Give It To Me Quick

8PM DOORS – Therefore, 8.30PM SHOW START – Henceforth, 10.30pm SHOW FINISH (LATEST) – Naturally, BAR OPEN VERY LATE – As usual, 1500¥ INC DRINK – So the saying goes, THIS SHOW IS ENTIRELY IN ENGLISH – And finally, TOKYO COMEDY


What’s Going on?

With Japan being one of the main constituent parts of Asia, Stand Up Tokyo are a major part of the Asian comedy scene. We’ve hosted headliners from Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, and Shanghai, where our latest visitor plies his trade.
We know Ben is one of the best up-and-coming comics on the continent. Therefore, we trust that you’ll love what he’s got. Here’s a little information to get you ready.
Ben Frank is an American stand up comedian based in Shanghai, China, who has headlined comedy clubs around Asia. He also frequently performs alongside prominent international comedians. These include Kurt Metzger, Kyle Kinane, Mark Normand, James Adomian, and Dwayne Perkins. Ben has been a top headlining comedian at Kung Fu Komedy in Shanghai, mainland China’s first full time comedy club. Ben’s act is full of original and hilarious observations about modern society, dating, and the experience of being an expat in Asia. When Ben isn’t doing comedy, he works for the National Basketball Association (NBA), primarily developing NBA-themed attractions in China.


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. Obviously, when you go to watch a Stand Up Tokyo comedy show, you get all this and more!


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 an international headliner and local support. So, 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.
