With a minimal set, Katsura Sunshine's Rakugo features a lone storyteller dressed in kimono, kneeling on a cushion, using only a fan and a hand towel for props, who entertains the audience with a comic monologue followed by a traditional story.

Recently the emcee of the G20 in Osaka, Katsura Sunshine’s Rakugo comes to Times Square. Rakugo is the 400-year-old Japanese traditional art of comic storytelling, and currently there are only 800 Rakugo Masters. Hailing from Canada and called the King of Kimono Comedy, Sunshine is the only Western Rakugo Master in the world and star of NHK Worldwide. He is hilarious, charming, universally funny and yet so very Japanese. Sunshine is the perfect performer to bridge the gap between the East and the West, in a hilarious style.
