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'.
At their monthly Improvazilla show in Harajuku, talented improvisers act out scenes based on suggestions from the audience, and every show features an entire musical (!). Whatever the theme, you'll always get an energetic affair packed with action, romance and more.
