Rakugo storytelling dates from the Edo period in Japan (1603 - 1868) and is still a popular form of entertainment. The storyteller remains seated throughout the performance, relying on their skill as a storyteller rather than props or scenery. The humourous stories are based on warm-hearted human drama or farcical comedy.
Katsura Utazo is a professional Rakugo performer from Japan. He took his apprenticeship under Katsura Utamaru and started doing opening acts for him in 1992.
