Gamarjobat, A Shut Up Comedy From Japan

Review in Issue 17-4 | Winter 2005

Gamarjobat are a highly popular mohawked marvel of a physical comedy duo from Japan. This show opens in a typical street theatre performance style of entering and re-entering, enthusing the audience to clap more loudly each time, and continues in this vein – for example, with orange balls being regurgitated by one of the duo attempting to upstage the antics of the other. A later and longer part of the show jumps into a comic book version of Rocky, Japanese style, with rapid-fire visual gags and huge physical dexterity. They’re dynamic, they’re cute, they’re skilled, fun and funky, and charm the audience into enthusiastic standing ovations.
