KATSURA SUNSHINE’S RAKUGO
Katsura Sunshine’s Rakugo

Summary
Katsura Sunshine’s Rakugo celebrates the art of comic storytelling and features a lone storyteller dressed in kimono, kneeling on a cushion, using only a fan and a hand towel for props, entertaining the audience with a comic monologue followed by traditional stories that have been handed down from Master-to-Apprentice for centuries.

Called the “King of Kimono Comedy,” Rakugo is the 400-year-old Japanese traditional art of comic storytelling and features a lone storyteller dressed in kimono, kneeling on a cushion, using only a fan and a hand towel for props, entertaining the audience with a comic monologue followed by traditional stories that have been handed down from Master-to-Apprentice for centuries.

Currently, there are only 800 Rakugo Masters. Hailing from Canada, Sunshine is the only Western Rakugo Master in the World. He gained international fame for his show on NHK Worldwide; he is hilarious, charming, and universally funny. Sunshine is the perfect performer to bridge the East and the West gap through laughter.
