Hilarious and Witty Stand-up
30 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

This documentary is a good showcase of what it's like trying to be an English-speaking stand- up comedian in Tokyo and the different styles of comedy the Japanese present. The stand-up comedy done by the expats is hilarious, as it highlights the ups and downs of being a gaijin (foreigner in Japan). The comedians are very intelligent and witty and poke fun at their surroundings without too much offense. Anderson's (the director/lead) comedic journey starts out shaky, but towards the end of his time in Tokyo becomes more confident and his material much funnier. I also enjoyed how the documentary has a segment on rakugo that is explained in both English and Japanese, making this 'kneel down' style comedy understandable for Western audiences. Well done. I really enjoyed it!
