(Spy 06) Yoshimoto = Osaka

Thank you to my teammates.

吉本新喜劇 Yoshimoto Shinkigeki is an established, well-known sketch theater in Osaka. Many famous comics performed here in their younger days, including Matsumoto and Hamada from Downtown. In fact, a variety show called "Lincoln" recently filmed an episode where Downtown and other popular comedians took the stage at the Shinkigeki and semi-improvised their way through a sketch. It had been almost 20 years since Downtown last did a show there, and you can see they were awfully nervous.

The show, which features many veterans, tends to recycle their "one-punch-line" jokes over and over in recycled plots each week. But I suppose that's what the audience (mainly older folks) enjoy. The material is really safe and never too over the top.

Amazingly, the show runs twice daily and three times on the weekend. It's televised locally (Osaka/Kansai Area) on Saturday and Sunday.

Having grown up in Osaka, I know a lot of the "recycled" jokes and it's hard to believe some have been around for more than two decades (maybe more). One of the things you notice as you watch this clip is how the cast members fall to the ground in reaction to someone telling a joke or delivering a punchline. Falling down is expected and actually completes the whole joke.

On a personal note, when I'm back in Japan and I happen to catch this show on TV, it first makes me realize it's the weekend and second, that I'm back home.

Following guests who appears in this sketch show are the regular of the "No Laughing" series but not the regular at the aforementioned Yoshimoto Shinkigeki.

今夜が山だ Konya ga Yamada - Real name is David Hossein(sp?) He has a Japanese blog page here

前田美波里 Bibari Maeda - I wrote about her here


Panzetta Girolamo - a celebrity born September 6, 1962 in Avellino, Italy. He lives in Japan and has been on Japanese TV starring in everything from dramas to cooking shows. He has also made appearances in fashion magazines. He owns a restaurant called "Ristorante Giromondo" in Gaienmae. Panzetta was the voice of the Italian car in the Japanese version of the American movie "Cars". He is also the author of several books and essays. (From Wikipedia)


田中将大 Masahiro Tanaka - He's an ace pitcher for the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles. He's known as "Mah-kun," "Mah,"and "Mah-san" among his fans.

梅宮クラウディア Claudia Umemiya - Wife of actor Tatsuo Umemiya. They have both appeared on the past three "No Laughing" series. She is now known for her awful acting and for always forgetting her lines.

The following two people starred in the "No Laughing" series for the first time this year:

Mr.マリック Mr. Marikku - Celebrity magician

キダ タロー Taro Kida - A long time song writer/TV personality/Radio jocky.

I wrote about Jimmy Ohnishi (ジミー大西) in prior posts. You can read about him here.

  23. Thank you for your morally resources.

    As for me, I'm going for the full version, once it's out, hence i have question Shibata. There have been many discussions and conversations, about, will there be some subfiles for the "HD-Spy", or are you just gonna time the "SD-Spy" version?

    Anyhow, I'm grateful for the other Batsu Game's, and you brought me Japan a little bit closer.

    My highest regards.
