When it comes to satisfying Tokyoites' cravings for stand-up comedy in English, nobody does it better than the good folks at Tokyo Comedy Store: they've been making us laugh for over two decades now, and run a city-wide performance series that includes some kind of show practically every week. In addition to a crew of regulars, their talent occasionally includes international guests from the English-language comedy meccas of the world. And they can hardly be accused of taking themselves too seriously – one of the Comedy Store's taglines is 'Funnier than you think we'll be'.
Two hosts and a handful of Tokyo's finest comedians combine for a standup show like no other at Gamuso, a comfy venue with nice seating and a no smoking policy during the show. Bring a drink from the bar downstairs and join the fun.
