Ever since Roast Battle Tokyo started, it's brought to the city's comedy fans a succession of riotous sold out shows, entertaining them as Tokyo's best comedians have traded body-blows with jokes as savage as they're hilarious.
July 15th sees the first New Faces show, bringing to the stage of the recently opened Tokyo Comedy Bar comedians who have been performing for some time, but who are new to Roast Battle. We know they're funny when they're nice, but can they bring it when they're mean?
Nothing is sacred, and no holds are barred, as the next generation of brutal battlers vie to join the top league of insult comedy bruisers.
Tokyo Comedy Bar is on Wave-Dori in Shibuya, immediately next to Mark City, just half a minute from Shibuya crossing or the Inokashira line station.
Doors open at 7:00pm, and the show starts at 8:00pm. Early bird advance tickets are ¥2000, until 8th July, after which tickets will cost ¥3000.
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.
