I love these old skits. But does anybody know what happened to these old friends/cast members of Downtown,except for Itao? Cause Yamasaki,Jimmy,Endo,Tanaka are somewhat their new team after this team,right?Lastly, what is Heipo's actual job in Gaki? :))Thanks again Zurui and Co.!
Hey JC,I think the original cast didn't make the move to Tokyo along with Downtown and stayed in Osaka. Kurano was Itao's partner in "130R" so I'm not sure about him as Itao seems more a soloist now. Ryoko Shinohara is now a popular singer/actress. YOU is still acting in dramas and such, as well as appearances on talk shows from what I've seen. Higashino and Imada I'm not too sure. Higashino was in "Ashita Ga Arusa" drama as well as Fujii Takashi who also has Matthew's Best Hits TV. I think Heipo's actual job is Director but I'm not too sure.
Thank you Zurui,Is the cast then more popular in their time that the cast now in this time? :)And why did they moved from Osaka to Tokyo?Regards!
JC,I don't think the cast back then were as popular as the cast now. Back then, they were basically popular in the Kansai area only. That is probably the reason Downtown decided to move to Tokyo, to get more exposure to their type of comedy. But I think that the cast besides Downtown didn't have enough of a following or weren't popular enough to make it "big" like Downtown did.
Thanks Zurui! Learned a lot. Yeah, i think Downtown is really special. :))
Western Wedding? They got sure Gaijin Smashed :)!
a very odd and great ep as well as Matsumoto being odd as per ussh and adding to zurui's answer to JC's 1st question Imada ended up hosting a talk show called FUN for a short time then he disappeared from our radar...
They made "Gottsu" and "Gaki" in Tokyo. Imada and Higashino (they are called "W kouji" sommetimes) are very useful MC and respected by their owarai jr's now, because they survived Downtown's severe demands and have real skills trained by DT. W kouji are hosting show "Yarisugi koji(やりすぎコージー)" at TV tokyo and each one is hosting many variety shows also. Matsumoto and Imada hosted show "Warai no jikan(わらいのじかん)" about 2000. Kurano is in "Yoshimoto Shinkigeki(吉本新喜劇)" almost, sometimes TV.
@Anons,Thanks for the info!
Sanran is one of the best eps. Thanks so much
