Many of our greatest hula legends have, at one time or another, performed comic hula.
Coy and flirty one moment, and suggestive and bawdy the next, the comic hula tradition is one that has been cherished by hula aficionados everywhere.
In fact, there are now comic hula competitions within the Hapa Haole Hula Contests currently being held.
