Good Heavens Comedy Club – Magners Comedy Competiton Heat #1¥1600
What is it?
Our flagship Tokyo comedy show, all in English every Wednesday; featuring some of the best of Tokyo’s comedy talent as well as up-and-coming stars. We’re here to make you laugh with a skewed look at life in Japan, and an international perspective seen from the eyes of comedians hailing from every corner of the world. When you go to watch a Stand Up Tokyo comedy show, you get all this and more!
IT’S A VERY SPECIAL COMEDY SHOW!
This week, we’ll be enjoying a takeover from the Magners International Comedy Festival who will be holding the Tokyo heats of their Asian comedy competition here at Good Heavens, and the first night is on Wednesday! You can come along and see Tokyo’s comedy hopefuls doing their best five minutes. It will be a great show and we’ll e joined by international judges Ben Smith (US comedian), Lenne Hardt (legendary fight announcer) and Aidan Killian (Irish comedian based in Bangkok, who will also be doing a headlining set). Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind event!
Where is this Tokyo comedy paradise?
The show is held at Good Heavens bar – known for their thirst quenching fine drinks, excellent British food (believe me, it is possible!) and plenty of tables from which to enjoy a night of English-language comedy. Not only that, but of course the best Tokyo comedy, all in the surroundings of the uber-hip Shimokitazawa area.
How do I get there?
Just jump on either the Inokashira Line from Shibuya or the Odakyu Line from Shinjuku, either way, it’s just a 5-7 minute ride. Make sure to get the express if you can, the fastest way to get to Tokyo comedy!
Who could I see?
Great acts such as Hannibal Burress, Eric Andre, Yuriko Kotani, Phil Nichol, Matt Okine, Phil Wang and Steve Bugeja have popped up on this stage so you never know who you will see! But laughter is guaranteed with our amazing Tokyo comedy shows.
How much is it?
1500 yen incl free house drink for 8 or more comedians. It’s a real bargain! Also, make sure you try the tasty pub food from the Good Heaven’s staff! We have lovely fish and chips to enjoy while you’re watching the rising stars of Tokyo comedy. We are proud to say the event is no-smoking, but you can smoke outside the venue during the break in the middle.
