Japanese Aussie

Winner of Directors’ Choice Award (Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2023)

Winner Directors’ Choice Award 2023 Melbourne International Comedy Festival

Japanese Boy Takashi has lived in Australia for five years. He is getting more Aussie, but he is still so Japanese. The more Aussie he becomes, the more he loves Australia. The more he loves Australia, the more he wants to write jokes about Australia. This show is about a Japanese boy who tries to show you his understanding and love about his favourite country – Australia. Big bow. Arigato.

As seen on the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala, Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow and Comedy Up Late.
