Report: English Standup Comedy Show in Asakusa, Tokyo “My Japanese Perspective” [Vol. 242]

Have you ever heard jokes in English by a Japanese person in Tokyo?

If not, then you might want to check out my show called My Japanese Perspective. I have been organizing a standup comedy show for two years now, and on 30 September I did my 242nd show so far.

There were 7 people in the audience. They were from the UK, US, Canada and Singapore.

Before the show started, we met up 30 mins early for drinks. At the moment, Japan is hosting the Rugby World Cup. As you might expect, except for the Singaporeans, they all came to Japan to watch the rugby game! The British guys and Canadian woman talked about rugby all the time – while the Singaporean and American audience members asked them what the rules are. 

Then I performed for 50 mins. I told jokes about Japan! The joke that I got the biggest laugh with is on ‘blood-type discrimination’. In Japan, blood type discrimination is a thing. So I joked about it for part of my set. If you want to see that joke, you can find it on my Youtube channel. 

After my performance, we continued drinking and talking about rugby.

It was a fun night. If you are looking for night entertainment in Tokyo, please come to my comedy show!

Report: English Standup Comedy Show in Asakusa, Tokyo [Vol. 39]

Did you guys know that stand up comedy is currently getting more popular in Japan – although it’s still super niche. In Asakusa, a traditional area of Tokyo, they have an English standup comedy show once a month at Smile Bar.

The most recent one was on September 28. Nine international comedians performed for 6-7 minutes each. The comedians were from the UK, USA, Indonesia, Taiwan, Japan, Israel, NZ and Singapore.

The show was really packed, and the audience included both locals and international travelers. It was also a good chance to make some new friends, as well as watch comedy.

The legendary standup comedian Ken Suzuki told jokes about Japan.

Lie talked about what it’s like dating in Japan – and the difficulties in finding an apartment as a foreigner.

Show found out that some people don’t react well to certain jokes

Tariq entertained everyone with some very sarcastic one-liners.

Hayat made fun of life in Japan from a Singaporean perspective.

Daniel brought up discrimination against foreigners in Japan.

Ryo mainly gave some sharp commentary on China and America.

The headliner, Alex, did a set on sex tourism – from the point of a sexpat!

And the emcee, Meshida, did his best with a strong Japanese accent; But unfortunately the British part of the audience sometimes couldn’t understand him – even though he lived in London.

The next English Standup Comedy Show in Asakusa is on October 27th!
