London, are you ready? Warriors, are you ready? Long, long ago, in the Land of the Rising Sun, four Warriors used the power of laughter to capture Batsu no Akuma, the Spirit of Punishment, within a sacred gong. Now the evil spirit has once more emerged in London and the Comedy Warriors must rise again! 

BATSU! Is the hit underground show created in New York and Chicago, where comedians compete to avoid electric shocks, paintballs, a giant chicken, and many more hilarious, jaw-dropping punishments.

Don’t miss this eclectic game of punishment and honour as it makes its way from across the Atlantic to London audiences for the first time ever. Get ready to immerse yourself in the bacchanalian world of BATSU!, where anything can happen.

£8 Hachimaki Headband Upgrade

Upgrade to purchase your hachimaki headband and receive a surprise visit from the SAKE SHINOBI!! Available online and in person at the box office. Band A tickets includes a hachimaki band in the ticket. 

What is a Hachimaki and what happens if I buy one?

The hachimaki is a Japanese headband – imagine Karate Kid, but BATSU! style. These headbands, worn in Japanese culture as a symbol of effort of courage, are yours to take home. If you wear your hachimaki to the show you will receive two visits from the sneaky SAKE SHINOBI to deliver you two sake shots. BATSU!
