Award-winning cross-cultural sketch comedy series about living in different countries and getting your identities mixed up. Created by Japanese-American film director Atsushi Ogata, inspired by fish-out-of-water mishaps from his own life. With a cowboy hat, Japanese “yukata” (casual summer garment) and rapid-fire tongue, Yukata Cowboy drifts across the U.S., Japan, and Europe. In each country, he tries to fit in, but the more he fits in, the more he is mistaken for someone else. In all this chaos, he struggles to find his own voice. In the series of 2-3 minute episodes, Atsushi plays all of the characters, as well as Yukata Cowboy. He portrays people’s lives in other countries, focusing on common, everyday details such as stairs, elevator or bicycles. These observations translate into something more universal, similar to Jerry Seinfeld’s stories about lost socks and dryers.
