Kamaka tells original short stories in Hawaiian Pidgin English and performs with a solo guitarist as well. Here is what one reviewer said about his show:
“This is an offering from a sharp, professional comedian and talented story teller replete with a full cadre of supporting wits and players. This is a genuine musical presentation with a generous serving of funny stagecraft. What a delight they are. He and his musician friend weave a tuneful spell between stories of childhood thrills, vivid memories and unique adventures. All this from the perspective of soothing country life in sleepy Hawaii. Music is played. Philosophy is exchanged and native wisdom shared. And the music! If anyone in the audience does not like the soothing instrumental of a solo acoustic guitar they are "soul deprived" and seriously humor impaired.”
He also produces his own “Comedy Luau” shows several times a year featuring a rich ethnic cast of comics.
