: The entertaining art of Japanese storytelling
RAKUGO is the Japanese traditional form of entertainment similar to stand-up comedy. A RAKUGO entertainer will perform solo, without using large props, or extravagant costumes. The humor is created through the use of the voice and facial expressions to share a funny and memorable story. The performer uses simple props like a folding fan or small hand towel to represent objects in the story.
Don’t miss it! Take advantage of this rare opportunity to see the only professional non-Japanese performer of English RAKUGO!
