Laughs For Lions 10 with Paul Ogata, Steve Byrne and Dat Phan

Maybe call this one “Episode X: The Farce Awakens.”

Hey, Hawaii! I’m coming back home! And this time, it’s for the biggest Laughs For Lions show yet. Catch me at Mamiya Theatre on Saturday, August 20, 7:00 PM. It’s going to be amazing with Steve Byrne, star of his own TBS sitcom, “Sullivan & Son.” With Dat Phan, Geechy Guy, Tony Calabrese, Kurt Swann and Michelle Welch also on the show. Plus, The Soup Nazi will be there serving soup (of course) and insults (naturally).

It’s only April. Why am I telling you about a mid-August show now? Well, tickets JUST went on sale and already 65% of the VIP seats are gone, as well as 35% of General Admission. So… GET ON IT! QUICKLY!!!

The pre-party starts at 5:30 PM, where your show tickets get you unlimited Continue Reading

I feel you, Anonymous Hong Kong Comic. I feel you.

We’re not supposed to condone violence in this civilized world, but then again in a civilized world these inconsiderate, show-wrecking complainers wouldn’t exist either.

I’ve noticed a trend Continue Reading

Paul Ogata: For Those About To ROFL

Stand up and be counted 
For what you are about to receive
I am the dealer 
I’ll give you everything you need
Hail hail to the good times 
‘Cause comedy’s the right of way
I ain’t no legend, ain’t no cause
I’m just livin’ for today

For those about to ROFL, I salute you!

Usually when I’m doing shows in Asia it will be for a couple of weeks at a time. Perhaps two or three countries per trip. But on this SuperTour, I’ll be hitting six countries over a month. It’s going to be an exciting run. Here are the details: Continue Reading
