Regular Cast

Downtown


Masatoshi Hamada

* Date of Birth: May 11, 1963
* Birthplace: Naniwa, Osaka
* Raised: Amagasaki, Hyogo
* Family: Wife (Actress, Natsumi Ogawa) and two children
* Hobby: Golf
* Manzai Role: Tsukkomi
* Nicknames: Hama-chan, Hamada the Super Sadist

The tsukkomi of 'downtown'. His name is derived from the 17th century poet Masahiro Toshida. Hamada was born in Osaka to Kengoro and Nobuko Hamada. In fifth grade, his family moved to Hyo-go where his father opened a paint store. There, he attended Shio Elementary School and met Hitoshi Matsumoto. He and Matsumoto would not become friends until junior high. Not knowing what to do after graduating, he took an exam to become a motorboat racer at his father's suggestion, which he failed. After that, Matsumoto invited Hamada to join him in his dream to become a comedian. He started his career in television by doing ads for Suntory beer and brandy, even though he does not like alcohol. Contrary to his intimidating persona, Hamada is proper and well-mannered off screen, and has been praised by Matsumoto for being a devoted father. He is often spotted in public with his family, and every New Year's, they vacation to Hawaii. He has been in a few movies, but most recently did the voice of Shrek for the Japanese dub for the animated series.

Hitoshi Matsumoto

* Date of Birth: September 8, 1963
* Birthplace: Amagasaki, Hyogo
* Raised: Amagasaki, Hyogo
* Hobby: Driving, Billiards, and Games
* Family: Single
* Manzai Role: Boke
* Nickname: Matchan

The boke of the duo. Matsumoto remains single and has not showed any interest in marriage. He has stated in an episode of LINCOLN that he dislikes children. He prefers dogs. At the age of 17, he met with the emperor of Japan after having been hospitalized at the Osaka General Hospital. This has left a deep impression on him, although he is rarely seen talking about it on Japanese national television. Matsumoto is a self-proclaimed hyo-i-geinin. Hyo-i means "spiritual possession," and geinin means "entertainer." This term is said to have been invented by Matsumoto, and it refers to entertainers who can take on a personality completely different from their own when on stage or in front of a camera. He often appears on television wearing a suit and tie, with the tie tucked in his pants. Once a heavy smoker, he quit smoking in 2003. He directed, produced, and starred the 2007 movie, Dai Nippon-ji,which means "Giant Japanese".

Yamasaki Housei



Born in February 15, 1968. A comedian from Hyogo Prefecture NISHINOMIYA CITY. The belonging office is Yoshimoto Theatrical. NSC6 term life. Married and has 2 daughters. Graduated from a Hyogo prefectural Nishinomiya South High school. Currently, he is attending studies about the public entertainments activity at Rissho University psychology faculty. nick as Yama-chan, Zaki-san & Hosei-san. debuted in GnTsukai in 1995. Although his name is spelled as Yamasaki, for some people just call him Yamazaki, but he doesn't care much about it.

Coq au Rico



Coq au Rico (ココリコ), also romanized as Cocorico, is a Japanese comedy duo (kombi) consisting of Shōzō Endō (遠藤章造) and Naoki Tanaka (田中直樹). Both born in 1971 and raised in Toyonaka, Osaka, they formed in 1992 at Yoshimoto Kōgyō when Endō quit his mundane job as a salaryman and invited his childhood friend Tanaka to join him as a duo. They named themselves after a cafe in Osaka of the same name. Although Tanaka plays boke to Endō's tsukkomi, he acts as the leader, and writes all of their material. His particular brand of subtle humor went unappreciated by most comedians, until it caught the attention of Hitoshi Matsumoto of the comedy duo Downtown. In 1997, they became regular members of the show Downtown no Gaki no Tsukai ya Arahende!!, where they made their big break. In addition to starring in Gaki no Tsukai, they currently host three of their own shows: Coq au Rico Million Family (ココリコミリオン家族, Cocorico Mirion Kazoku?), Coq au Rico Miracle Type (ココリコミラクルタイプ, Cocorico Mirakuru Taipu?), and Sudden! Golden Legend (いきなり!黄金伝説。, Ikinari!Ōgon Densetsu?).

haha i had it a lot dude...
I think the best side to watch downtown is at veoh, but you have to install
the special veoh video to watch more-than-30mins video such as Suberanai Hanashi
and some Lincoln videos. Just check out this link http://www.veoh.com/users/mutoatlan

And also i find a user uploading gaki on Youtube but i don't know how long
he can survive before youtube flag him.

actually you can steal the videos here;

How to steal from Crunchyroll:
1. Download and install DownloadHelper plugin for Firefox(mozilla).
2. Browse and select your favorite video from CrunchyRoll.
3. While on the video page, you will see three colored balls flashing (on the top bar) - left click and choose the first one of the files and save it as a .flv file
