“The carefully crafted and funny anecdotes left a warm aftertaste. It is the birth of a reliable writer. 』
Mr. Matayoshi’s comment will be posted in the obi of “Do you have to continue to work as an entertainer like this?”
After graduating from university, while aiming to pursue a career in comedy, Pisto Jam, a comedian who broke up with Kogaken, who was his partner in the duo, turned 20 years into his career without achieving a breakthrough. As an idol event MC, he is an entertainer who has enthusiastic fans. Therefore, only part-time job experience is really abundant.

A series of stories, etc… From a mysterious job to a part-time job, a shocking incident at work, among the occupations that easily exceed 50, the episodes engraved in his memory are spelled out.

■ Comments from the author
A part-time job that I had to do in order to continue being an entertainer and to live.
This book contains interesting episodes and surprising incidents that happened during those many part-time jobs.
All comedians who are not selling are desperately working part-time to continue as comedians.
It can’t be helped because it’s a path I chose myself, but there are times when my heart seems to break.
However, comedians live strongly by talking about failures at part-time jobs on stage.
I wrote this book with the intention of doing a solo live on my 20th anniversary.
I would be happy if as many people as possible pick it up and laugh at it. pistol jam
