ROR Comedy is a standup comedy collective based in Osaka, Japan and one of the only stand-up comedy venues in Asia. Despite being known as Japan's 'Comedy Capital', Osaka had no English-language stand-up comedy group until 2011, when ROR Comedy first burst onto the scene.
Since then, the group has performed sold-out shows throughout Japan, including Tokyo, Nagoya and Okinawa. ROR Comedy received the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 Kansai Scene's Reader's Choice Award, and ROR performers have won multiple awards including London's Comedy Cafe New Act Competition and the Seoul International Comedy Competition.
ROR Comedy has also brought a number of award-winning international acts to audiences in Japan, with Josie Long, Adam Bloom, Phil Wang, Yuriko Kotani and Steve Hofstetter among those to have featured so far. More star headliners are lined up for the months ahead - keep an eye on our homepage for details!
ROR Comedy performers are also available for corporate events and private functions. Contact us or give us a call for any inquiries.
We host a weekly open mic night, where ROR regulars try out new material, and budding comedians
(or drunk people) can get their 5 minutes of fame in front of a friendly and forgiving audience.
