Pleasure- B has been an established clown troupe since 1994.
As of 2009 we had 45 active members. We are an unique performance group due to the fact that we are the only clown group in Japan.
Our headquarters are in Nagoya, Japan but we bring our laughter and fun to the whole country.
Pleasure B performs on the stage in Nagoya, as well as, children's theaters, kindergartens, Theme Parks, special events, shopping centers, and Wedding Halls to name a few.
The yearly performance with all active members is regularly sold out due to the popularity of the show.
Individual and small group performances have become equally popular .
We perform from our desire of wanting you to know the clown and the power of laughter. Pleasure B sponsors workshops
for children who want to learn the art of juggling and pantomime. Pleasure B also has a free workshop to help the clown to be get started.
