Energy can never be destroyed — it only changes, so Chad Kukahiko’s reminds us in his one man show Leprechauns and Lies as the show is an energetic examination of life in a comedic and audience involving fashion.
FromWashington,DC, toSalt Lake CitytoHonolulu, from childhood, to school house, to church, to the present moment, this journey takes you back-and-forth through the mind and times of a Mormon-raised Hawaiian. The performer explores the universe and soul that might make you question your thought process and sanity. Kukahiko uses song, story, a unique dance, comedy, and music — and that all spices a lot of truth. He implores physics, the metaphysical, spiritual, logic, innocence, current events, and soul searching on his journey with the audience to a freeing experience.
Kukahiko somewhat reminds you physically and in style of Rob Reiner’s Meathead character, Archie Bunker’s key rival on All in the Family, son-in-law Michael.
