■ What is “Society Manzai King”?
A competition that has been held since 2019 with the desire to establish ‘comedy as a ‘hobby’ for working people’. It is a
competition to solicit entries from adult comedians from all over the country, judge them by professional comedians and broadcast writers, and decide the most interesting adult comedians in Japan.
In recent years, the number of adult comedians has also increased, and this year there were 191 entries, surpassing last year’s 158. ■ What is a “social entertainer”?
The qualification to participate in the tournament is that all unit members are “members of society”. Not only professional comedians but also students, office workers, teachers, system engineers, etc. This year, many unique comedians participated, such as the duo of Saga prefectural government officials, “Kyo mo Saga Biyori,” and “Mugen-tei Animal Square,” who performed comedy in animal costumes.
