Live Stand Up Comedy featuring Saku Yanagawa (Japan) & Openers @ HQ Gwangan

We’ve had some great comedy shows so far this year, and on Friday, September 28th, we’ve got one of our favorite new (to Busan) performers coming back for more laughs–all the way from Chicago/Japan, Saku Yanagawa!

In Chicago, Saku has been a regular performer at the Laugh Factory, Zanies, and The Second City. When in Japan he holds his own comedy show called Saku’s Comedy Night, written, directed, and performed all by himself. In 2017, he was named “Japan’s Comedian of The Year”.

Saku also has conducted an African tour and performed in Kigali International Comedy Festival as a headliner. And this year he performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Last time he came he had an absolute killer of a set, and this time around he’ll have a longer headlining slot. This show will have a few local openers as well–announcements coming soon!

Doors are at 9:00 PM, and the show will start at 9:30. There is a 5000 won cover–all money goes directly to the comedians to help pay for travel/hotel costs and future comedy bookings.
