The Funnies

A native of Hawaii, Kehau Jackson is a stand-up comic, writer and producer based in Adelaide, South Australia. She has been a regular on the local and national club scene since her arrival in 2002.

In 2007 Kehau was a founding member of the women's comedy show "Titters!" which sold out the 2007 Adelaide Fringe Festival and won the People's Choice Award. In 2011 she along with two other women comics wrote and performed 'Three Stuffed Mums' which included original music as well as stand up comedy. The show sold out two seasons at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, toured for 2 years including performances at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and was nominated for Best Comedy by the Adelaide Theatre Guild. From 2015 Kehau has been a featured performer on cruise ships to the South Pacific and Asia, and was one of the first comics back onboard when cruising resumed post pandemic in June 2022. Besides continuing to entertain in clubs, pubs, community and sports venues, Kehau pens a quarterly column for the e-magazine 'Aloha' which services the Hawaii ex-pat market on the U.S. west coast. She has co-developed comedy courses for at-risk women in rural areas, and continues to lend her comedic talent to fundraisers for women's health issues.

"...comedy legend Kehau Jackson brought a joyful take on modern-day politics to the stage with her dry humour. From her commentary on stupid people to her solution for Australia's slow COVID vaccination roll out, Jackson generated laugh after laugh. It was disappointing she could not be afforded a lengthier set..." - OzAsia Festival Special Comedy Comedy Special 2021.
