What to Expect

RAKUGO

A form of stand up comedy where a single performer will sit on stage with on props but a Japanese fan and a handkerchief and proceed to tell a story (playing all parts himself), and at the end of the story the punch line is dropped.

MANZAI

Classic Japanese stand up comedy, with its roots in the 1000s but didn’t reach its present day form until shortly after World War II. The form is comparable to the West’s “Funny man & Straight man”. Where one comedian is making ridiculous remarks and sentiments, and the other comedian pokes holes in his logic and makes him look like a fool. Acts are performed on stage, with no props.
