Batsu! is a live Japanese game show in which four competitors participate in a variety of comedic challenges: avoiding electric shocks, paintball guns, a giant egg-smashing chicken and other hilarious, jaw-dropping trials. Hosted by former Japanese child star Brian Walters and the beautiful Noriko Sato, Batsu! is full-contact comedy. All performers in the show are members of the acclaimed comedy group Face Off Unlimited, and the performance takes place in a cozy underground lounge/theatre in NYC's Little Tokyo. A full food and drinks menu is available during the performance, and audience members enjoy sushi, noodles and sake as they watch the show. Viewers can also participate to win free beer and prizes. The lighthearted diversion is great for groups.
