Mr. Tak

How many people do you know that can play a violin? How about play one behind their back? Or play one behind their back while balancing on a unicycle? Introducing Mr. Tak! Hailing from Los Angeles by way of stints in San Francisco, London, Honolulu and more, Mr. Tak has been wowing audiences all over the world with his funny, physical and fearless comedy style. Since ’97, when he was hired by Huis ten Bosch in Nagasaki to perform, Mr. Tak (real name Thomas Aaron Kurtz) has been Kyushu’s number one gaijin performance artist. And since the love of his life is Japanese, Fukuoka is his home for the foreseeable future. When he isn’t entertaining the big crowds he’s available for private parties. Tel: 092 845 2057 or visit
