It's SUPER WEEK and BATSU! is pulling out all the hilarious and Jaw-Dropping stops in this special SATURDAY night performance of the craziest show in NYC! Super Hero themes, costumed characters, and oh so much more... Acclaimed comedy company Face Off Unlimited brings you a special event to kick off New York Super Week! Named “one of the best things to do in NYC” (CBS News), BATSU! is New York City’s live Japanese game show experience. Four warriors compete in comedy challenges where the losers face painful punishments and outrageous costumed characters! BATSU! is hosted by former Japanese child star Brian Walters and the lovely yet merciless Noriko Sato. BATSU! takes place in a cool subterranean lounge theatre in NYC's "Little Tokyo.” 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 drinks and prizes!  This very special performance just for New York Super Week will take you into the world of the underground “East Village Sensation” (Asian Fusion Magazine) that is BATSU! What better way to start off a super week than with a wild and crazy trip to Japan?! 

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!

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 all members of acclaimed comedy group Face Off Unlimited (who The New York Times has called "Really Funny!") and can regularly be seen on national television, radio, commercials, and Broadway.
