Rakugo

Rakugo is a kind of traditional comedy in Japan,
The comedian, who is called Hanashi-Ka, sits in front of the audience and talk a story.
They usually do the traditional stories, arranging some parts of them.
For example, Shibahama is a very famous one, and there are many arranged versions.
Danshi Katrura was known as the expert of the story, but there are many Hanashi-kas who play practically differently from him.
It is played in modern Japanese, and it is easier to understand than Kyogen or Nou.
