演出簡介 | About the Performance
The program features two manzai segments, a Q&A on food issues, and an improvised bedtime song. Through three different forms of comedic expression, it aims to provide the students and faculty of NCCU with a diverse and enjoyable manzai experience.
Manzai(漫才) is a style of Japanese comedy comparable to stand-up comedy and similar to xiangsheng(對口相聲) in Chinese comedy. It traces its origins back to the traditional performing art of banzai(萬歲) and gradually evolved from the Kansai region into a widely popular and time-honored style of comedy in Japan. Manzai performances are typically carried out by a duo, where one person plays the fool (boke) and the other delivers witty remarks (tsukkomi), deriving humor through their interactions and character dynamics. The works of Dacon .come(達康.come) follow the traditional manzai form and style, but infuse the essence of Taiwanese languages and cultures into manzai so that audiences can more easily relate manzai comedy to their everyday lives.
Q&A with Da and Kang is a highly interactive and unique sketch that involves the audience in a discussion about various issues related to food, illustrating the manzai creative logic in improvisation. The show concludes with an improvised bedtime song played by Kang Kang(康康) on the guitar, which, again, focuses on issues concerning food, providing a delightful end to the entire program in the whimsicalness and absurdness of the lyrics.
