Three Weeks: Hiroshi Shimizu: From Japan With ‘Rub’ (27/08/11)

Find the original article here.

‘HEY JAP!’ the audience is encouraged to shout at mad Japanese comedian Hiroshi Shimizu, because it is, he reminds us, his nickname. He jumps into the audience and runs up and down the aisle sporadically, in between telling us the difference between the Japanese and us ‘western people’. It’s all light hearted fun and his tongue is firmly in his cheek, which is possibly why Hiroshi has such problems making the words ‘love’ and ‘rub’ sound different, but as he points out, they’re “pretty much the same anyway”. Madcap and just a little bit insane, this is one of those rare performances, especially free ones, where the comedian could say anything and have the audience rolling in the aisles. Or indeed, rorring.

Laughing Horse at The Three Sisters, 14 – 28 Aug, 8.45pm (9.45pm), free, fpp88.
