New York Improv Japanese Game Show 'BATSU' Touring Chicago

by Dave on May 13 2016 |


In what can only be described as a live Japanese game show while you eat some grub (there are plenty in Japan but a rare find in the states), 'BATSU,' which is the Japanese word for Punishment, premiers at the Sushi Bar Kamehaci (1531 N. Wells) in Chicago's Old Town neighborhood June 16th. Be sure to check out the video below to see if this is your kind of fun!

Four warriors compete in comedic challenges to avoid electric shocks, paintballs, a giant egg-smashing chicken, and many more hilarious and jaw-dropping punishments! The performers of BATSU! are members of the acclaimed comedy group Face Off Unlimited, dubbed "Really Funny!" by the New York Times, and also regularly appear on television, film, and stage.

The Chicago stint beings June 16th through September 8th. You can purchase tickets here at around $25.50 a pop, which does not include food. See you there!
