Golden Week Stand-up Comedy

8:30pm – 10:30pm
¥1,500 (on the door)

Golden Week is a magical time; a time of vacations, of spending time with family, of relaxing from work. A time of great craziness and upheaval, a time of queuing and lines around the block, of packed-full trains and expensive plane tickets. A time of …. stand up comedy?!

Yes that’s right. Golden Week is a perfect breeding ground for comedy material. The frustration, the misunderstandings, the close proximity to others. Japan will make a mockery of us and we MUST laugh about it!

We find that every year the jaded, the lost, the financially limited and the terminally unbothered flock to us for light relief. This year will be no different. Come and laugh with us!

This week we have guest Carly Baker, a UK comedian based out of Amsterdam who runs some amazing shows there in Holland, plus a host of local heroes of comedy. We hope to see you there!

The show beings at 8.30pm with doors opening at 8pm – tickets are only available on the door and include a drink.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.

    Mottainai Flea Market

    As the name suggests, this little market is all about reducing waste and wastefulness—the perfect antidote to Tokyo’s shop-till-you-drop culture. It’s a good place to pick up snazzy secondhand clothes for cheap-cheap, as well as DVDs, CDs (remember those?), books […]
