Helping Artists “Profit to SHARE!”
Hawaii Comedy Festival (HSCF) brings the tools of business to artists. Key programs include a conference-like event for actors and writers of improv and sketch comedy.
HSCF is part of Bizgenics StoryUArts Division which produces programs formulated to create a new vibrant community that connect all ages with interests in business and the arts. Programs under this division accomplish two things: 1. provide business skills to artistic entrepreneurs (writers, actors, comedians, film makers, etc.) to make sustainable careers, and; 2. leverage acting, improv and script writing skills to help business people with public speaking, team building and marketing.
StoryUArts is led by professional actor Kimee Balmilero. Kimee is a Hawaii (Kaneohe) girl turned actor with credits that include: the 3X Emmy Nominated TV Series “Hi-5,” the Original Broadway Cast of “Mamma Mia” and The National Touring Company of “Miss Saigon.” She’s currently a regular on the CBS hit show, Hawaii Five-0.
Kimee is the founder and “Head Sillypino” of Improvhi.com, a website focused on improv and sketch comedy in Hawaii. She is also the “Dean of Awesomeness” at StoryU Arts. For more on Kimee, see kimeeb.com
