Tokyo Comedy Bar is hosting its first International Headline shows on the first weekend in June, welcoming to the stage worldwide star Yumi Nagashima!
Born in Tokyo but based now in Toronto, Yumi is an internationally loved writer, actress and comedian. She's appeared on a diverse range of shows and festivals, among them Just For Laughs in Montreal, Comedy Central Asia, and the Jakarta International Comedy Festival.
She'll be performing four shows over two nights, at 7:00pm and 9:00pm on both Friday 3rd June and Saturday 4th. She'll be headlining the regular Weekend Comedy shows, with support from the best of Tokyo's local stand-up talent.
Tickets for each show cost just ¥3000, and are available now via the Tokyo Comedy Bar website. The shows are expected to sell out, so get your tickets soon!
Tokyo Comedy Bar is on Wave-Dori in Shibuya, next to Mark City, just a minute from Shibuya Crossing and the Inokashira line station. It's a cosy, friendly venue, with craft beer on tap and live comedy almost every night.
I came to Japan from Manchester, England in 2003, and have travelled a lot since then, around Japan and in Asia. When I'm not working, I write satire and perform stand-up comedy in and around Tokyo. Check YouTube for a taste.
