Japanese game shows are notorious for resembling live torture, and now all you sadistic souls can try your hand at surviving one at Batsu!, a Japanese-style game show in the basement of the sushi restaurant JeBon. Presented by the comedy troupe Face Off Unlimited, the evening, with host Kenji America, includes impossible challenges performed by the pros of Face Off, as well as you—with free beer and prizes for the winner and severe punishments (electric shocks, being shot at by paintball guns) for the losers. If you do want to participate, you’ll, of course, have to sign a waiver. They’re not messing around.
Mon., Jan. 9, 8 p.m.; Mon., Jan. 16, 8 p.m., 2012
