Read our comedy profile of Yuriko Kotani and see her live in London

Yuriko Kotani, comedy, press 2015

Who? A 34-year-old newbie comic from Japan, now based in London, who’s been on the circuit for just over a year.

What? Kotani uses her low-key outsider perspective and skewed logic to dissect London living, from strange posters on the Overground to the untranslatable Britishism of adding ‘-ish’ to words (we put the ‘ish’ into ‘British’, you could say).

Why? Her wonderfully offbeat stories have earned her places in the final of a bunch of new-act comps, and she’s storming the open-mic circuit with her rug-pulling punchlines and bizarre observations.

Where? You can catch Yuriko Kotani at Angel Comedy, Thursday May 21 2015.
