I had a really good time in Fresno! The audience is amazingly supportive as usual! I felt goooood! I hope they felt gooood, too! Also, all lady comics are funny and friendly. My favorite gal is Ann Martinez Allen. She has hilarious materials about her body and doesn't hesitate to joke about herself at all! Despite of her killer set, Ann says that she is not doing comedy for money, just for fun! I was stunned by the fact that very talented people are hidden like her! At Teazer World Tea Market, I received a free gift card, so I got 4 organic chocolate bars. My childhood dream came true! Funny ladies with chocolate and tea! My sweet memory in Fresno!
This Friday, Feb 6th, I'm visiting Fresno, CA to join an all-lady stand-up comedy show! I love performing in Fresno, because audience members are very supportive! And they are fun!
Come to Comedy Night with a Teaze if you are around!

A silent comedy movie, Sumo Girl Episode 3, "Lunch Time" is updated today! This time she goes to a grocery store... Have fun!
P.S... For non-American audience, the pink bottle is a popular liquid stomach medicine in U.S.A.
Sumo Girl episode 2, "Training" is updated today! I had to postpone updating it for a week, because I had a sudden audition last week for a new TV show that made my schedule crazy... However, finally here is new episode. I created new title thumbnail! Yes, this time Sumo Girl hangs out on the beach. Enjoy!
My new web series, Sumo Girl 01 "Up Time" is up on Youtube now!
I'll upload new one every Wednesday. It took for one and half year to finish this project! I'm so glad that I can share this funny movie with every one!

A hysterical clash of cultures! Two performers, Kazumi Kusano, a Japanese female stand-up comic and Michael Naishtut, an American actor who has lived and studied traditional Japanese performing arts, join forces. By making fun of cultural differences between Japan and America, the duo show that human foibles are universal. Laugh at a series of comic scenes from traditional Rakugo storytelling and the 600 year old Kyogen theater, to the modern 2 person Manzai stand-up and a short Konto comedy sketch. Meet an exotic Geisha, a strict Karate master, Samurai, Sumo, thief, detective, conman, and even a monkey! (Length: 60 MIN)
I'm excited that I moved on to semi-finals! Come and cheer me!
