Award-winning cross-cultural sketch comedy series. Created by Japanese-American Atsushi Ogata, and inspired by fish-out-of-water mishaps from his own life, the show muses on living in different countries and getting your identities mixed up.
With a cowboy hat, Japanese “yukata” (casual summer garment) and rapid-fire tongue, Yukata Cowboy drifts across the U.S., Japan, and Europe. In each country Ogata tries to fit in, but the more he fits in, the more he is mistaken for someone else.
In all this chaos, he struggles to find his own voice. In the series of 2-3 minute episodes, Atsushi plays all of the characters, as well as Yukata Cowboy. His observations translate into something more universal.
