Wikipedia definition
2. Manzaiis a traditional style of stand-up comedy in Japanese culture, which usually involves two performers (manzaishi) —a straight man and a funny man—trading jokes at great speed. Most of the jokes revolve around mutual misunderstandings, double-talk, puns and other verbal gags. In recent times, manzai has often been associated with the Osaka region, and manzai comedians often speak in the Kansai dialect during their acts.
