one very big roof.
When he’s not on stage, he presides over the “Supreme Court of Comedy” for DIRECTV, where litigants with real disputes are represented by stand-up comics.
» Where: Pipeline Cafe, 805 Pohukaina St.
» When: 8 p.m. tomorrow
» Cost: $20 general admission, $40 VIP priority seating
