Surreal noir character sketch comedy.
Check yourself into the Tokyo Hotel. Take your room key, your seat and become Ben Russell’s guest as he guides you on a tour of LA’s oldest and most infamous hotel. Meet the more permanent guests or perhaps those just seeking a night’s shelter through a series of masterful sketches and comically intertwined storytelling. There’s no towels, there’s no robes or even mints… but there will be a chance to tap into your inner voyeur and find out what really happens after you check into the bizarre Tokyo Hotel.
Fresh from an international tour with The John Conway Tonight Show plus five years working with the sketch comedy institution The Second City in Chicago, Ben Russell has also featured on ABC Fresh Blood and is currently a cult favourite within Australia’s best comedy rooms.
Nominated for the Golden Gibbo award for best alternative show at the 2015 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
