They say the squeaky wheel gets the grease, but Yuriko has spent her life making sure she doesn't stick out.

Born and raised in Japan, watch Yuriko walk the tightrope of cultural differences as she embraces her individuality in her hit debut hour.

BBC New Comedy Award winner 2015. Time Out's One to Watch. As seen on Russell Howard's Stand Up Central, Pls Like (BBC3) and Big Juice (Channel 4).

'Somosomo' was The Guardian's recommended show and 2Northdown's Top Ten Picks.

"A brilliantly performed, well-structured & wonderfully unique set" ***** Fringebiscuit

"A must-see full of heart, passion and laughs" **** Broadway Baby

"A superb show that leaves the audience feeling inspired and hopeful" **** Wee Review

"...genuinely hilarious and I will never look at the term 'ish' in quite the same way again" **** Clownstar

"pert intercultural comedy as Kotani becomes “Britishnised”, and some slyly spiky feminism, while her glee at deploying the puns and sarcasm native to her adopted country is infectious" - Guardian
