The first Western Rakugo Master, Katsura Sunshine, returns to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe following a sell-out shown last year with a new one-hour show of Japanese comic storytelling – in English! With only a fan and hand towel for props, Katsura Sunshine’s hilarious, fast-talking narrative is singularly Japanese and universally funny. His kimono comedy crosses cultures, whether you are eight or 80.
