New York City's live Japanese Game Show has become an “East Village Sensation!” (Asian Fusion Magazine)

Four warriors compete in comedic challenges to avoid electric shocks, paintballs, a giant egg-smashing chicken, and many more hilarious and jaw-dropping punishments! The performers of BATSU! are members of the acclaimed comedy group Face Off Unlimited, dubbed "Really Funny!" by the New York Times, and also regularly appear on television, film, and stage. BATSU! takes place in an underground lounge theatre in NYC's "Little Tokyo.” A full menu/bar is available and audience members enjoy sushi and sake, while the bravest may even sign up for a chance to participate to win free beer and prizes!
