The Tokyo Comedy Store is the Big Mikan's only on-going live Improv and stand-up comedy group. While most shows are in English, the TCS gang also wow the locals with monthly Japanese-language performances

Roppongi's Cars is the newest venue for the TCS's Improv group which bares up under the name Until Further Notice. This amalgam of mayhem includes: handsome founding member Chris Wells; actor, narrator and all around sensitive guy Michael Naishtut; actor/narrator Paul Lucas; writer Monty DiPietro; thespian/vulgarian Lenne Hardt and web geek meek Nick Cook. Musical accompaniment is provided by the dancing fingers of Rachel and the lovely, multi-talented Nishi-chan.

The brand-new Car Crash Comedy Night careens onto the big stage at Roppongi's Cars 03-470-5944 every Wednesday night, and the admission price of only 1,500 yen includes one drink.

Stand-up and Improv shows are also held in both English and Japanese at Shibuya's Club Asia 05458-5963 on the last Sunday of every month. Stand up comics include the uproarious Cloudy B.-- Australia's cultural ambassador and an alleged hamster killer, Canadian hockey legend and balladeer Herb Irving, Dave "Cubby" Carter (who is in no way affiliated with the military), and a gaggle of others.

The TCS funnybone-ticklers also perform most Mondays at Dr. Jeekhan's in Shibuya (3476-7811). In addition to performances, there are on-going workshops in which TCS members reveal the myriad secrets of improvisation techniques. These priceless, time-tested secrets have been passed down from the masters - unfortunately they were passed down to Michael Naishtut, but the TCS director does still remember a few of the best ones.
