About The Show
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. FOU has blended this wildly popular piece of Japanese culture with their own hysterical style of improv comedy to create BATSU! 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, a female owned and operated since 1967.
Purchase VIP tickets to enjoy the best seats in the house, a carafe of sake, and a souvenir BATSU! Hachimaki which entitles the wearer to random shots of sake all night from our Sake Ninja.
Ages 21 and up.
1531 North Wells Street, Chicago, IL 60610
