Especially the upper comicsUpper manzaiIt's called (Kami ga Tamanzai).

Manzai performers are generally called "manzai masters", but the notation "manzai family" is used in.[3].

Basic format and configuration

Manzai is basically a performance in which the performer speaks as "the performer himself" and tries to evoke the laughter of the audience by the flow of the conversation, and in that respect, some role or stage setting is disguised or simple.SetsPresented byControlDifferent from[4].

It is often performed by two people, but there are also examples of three or four people.About the upper limit of the number of peopleAkio Aiba"Isn't it reasonable to have five or six people?"[1]".

Since it is based on a simple conversational body, it is suitable for the individuality of the performer.mimicryIn the story, "No matter what you do, you are allowed[1]It is a free performing style.It is possible to handle a wide range of subjects such as daily life, popular culture, political economy, etc., and it is possible to change the material finely and greatly according to the times.

Bokeh and Tsukkomi

Manzai is basically "Blur"When"TsukkomiIt consists of two roles.Derived from the classic hurrays "Saizou" and "Tayu" respectively[5].

"Bokeh" is a role that is expected to invite the laughter of the audience by making jokes, incorporating obvious mistakes and misunderstandings in the topic, and performing actions that invite laughter.The blur is originallyBokehWas called.What was called "Tsukomi (role) / Toboke (role)" in each introduction at the performing arts later changed to "Tsukomi / Toboke" → "Tsukomi and Boke".[Source required]

"Tsukomi" is the role of pointing out the mistakes of blurring at key points and presenting the audience with laughter.It was called "Shin" during the Meiji and Taisho eras.[6]..In addition to pointing out verbally, Tsukkomi may replace it by hitting somewhere on the blurred body with a flat hand, back of hand, props, etc. (dotsuki), or kicking with a foot.Minoru AkitaPaper[Source required]According toEgg shop dragonBut"Soga storyThe beginning of Tsukkomi is the interaction with the substitute taiko drummer when singing.

The division of roles between bokeh and tsukkomi is not always fixed, and some combinations use a development in which bokeh and tsukkomi naturally switch depending on the flow.[5]..For example, in response to the joke of the role of bokeh, the role of Tsukkomi "knocks" without tsukkomi, that is, the art of temporarily synchronizing with the bokeh, and after knocking to some extent, inserting the tsukkomi and adding punch lines (Nori Tsukkomi) And so on.For this reason, it is appropriate to think of bokeh and tsukkomi as a conceptualization of interaction rather than a "role."

In the trio manzai (when the role is fixed), the ratio of 2 blurs and 1 tsukkomi is the mainstream.Depending on the division of roles of the material, a small blur that pretends to be (described later) may be classified as a "small blur", and a person who has a large blur that reaches the punch line may be classified as a "large blur".


In addition to the above role, "Muscle pretending[7]"Or"freeOne of the members must play the role of advancing, developing, and converting the composition of the material. "DaijisenThe "Tsukomi" section of "Tsukomi" is defined as "a manzai, a role that mainly advances the story of blurring," and defines that Tsukkomi is responsible for pretending, but there are also combinations in which blur is in charge of pretending. Not a few.

Assuming a combination in which blur and tsukkomi are fixed, there are three possible combinations: a combination in which tsukkomi progresses, a combination in which blur progresses, and a combination in which both blur and tsukkomi progress.

Manzai style

In his own book, Manzai was classified into the following 4 categories and 10 species.[8]. Manzai's tricks and stories have specialized or combined any one of these ten elements.

Comic Manzai

It is a type that has become popular since Heisei, and both the blur and the Tsukkomi can be used as the role set with the costume and standing position as it is, and the manzai who exchanges the blur and Tsukkomi.Comic ManzaiCalled.In many cases, only one of them will be useful, or the same situation will be repeated to create a unique tempo.The feature is that you can put more bokeh than the control, and you can take advantage of the fact that there is no set or disguise.

In some cases, the story of Tale Mansai is diverted as Tale Mansai, and in some cases, the combination that performs Tale plays the story of Tale as Tale Mansai.

About changes in names and notations

As mentioned above, the notations of "manzai" and "manzai" were basically used until the early Showa period until the modern name "manzai". In January 1933 (Showa 8), in "Yoshimoto Kogyo Tsushin" published by the advertising department newly established in Yoshimoto Kogyo, the notation in the advertising media of Mansai and Mansai and the signboards of theaters is "ComicIt was declared that the name would be changed, emphasizing the difference from the previous Mansai and Mansai.As of March 1932 (Showa 7), the Yoshimoto Kogyo Department has already announced that "Yoshimoto Kogyo"Partnership companyIn the in-house materials when it was reorganized into "Manzai", the notation "Manzai" is used as a business item.[30].

There are various theories about the background to this notation change and the inventor.

  • Yoshimoto Kogyo solicited a public call for the name of "new manzai" by Entatsu Achako (Entatsu Achako himself called it "two-person talk" when it was first formed.[31]). Proposals such as "humorous control", "humor hurray", "modern hurray", and "smiley question and answer" were gatheredTetsuhiko HashimotoHowever, he was not convinced by any of them, and he himself devised the name "Manzai" by changing only the kanji notation.[32]..In addition, Hashimoto joined Yoshimoto after the reorganization to Yoshimoto Kogyo, and there is a contradiction with the above materials.
  • The godfather of "Manzai" was not Hashimoto, but the general manager of the company at that time.Hayashi MasanosukeThere is also a theory that it is.After Hashimoto left Yoshimoto, Masanosuke said, "I devised it" and "I proposed it to Hashimoto."[30].
    • After the death of the forest,Ryuji SawadaAsked Hashimoto if the godfather of "Manzai" was Hayashi, and Hashimoto replied, "If that person said so, that would be the case." Sawada said, "History belongs to a powerful person. I thought I was informed that it was. "" If you live as long as Mr. Shonosuke Hayashi, there is no one around you to argue with you, so you have done everything yourself, "he said.[33]..longYoshimoto New ComedyAlthough he has been in contact with Entatsu Achako in the literary club, he has denied Masayuki's theory.[30].
  • Teiji KojimaWhile taking the Hashimoto theory, the reason why the notation of "manzai" spread and became established,1934(9)May 43 days from TokyoShimbashi TheaterIt is used as an advertisement and introductory article for the "Special Manzai Tournament" held in Japan. At that time I was in charge of Tokyo YoshimotoHirotaka HayashiTells Kojima that Hirotaka, a writer who is an entertainment lover,Shin HasegawaHe said that he decided to make a full-scale unification of the notation after holding the same box office.[31].
