Kimoi!

Japanese stand-up show Enta no Kamisama has produced its fair share of superstar comedians. One of the most popular at present is Kameko Nobuo, who bounces around stage in a ridiculously tight spandex shirt waving gold pom-poms in the air before telling the audience some decidedly kimoi (disgusting or gross) things.

I haven’t been able to add Japanese subtitles to any of Kameko’s YouTube videos (anyone know if it’s possible?), but even if you don’t know what he’s saying I think the general kimoiness of his character shines through in this clip:

    1) (0.33) Maybe it’s about time I got myself a change of clothes..?

    …into a swimsuit with high-cut legs!! (Kimoi! Kimoi!)

    2) (0.48) I have loads of confidence in the words I would use to propose to someone…

    Why, you ask..? Because my mum told me them!! (Kimoi! Kimoi!)

    3) (1.10) Isn’t my stomach great?

    I’ve seen better videos of him in Japan - the jokes here unfortunately don’t translate too well! Still, a pretty funny act. Have you seen Kaneko? (The schoolkid). He cracks me up!

  2. Ah! I didn’t read your post carefully and thought you hadn’t been able to translate it! ^^; Oh well…

  3. Mike,

    Thanks for the translations (saved me a job!), and yeah, Kaneko is great! I should write a post about him as well.
