In Japan, batsu means "punishment" and the batsu-game is a form of comedy competition where the losers are forced to endure hilarious and outrageous penalties. The performers of BATSU! are members of the acclaimed New York comedy group FOU, who have blended this wildly popular piece of Japanese culture with their own hysterical style of improv comedy!
Four warriors compete in comedic challenges to avoid electric shocks, paintballs, a giant egg-smashing chicken, and many more hilarious and jaw-dropping punishments!
BATSU! Chicago will take place in the legendary Kamehachi in Old Town. Female owned and operated since 1967, Kamehachi is Chicago’s original Sushi Bar.
