What is Rakugo?

Rakugo is a form of yose (traditional Japanese verbal entertainment) originating from the Edo Period (1603–1868) as a means to entertain the everyday citizen. A storyteller sits upon a raise platform with only a paper fan and small cloth for props and tells an imaginative and comical tale.
