IN PERSON

Takashi Wakasugi Stay Home Stay (Japan Boy Stuck in Oz) (JPN)

Japan’s quickest comedy import, Takashi returns to Melbourne Internationa Comedy Festval with his brand-new show!

Typical Japanese boy Takashi moved and stuck in Australia. COVID-19 destroyed his comedy life. But he had a girlfriend. She is Australian and originally from Perth. He decided to move to Perth with her just before national lockdown. This was a very lucky decision because Western Australia was one of the safest places in the world. But in Perth he stayed at his girlfriend's place with her parents. For nine months. Nine.

This show is about a Japanese boy living with an Aussie family together in Corona time. He experienced so many unknown and unexpected things in Australian family life. He had some wonderful times and tough times. His girlfriend broke up with him (of course). No government support. Could not see parents. But he still loves Australia. Big bow. Arigato. 

'Truly a show worth seeing and sure to lift your spirits. ★★★★½' Everything Adelaide

'You can’t help but fall in love with Takashi’s demeanour. ★★★★' The Fourth Wall

'Wakasugi is funny, clever and insightful. ★★★★' ArtsHub
