HAWAI­IAN STEALS SHOW

Kalamunda Reporter - - News - Lynn Gri­er­son

DIMINU­TIVE Kahua Jack­son de­liv­ered a bar­rel of laughs in Com­edy Gold on tour at the Kalamunda Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre.

The funny woman from Hawaii stole the lime­light with her self-dep­re­cat­ing hu­mour in a one-night only show on Au­gust 25.

A reg­u­lar in com­edy clubs and fes­ti­vals around Aus­tralia, she had the au­di­ence on­side from the get go with her well-pre­pared act and wry take on life.

Jack­son was the only fe­male stand-up in a night of com­edy dubbed the best of Ade­laide Fringe and hosted by Kel Bal­naves.

Fringe reg­u­lar Rich Naber­hood over­played jokes about the com­monly-used ab­bre­vi­a­tion of his name, but re­prieved him­self with a side-split­ting rou­tine of men on the dance floor rou­tine that was pure gold.

The au­di­ence was hun­gry for Fri­daynight laughs and ral­lied be­hind the head­line act Ben Dar­sow, but the man said to make com­edy look ef­fort­less seemed dis­tracted.

He ap­peared to rely heav­ily on im­prov for the du­ra­tion of his per­for­mance.

On Septem­ber 30, The Voice TV tal­ent show fi­nal­ists Paula Parore and Clay Dar­ius will cover Aretha Franklin and Ste­vie Won­der in A Night of Re­spect & Won­der at Kalamunda Arts Cen­tre.

The soul­ful R&B singers formed Avida in 2014 and re­cently launched an al­bum.
