What is

Japanese comedy is comedy unchained. Wacky and irreverent, tenaciously deep dive, and always fresh as sushi. It knows no borders nor boundaries, broad-minded comedy for the digital age with roots in the cultural tradition of “Manzai” dating back to 1,000 A.D. Second only to anime, comedy or "Owarai" in Japanese is one of the country's most celebrated forms of homegrown entertainment. From sidesplitting stand-up performances to variety shows featuring weird skits and pranks to extreme competitions challenging mental and physical skills, comedy in Japan is truly, madly, deeply unforgettable.
