You know you just have to get tickets when an international act that your partner really likes comes to town?
So thats what I did, and I did it as some sort of a surprise for her.
Her: “So what we we watching?
Me: “Some random “street performance, might be interesting”
I was just anticipating her squeals when she finds out its GAMARJOBAT in the flesh! Before I continue..
Gamarjobat (Japanese: が〜まるちょば) are an award-winning comedy performance group comprising two Japanese comedians, Ketch!—who sports a red mohawk—and HIRO-PON—with a yellow mohawk. The duo perform a variety of sketches, including mimes and physical comedy.
Back to my surprise,
Her: “We can’t go in there, I think there’s an event”
Me: “Really?” *Whips out tickets to usher*
Her: *Looks at tickets*
Me: Primary objective met, moving on to secondary, getting a good seat!
The famous GAMARJOBAT briefcase!
What followed was an almost two hours non stop hilarity in every GAMARJOBAT sense. Honestly i wasnt expecting too much having seen most of their videos and all but are they full of surprises or what? The audience participation factors heavily in their shows and this one is no different. I am impressed at people getting up, play acting, making sounds and all.
GAMARJOBAT is tops I tell ya. Physical comedy in all its mohawk glory! There are few performances that I actually care about, I can be hard to please. However GAMARJOBAT ranks highly in my books, the other being CIRQUE DU SOLEIL’s.
I’ll leave you with video of their performance, note that it’s only a glimpse of the full show! So loosen that belt and enjoy the preview! Watch with the volume up cos they are really hilarious!
