Surreal characters drop into this Sushi Counter for mindfulness tips and ridiculous Sushi therapy
One-Night Sushi Stand is a new restaurant owned by Showko and assistant Sushi Master. Little did they know that their humble restaurant is a magnet for surreal and eccentric customers with problems. In their attempt to heal them, Sushi Master prescribes them his silly sushi therapy while Showko dishes out her unique blend of mindfulness tips and Japanese food-related beliefs. All the customers who find themselves at One-Night Sushi Stand are special and bizarre characters. Imagine Mighty Boosh meets Midnight Diner via the Muppets. A ventriloquist puppet situation comedy by Showko.
