The Pirates are an improvisational group performing in English and Japanese. Our shows are different evey time we perform as we create and personalize each show based on audience suggestions. Improvisational comedy is a popular comedy style in North America and Europe and is starting to become well-known in Japan. The Pirates are helping lead this movement through our extensive work with clients like the US Embassy, ConnectUSA, and the Australian Society of Tokyo.
The Pirates have many friends across Asia and love meeting up with them on tour. Since 2011, the Pirates have been spotted at festivals and shows in Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, Manila and New York City.
The Pirates of Tokyo Bay (POTB) are the Kanto area's ONLY bilingual improv comedy group. POTB is the sister group of the Pirates of the Dotombori (POTD) which was founded in 2005 in Osaka, Japan. The Pirates perform around Kanto but have been known to travel down to the Kansai area for shows with their sister group. Look for our FREE English only shows, or stop on by one of our bilingual full length shows each month in Ebisu. We hope to see you in the seats in the future!
