(C12) KOBANASHI Japanese Comic Joke Telling Competition

Telling a good joke requires not only a good mastery of wordplay, understanding of some cultural or general knowledge but also the ability to deliver a punch line effectively. More importantly it raises awareness to be mindful of the diverse background, knowledge level, interests, attitudes, values and belief of the audience.

Show your talent in telling a joke by performing one of the 5 KOBANASHI stories in a 1-minute video. Don't forget to include your witty self-introduction too!
