NEW YORK CITY’S LONG RUNNING HIT BATSU! STAGES CHICAGO PRODUCTION
BATSU!, the comedic and interactive game show that has run for six years in New York, and was named one of the “Best Things to Do in NYC” by CBS NYand dubbed “Really Funny!” by The New York Times is now playing in Chicago with a local cast, in an open ended engagement. BATSU! Is being presented at a favorite Chicagoland dining spot, Kamehachi, 1531 North Wells Street, and continues to shock diners with its quirky, Japanese game show style.
Hailed as “Gonzo” by the Chicago Tribune and described it as “the most mildly perverse, alcohol fueled, comically salacious fun one could hope for” by Third Coast Reveiw, BATSU! is not your ordinary dinner theater entertainment. Four warriors compete in comedic challenges to avoid electric shocks, paintballs, a giant egg-smashing chicken, and many more hilarious jaw-dropping punishments that were called “Hilarious” and “Cringe-worthy” by DNA Info Chicago. The cast of BATSU! are members of the acclaimed comedy group Face Off Unlimited.
If you’re looking for a night full of surprises, non-stop laughs, and a one-of-a-kind show, this is it! BATSU! which means “punishment” in Japanese, has been a huge hit in New York. The show became a cult favorite, with audience members returning multiple times. BATSU! is a production that audiences will never forget!
A full menu/bar will be available and audience members may enjoy sushi and sake, while the bravest sign up for a chance to participate in BATSU! themselves. The show was hailed as one of Thrillist’s “20 Fresh Date Ideas” in New York, and is a perfect night for birthday celebrations, an office outing, date nights, and those who are bored with the typical dinner and drinks routine.
