Hawaiian comic Kehau Jackson has been a presence on the South Australian comedy scene since her arrival in Adelaide from Honolulu in 2002. She entertains corporate, sports and comedy club audiences across Australia.
A regular performer at the Adelaide Fringe festival, Kehau was a founding member of “Titters!” an all-female comedy showcase that won the 2007 People’s Choice award and went on to become a Fringe staple. In 2011, she co-starred in the Fringe hit, “Three Stuffed Mums” with fellow ‘Titters!‘ cast mates, comics Kate Burr and Maggie Wood. The show surprised and delighted stand-up comedy fans with the addition of original songs and music written by the cast. The “Mums” enjoyed sold out shows and great reviews and was nominated for another People’s Choice award, one of only five shows out of the 745 in the festival to do so. The ‘Three Stuffed Mums’ was also nominated for a Curtain Call award from the Adelaide Theatre Guide as Best Comedy for 2011.
Kehau’s stand up career has seen her hired as the opening act for a range of talents from music superstars Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Hall and Oates, to Australian comedians Fiona O’Loughlin, George Kapiniaris to international stars like Steven Wright and Weird Al Yankovic. Besides performing, Kehau is an experienced MC in a variety of settings, and also produces comedy shows at clubs and venues around Adelaide and in country SA. She is a regular on the comedy circuit, has been seen on the Comedy Channel, and can be heard as a recurring guest on ABC 891 with Peter Goers. Kehau has produced shows at five consecutive Adelaide Fringe festivals, and continues to teach comedy workshops with Country Arts SA.
