Nininbaori

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nininbaori (二人羽織り?) is a Japanese comedic act where two people wear the same large coat (haori) and pretend to be one (hunchbacked) person. One person is the "face" and the other is the "arms". Humor arises from the arms never being coordinated with the face.

This type of skit is considered a staple of Japanese comedy, traditional[citation needed] and modern, and is commonly used as a part of comedy shows; both live stage performances and Owarai (television comedy).

Use in the media[edit]

  • In manga I"s, Ichitaka and Iori are made to perform a nininbaori act.
