OFFICIAL COMEDY WEEK SHOW!
NYC's live Japanese game show has become
an underground "East Village sensation!"
(Asian Fusion Magazine)
In Japan, batsu means "punishment" and the batsu-game is a form of comedy competition where the losers are forced to endure hilarious and outrageous penalties. Face Off Unlimited has blended this wildly popular piece of Japanese culture with their own hysterical style of improv comedy to create BATSU!
Hosted by Japanese child star Brian "Bu-Chan" Walters, with the help of the beautiful, yet merciless, Noriko Sato, BATSU! is full contact comedy! Four warriors compete in comedic challenges to avoid electric shocks, paintball guns, a giant egg-smashing chicken, and many more hilarious and jaw-dropping punishments! The performers of BATSU! are members of acclaimed comedy group Face Off Unlimited (who the NY Times has called "Very Funny!") and can regularly be seen on national television, radio, commercials, and Broadway.
BATSU! takes place in a cool underground lounge theatre in NYC's "Little Tokyo" - St. Marks Place. A full menu/bar is available and audience members enjoy sushi, noodles, and sake, while the bravest may even sign up for a chance to participate in the show to win free beer and prizes!
BATSU! is one of the "Best Things To Do In NYC" (CBS NY) and is perfect for birthdays, office celebrations, a night out with the ladies (or fellas), bacholorette parties, and for those out of town guests looking for something you can find ONLY IN NEW YORK!
Doors open at 7:30pm for dinner service - Please arrive prior to 7:45pm
