What is ROR?

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 firstburst 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 and 2017, Kansai Scene's Reader's Choice Award in 2016, and ROR performers have won multiple awards including London's Comedy Cafe New Act Competition and the Seoul International Comedy Competition.
