1. a comic dialogue [act]
    Manzai is a type of stand-up comedy where two performers hold a comic dialogue in front of an audience. The comedy duo consists of two distinct roles: the boke, or fool, and the tsukkomi, or straight common-sense man. Funny social and political satires related to newsworthy goings-on of the day are among the favorite subjects of manzai. Kamigata manzai, characterized by rapid-fire dialogue in the Osaka dialect, is popular with both young and old. These comics acts can be enjoyed at vaudeville-type theaters, as well as on radio and TV.
