Japanese TV is full of comedy shows. They’re mostly evening and night time variety shows that involve a lot of comedians and other celebrities, and there’s a large variety of topics and activities. Sometimes quiz shows, sometimes they show clips from overseas, sometimes they play jokes on each other. While American hidden camera shows will play jokes on the average person, Japanese hidden camera shows usually play jokes on celebrities. And many of these jokes may seem cruel. But it’s part of the job. The following are some Youtube videos from Japanese variety shows featuring some great pranks. Just one note, most have no English subtitles. Enjoy!
