For the first time, Hawai‘i audiences will get a chance to know the man behind the comedian or as Rap would say 'humorist', in Rap: Hawaii’s Comic Genius. Woven throughout the special are highlights from the characters and routines that have brought joy and laughter to generations of fans: Aunty Marialani, Fate Yanagi, Room Service, Mahalo Airlines, Willy Maunawili, and the stuttering priest, to name just a few. (Also included are scenes from newly- found home movies of Rap as a young boy performing the hula and other acts for the camera, revealing that he was destined for show business from an early age.)
Rap's comedy lives on in this amazing collection of some of his best routines including "Auntie Marialani's Cooking Show", "Room Service" and "Fate Yanagi". The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences awarded an Emmy to "Rap's Hawaii" for the Outstanding Television Special of the Year.
