♬♩♫♪☻(●´∀`●)☺♪♫♩♬ Welcome to my diary!
In Japan, I wonder if you come across the scenes so many times on TV comedy shows hitting the partner's head.

Why do they so rude? How about in your countries?

In the program, a duo or a trio entertain their customers with a stand-up comedy.

One say something strange, on the other hand, the other corrects it.

The roll to make a weird or comical remark is called "Boke" in Japanese, then, the person in charge of fixing or blaming it is "Tsukkomi". It is, as they are called, "Manzai" to make customers laughing as re-acting the performances, Boke and Tsukkomi alternately.

In the same way, we can say that the action beating the head is one of the performance.

By overreaction more than words, it will give spectators something big impact and work effectively to make it more lively.

Hm, humm...
OK, I knew well why they repeatedly abuse their partners with dirty words and violences. That said, ...I don't yet quite get it.
Personally, well, I can't help but saying that I wouldn't like so much that type of cultures in Japanese comedy world if it once went to an excessive behavior.

What do you think of that?
