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.

The Friday and Saturday shows are now all sold out, but Yumi has added an extra show at 7:00pm on Sunday 5th June. She'll be performing a slightly shorter set, but will be ably supported by the best of Tokyo's local comedians.

Doors open at 5:00pm, with Happy Hour prices on drinks until 6:30pm. Tickets cost JPY2500, and are available through the Tokyo Comedy Bar website.

Getting there

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.
