Kyogen (狂言) is comic theatre, which normally accompanies Noh (a style of theatre older than rakugo, and in a broad sense includes kyogen). Unlike rakugo , which is its own artform, it was created as an intermission act.[1]

Characteristics of kyogen

  • Kyogen is similar to Western plays but only comic in nature.
  • Makeup etc. is used in kyogen, unlike rakugo.
