The Comedy Concept of Japanese Manzai

By George @ledonvinton

Manzai

Manzai is a Japanese comedy stand up which involves two acts instead of one.  One of the performers acts normal and the funny or crazy one.  The goal is that both are trying to create a joke out of an imagined situation like a customer calling to order pizza and there’s some sort of misunderstanding with the order.  I’m sure anyone can imagine how that can be made into something funny.

I’d never seen anything like it before and the ones I saw looked to work pretty well but what do I know.  It doesn’t make sense if I don’t understand what they’re saying.

 

Here are two Americans using the concept in a stand up.
