Report: English Stand-up Comedy Show in Asakusa, Tokyo “My Japanese Perspective” [Vol. 255]

Have you ever seen a Japanese guy telling jokes in English in Tokyo? 
If the answer’s no, 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 24 November I did my 255th show so far. 

Tonight there were 5 audience members. They were all from America and Canada. They are all anime and manga lovers.
They came to Japan to join the Tokyo Comic Con!

What’s Comic Con?
Starting out as the Golden State Comic Book Convention in 1970, it was first organized by Shel Dorf and a group of San Diegans. Today, Comic Con is an event encompassing technology and pop culture. The San Diego Comic Con (U.S.) is a huge annual event in early July, attracting more than 130,000 visitors by showcasing a large range of elements; comics, animation, games, and movies. Nowadays, comic conventions are a big business and they garner a huge amount of public attention, holding recurring shows not only in American cities, but with franchised events held in France, the United Kingdom, and Japan.

The audience for my show was really kind and absolutely amazing. Rather than me just telling jokes, it became a really interactive comedy show. They focused on my performance throughout, and they gave me good ideas for the future.

If you are looking for night entertainment in Tokyo, please come to my comedy show! Let’s make fun of Japan together!

Report: Guest House Comedy Night! English Stand-up Open Mic & Meet-up [Vol. 74]

It was a fun night!

We organize this stand-up open mic event every two weeks at Little Japan, located in Asakusabashi. Cheerful people from all around the world (this time NZ, UK, France, Indonesia, Thai, Taiwan, and Japan!) gather together each time in the cozy atmosphere of the hostel.

Participants each take turns talking in front of everyone. Some of them are used to doing stand-up comedy, and others not so much, but everyone enjoys their time sharing and making people laugh.

In Japan, stand-up comedy or open mic nights are not yet very popular. Japanese people love talking and laughing with colleagues or friends while drinking and often make fun of themselves or others, but not in front of an audience.

We (Funny Japan Project) are trying to spread the culture of stand-up comedy or open mic nights to everyone in Japan, not just for people who want to become comedians.

When you stand up and try to make everyone in front of you laugh, you can turn your bad luck or shortcomings into comedy! It’s like magic… It gives you a chance to create something positive from not so pleasant memories, instead of just being caught up in the situation.

Normally we tend to avoid expressing negative emotions, but actually, it helps to decrease tension!

Laughing and making people laugh is good for your health!

Report: Guest House Comedy Night! English Stand-up Open Mic & Meet-up [Vol. 73]

Hello, everyone.
The Funny Japan Project had an open mic stand-up comedy event.
Guest House Comedy Night vol.73, held at Little Japan in Asakusabashi on November 10th, 2019.

Usually, about 15 people join this open mic event, but the organizer, Meshida, forgot to promote the event on Facebook and Meetup… So just 4 people came.
We all decided to do a comedy workshop instead, and we discussed our new jokes and got feedback on them from eachother.

We had non-comedian come – an Indian guy who was staying in the hostel (the show is organized in the hostel’s bar).
We made a joke for him.

“Great Britan colonized India for 200 years.
They are not good at colonizing.
Because Indian people still can’t speak English correctly.”

Next time I will definitely promote the event on social media and Meetup, so I hope many people come to the show!
If you want to try to do stand-up, please come on down and share your stories!

Check out here for the next event!!!
