LAHAINA — Comic Roseanne Barr and singer Brian Evans will be in Lahaina on Friday, Jan. 15, to perform in a benefit for World Hunger Year.

This evening of world-class music and stellar stand up comedy begins at 9:30 p.m. at the Hard Rock Cafe at 900 Front St.

Crooner Evans is hailed as the next Frank Sinatra for his classic vocals.

Honored with an Emmy Award, Golden Globe and three American Comedy Awards, Barr is recognized as one of America’s greatest comedians.

She became famous in the early 1980s, as her stand up routine received critical acclaim for her unglamorous portrayal of the typical American working class housewife. From there, Barr starred in her own television series.

In 1994, Barr became the first and only female comedian to ever host the MTV Video Music Awards.

Pre-sale tickets are available at Hard Rock Cafe for $100 seat or $40 for standing room, or by visiting www.Groovetickets.com. Call 667-7400 for information.
