Absolutely Normal - Melbourne Fringe Comedy

Absolutely Normal - Melbourne Fringe Comedy

Welcome to the quirky and hilarious world of Showko. Growing up with a dual personality mother in the kookiest culture on earth, she escaped into her own fantasy world by making and talking to puppets. Now it’s her job.

Showko Showfukutei is a Japanese comedian, ventriloquist and professional Rakugo performer (Japanese traditional comedy). Showko’s off-beat sense of humour has seen her blend traditional Japanese performance with standup comedy to create a unique and delightfully funny hybrid. Add storytelling to the mix and the occasional bit of ventriloquism and you know that you are in for a hugely entertaining show.

Armed with stories from her slightly odd childhood and her adventures around the world as a globetrotting comedian (London, Edinburgh, Paris, LA, Tokyo), Showko will give you a glimpse into the craziness that exists just below the surface of Japan that most foreigners never get to see.
As heard on ABC radio. As seen on Australia’s Got Talent.
The world may be crazy, but Showko is absolutely normal.
