Manzai

Manzai- Comic dialogue  漫才

video


This is a kind of vaudeville performance in which two comedians as a team make spectators laugh by their humorous verbal exchanges.
主に2人の芸人が1組になり、面白おかしく言葉をやりとりして観客を笑わせる寄席演芸の1つ。

The singing and dancing that once served to celebrate New Year changed into a vaudeville performance, and in the early part of the Showa Period (1926-1989) became dialogue-oriented.
新年を祝う歌舞が寄席演芸に変化したもので、昭和時代(1926-1989)初期に対話中心になりました。

Compared to comic storytelling (rakugo), manzai is contemporary.
落語に比べ漫才は現代的です。

The two comedians divide their comic roles and entertain the spectators with the skillfulness of their humorous, ad-libed exchanges.
2人がこっけいな役割を分担し、やり取りの面白さやアドリブの巧みさが客を楽しませます。

Like rakugo storytellers, manzai artists appear regularly on television variety shows.
落語家と同様、漫才師もテレビのバラエティー番組で大活躍しています。
