More about Rakugo
Rakugo, as performed by the seasoned Shinoharu Tatekawa, is a traditional Japanese sit-down comedy with as much laughter appeal as local stand-up comedian, Fakkah Fuzz. Despite dating back to the late 18th century, the comedic stories knows no bounds in inciting peals of laughter amongst an international audience in this day and age.

Shinoharu himself was so spell-bound by this art form the first time he watched it that he took off from his corporate job to pursue performing Rakugo!

Donning a kimono with a paper fan and a tiny handkerchief, Shinoharu entertains through animated story telling not simply as a narrator but through acting out the roles of each character with vivid expressions, all whilst kneeling on the stage. The characters can be diverse, ranging from being a zookeeper, a samurai, a teenager, and even a lion. Are you curious as to how he pulls this off? Read our review of last year’s performance and interview with Shinoharu here.

Experience this highly entertaining performance for yourself, get tickets at $25 for both the Japanese (12 Jan) and English (13 Jan) Rakugo shows on Peatix Peatix.
