The Pirates of Tokyo Bay, Japan’s bilingual improv comedy group, is honored to join forces with the University of Pennsylvania’s Basser Center, to put on a charity comedy show in Tokyo where all proceeds go to the Center’s breast cancer research. Ticket details here.

Show details: 
Sunday, August 13th
6:30pm at What the Dickens in Ebisu

Every year the Pirates have put on cancer charity shows supporting Livestrong Japan, Over Cancer Together and as the Pirates brand grows, the group is continually looking for more ways to give back to the community. We are using what we do best, improv comedy, to bring smiles to those involved with the serious fight against cancer and we couldn’t be more honored to do so.

In our last show, our 3rd annual cancer charity show, with the support of our fans we donated over ¥30,000 to CancerNet Japan.  It was a fun show with a special piano performance by Mayu Toyama and the entire show was in honor of Tony, our friend and fan.  Thank you to everyone who supported this show as we do our part to support those living with cancer.  We "got your backs" everyone.

先日行われた第3回チャリティー公演で3万円以上をキャンサーネットジャパン(CNJ)に寄付いたしました。トニーさんに贈るショーとして遠山麻繭さんに歌っていただき、私たちも皆さんに笑いと喜びと、心のスマイルの花を咲かせました。がんへの知識を高めていくという素晴らしい活動へ参加できたこと、そして忙しい中お越しいただいた皆さまへは本当に感謝いたします。ありがとうございます!
