Asakusa was once full of theatres like this one, where traditional rakugo (comedic monologue) and other forms of comedy are performed along with jugglers, magicians and the like. It’s all in Japanese, but the linguistic confusion is mitigated by lively facial expressions and props, which help translate comic takes on universal human experiences.
