Japanese Game Shows

Japan has some crazy game shows. They tend to be part game show, part talk show, and part slapstick comedy. Many times they involve some kind of physical stunt that designed not only to challenge the contestant, but also provide belly laughs for the home viewer.

I found one of the funniest I’ve ever seen on YouTube here. The clip is called “Human Tetris,” although I think that’s an English pseudonym. Understanding the language is not required to enjoy the clip.

Also be sure to catch this hilarious Japanese game show parody from Saturday Night Live.
