“I’ve been some doing standup (a Thursday run at Che Pasta downtown), to tune up and memorize segues that connects the material,” said Bumatai. “When you’re on the road ? ve nights a week, it’s bang bang bang, easy; but when you’re only on once a week, it’s a little more challenging.” Bumatai has been one of Hawaii’s successful and ambitious stand-ups, mixing a Waikiki career with television specials early on, and attempting a talk-show series the last decade. He still has faith in local-style comedy and its generally low overhead vs. a musical act. Stand-ups are a solution to a bad economy, he said. “Very cheap. You hire a comic, you provide a mike, and there’s only one plane fare and hotel room, thank you. That’s why comedy is thriving again,” he said. “That’s why I’m looking (to operate) a small club, with a good stage, a spotlight, designed for comedy.” Also a “clean” act traditionally playing for families, he’s eager to see how Na Alii plays out. “What’s good about this tour is that everyone gets to see us old guys who don’t swear,” said Bumatai. “Being old and ugly can be a plus — look at Mel,” he joked.
