COMEDIAN, VENTRILOQUIST AND RAKUGO PERFORMER
Showko is arguably the world’s quirkiest, most original, and thoroughly charming ventriloquist and Rakugo (Japanese Traditional Sit-Down Comedy) performer. Hugely entertaining and wonderfully offbeat, her combination of stand-up, ventriloquism, and Japanese traditional comedy creates a unique and hugely entertaining hybrid. Armed with a sharp wit, a keen sense of kookiness and an adorable collection of hand-made puppets it’s no wonder Showko caught the attention of judges and audience alike on Australia’s Got Talent.
Showko is a member of the Kamigata Rakugo Association, and is the only fully trained professional Rakugo performer currently living outside Japan.
She is a regular at festivals, events and comedy clubs throughout Australia and beyond. When she isn’t touring internationally or performing on luxury cruise liners, Showko calls Melbourne home.
