Caucasian superstar comedian Atsugiri Jason has begun his whirlwind comedy circuit of Italy – aptly naming the tour “Why Roman People!?”
The live performance began awkwardly with Atsugiri’s classic “Why Roman people!?” gag falling flat amongst a large majority of the audience.
Atsugiri tried the foolproof one-liner again but with a slight twist, saying it even louder.
“Here is one, here is two, here is three, okay I think I got this… whoah!”
“Why Roman people!!!!!?”
The Italians were not amused and one bloke started pitching tomatoes at Atsugiri.
“I don’t get it, in Japan I just yell this shit out really loudly and people laugh – seriously what the hell is wrong with Italians?” said Atsugiri after the show.
Atsugiri is considering cancelling his remaining four “Why Roman people!?” tour shows.
