Bumatai’s students
do stand-up

LOCAL COMEDIAN Andy Bumatai is expanding his involvement over at Brew Moon in Ward Centre -- in addition to his performances on Wednesday nights with Augie Tulba, Bumatai will be at the restaurant on Sundays with students from his new stand-up comedy class. The classes started on Monday with Bumatai over at the Academy of Film and Television, and students will have four opportunities starting this Sunday to perform in front of a live audience in an actual club atmosphere. Here's a great opportunity to see what could be the next generation of comedians from Hawaii. Shows run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Brew Moon; call 596-8300 for more info ...

AND SPEAKING of Augie T, take a spin by the Ward Entertainment Center sometime before 10 tonight for a chance to help out with "Lanai and Augie's 985 Minute Radio-A-Thon." The morning show duo at Island Rhythm 98.5 will spend the day in the area below Dave and Buster's and the movie theaters to help raise money for Easter Seals Hawaii ...

DID YOU KNOW it's possible to get a double dose of Hapa at Chai's Island Bistro, now that Barry Flanagan and Kelii Kanealii have each found new partners? Owner Chai Chaowasaree has done a great job with the lineup of legendary entertainers who perform at the Aloha Tower Marketplace restaurant. Jerry Santos and the Brothers Cazimero perform there regularly, and special guests are always showing up. (On Easter Sunday, it'll be local diva Melveen Leed.) But back to Hapa -- head over to Chai's tomorrow for Flanagan's night on stage with Nathan Aweau from 7 to 9 p.m. On Sunday, it's Kanealii's turn; he'll play with Bobby Ingano from 7 to 8:45 p.m. Call 585-0011 ...

AS MY FRIEND Slick Vic likes to say, "Free is my favorite f-word!" Get down to the Kapiolani Park Bandstand for a free performance by Kapena during the first installment of this year's "Aston Full Moon Concert Series." Hopefully Lanai and Augie will get enough rest tonight after their radio-a-thon; the two are scheduled to start things off tomorrow at 6:30 p.m. Hawaii's "American Idol" representative Jordan Segundo will join the lovely ladies of Keahiwai in opening for Kelly De Lima and the rest of Kapena. Best thing about this concert? It's absolutely free! Call 931-1330 for a complete schedule of Full Moon concerts at the bandstand ...
