Yose theater is a traditional form of Japanese entertainment and provides an oasis from the whirlwind of change in society today. While it is common to find many different kinds of performances today, Suehirotei respects traditions from centuries past and brings the flavor of past generations into comedy and variety shows for today's audiences. It is said that Tokyo is the home of rakugo, a comedic form of storytelling featuring a single performer, while Kyoto and Osaka are the birthplaces of manzai comedian duos. However, of the 18 yose sets during the day and 18 at night, about 11 are rakugo, while the remainder feature manzai comedy duos, kijutsu magic, kyokugei acrobatics, zokkyoku folk singing and more. The tradition continues to live on and develop, with new great yose performers emerging all the time.
