Re: SAKU SAKU

Well, it's always good to hear about new shows, but this Saku Saku strikes me as very much just applying puppets and processed voices to the rather stale evening TV formula of scripted (but improv-style) comedians, celeb guests, "laugh pyramids" (ie the boss comedian or host has a group of lower-status, younger comedians who laugh in exaggeratedly loud voices at his jokes, as part of their apprenticeship), etc.

It's not about making stuff or using your imagination. The only thing it trains you to do is appear on one of those comedy variety shows, really. Or be grilled by a boss whose jokes you're obliged to laugh at.

Re: SAKU SAKU

BTW the "laugh pyramid" phenomenon is by no means confined to Japan -- British comedy entrepreneurs like Chris Evans use it.
