Jose Dynamite first attempted stand up comedy at a talent showcase in 1999 while in college. He took another brief crack at it in 2002 when the Laugh Factory opened its doors in Honolulu. Just a couple of years later, he decided to really make an effort, and began to pursue his dream of being a stand up comedian: he hasn’t looked back since. And in 2004, Jose Dynamite was given the opportunity of a lifetime, where he gained most of his comedy knowledge and experience: working as the opening act and occasionally as a promoter for Augie T., for nearly 9 years. Within that time, he toured throughout the Hawaiian Islands, the west coast, and internationally in Guam and Saipan. He has opened for several big name artists, including Jim Gaffigan, Bill Burr, Eddie Griffin, The Beach Boys, and much more. As the owner of Comedy U Jose promotes the weekly Local Comedy Showcase every Wednesday at Blue Note Hawaii.
