Your Hood’s a Joke: Asia Debut

7:30pm – 10:00pm
¥1,500 (advance sales)¥2,500 (on the door)

One of the world’s hottest roast shows is coming to Tokyo and it’s MY hood vs YOUR hood.

After a sold out run at Just For Laughs, Yuk Yuks, and the World Famous Comedy Store (LA), Tokyo Roast Battle and Stand-Up Tokyo are proud to bring the Olympics of sh*t-talking to Japan.

The creator and original host Danish Anwar will come from Toronto to MC and 5 international headliners will be flying in from all over the world (Europe / North America and Asia) to compete with Tokyo’s best.

The format is simple. Two comedians square off and represent thier country, town or neighborhood. The jokes are all original, and all vicious. Previous participants include such luminaries as Russell Peters, Tony Hinchcliffe, and Joe DeRosa.

For this show the team have invited back an all-star squad of killer international comedians that have headlined Good Heavens over the past year and delighted Tokyo audiences.

Shibuya vs Saitama
UK vs Canada
Florida vs California
Mexico vs Puerto Rico
Japan vs Kenya
Montreal vs Boston
