Chino LaForge and Friends at The Highlands Comedy Show


Meet Chino LaForge, Hawaii’s award-winning and charismatic comedian currently touring nationally and working out of the heart of Hollywood.

A proficient performer, Chino has amused audiences since grade school, whether as an actor, singer, musician, dancer, doing improv or entertaining friends. Focusing his attention to stand up over the last decade, he’s been making waves and he’s just getting started.

In 2010, he assembled a motley crew on Maui to form Power Up Comedy, a production company that manages talent and produces high-quality shows with local and national acts. Early on, he shared the stage with such stars as Rosanne Barr, William Shatner, Paul Rodriguez, Aziz Ansari, plus toured with Steve-O of MTV’s “Jackass.” Chino earned “Maui’s Best Comic” nods from 2013-15, shined on nearly every Hawai‘i stage, produced countless events, and enjoyed time as a local radio and TV show personality. He was also the sole comedian selected from Maui to participate in the national Maui Comedy Festival in 2014, and shared the bill with such greats as Tig Nitaro, Ari Shaffir, Eddie Pepitone, Craig Robinson, Greg Proops and many more.

You’ll also see Charlie Sawyer who is traveling with Chino as his feature act. We are happy to have the touring comic duo along with another traveler, Jesse Nicolaus from Chicago plus Priscilla Spangler from right here is Denver.
