In 2008, Canadian native Katsura Sunshine – 桂三輝 – became the 15th apprentice to the great Rakugo Master Katsura Bunshi VI, from whom he recieved the name Katsura Sunshine. Sunshine was the first ever Western Rakugo-ka in the Kamigata tradition ( Osaka area) and only the second in Japanese history, after his predecessor Kairakutei Brakku a hundred years before.
Sunshine has toured over 5 continents performing in 3 different languages (Japanese, English & French). He made his London West End debut and New York Off-Broadway debut in 2017 for 3 weeks run in both cities. Currently he is digitally world touring from Sunshine Studios in Tokyo.
