Recently the emcee of the G20 in Osaka, Katsura Sunshine’s Rakugo
comes to Times Square. Called the King of Kimono Comedy, Rakugo is the 400-year-old Japanese traditional art of comic storytelling, currently there are only 800 Rakugo Masters. Hailing from Canada, Sunshine is the only Western Rakugo Master in the world and star of NHK Worldwide, he is hilarious, charming, universally funny and yet so very Japanese. Sunshine is the perfect performer to bridge the gap between the East and the West, in a hilarious style.
With a minimal set, Katsura Sunshine's Rakugo
features a lone storyteller dressed in kimono, kneeling on a cushion, using only a fan and a hand towel for props, entertaining the audience with a comic monologue followed by a traditional story.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, performances are suspended until further notice.
Starring Katsura Sunshine
Show Times: Thursday and Saturday @8pm
