☆ July, 2018 ☆
The incredibly-well received NTV serial comedy drama
“Gakeppuchi Hotel” has come to an end.
But for those of you in Japan, you can see the whole thing again,
and special new episodes, on Hulu whenever you wish!
Thanks for choosing Hotel Grande Inversao!
Chad’s first book is still out!
From NHK Publishing Inc.,
it’s a comprehensive guide explaining
how Japanese comedy works
and what makes it special.
Titled “Yonimo Kimyouna Nippon No Owarai“
(which could be translated to “Strange Tales: Japanese Comedy.”)
it’s all in Japanese…
Chad’s endeavours behind the cameras in
the promotion of comedy outside of Japan
will be featured in a 2-hour special on TBS’s
“Sakagami & Sashihara’s Tsuberenai Mise”
airing Sunday, July 29.
The film “Bokuha Iesu-sama Ga Kirai” (international title “Jesus”)
in which Chad plays the titular role,
will be in competition at the 66th San Sebastian International Film Festival.
Look forward to September in Spain,
the film’s release in 2019,
and even greater things to come from young director Hiroshi Okuyama!
