Ryo, from Japan, started his journey with us in April 2012 at pre-intermediate/intermediate level. Now at upper-intermediate/advanced level he has the confidence to pursue stand-up comedy (in Japanese and English) and he is hoping to return to the UK in the future as a comedian. Next week we will bid him a very sad farewell. What he has achieved in the last 45 weeks is a reflection of hard work, wonderful character and good humour.

I don’t think I could have been able to do comedy in English when I came here, but thanks to BSC Oxford I managed it, actually I made many people laugh which is one of the best experiences in my life. I will never forget this day!

-Ryo, Student at British Study Centres Oxford

Over 30 students and staff at BSC Oxford turned out to see Ryo’s performance on Thursday night. “Open mic night” at a typical English pub is how Japanese student Ryo Konishi envisaged his debut, doing stand-up comedy. There were a few technical hitches at the start but once the amp and microphone were set up, Ryo took to his own VIP stage like a ‘duck to water’. His comedy style was likened to that of British comedian Peter Kay who observes social realistic documentary. Everyone who came to support him had a good evening.

We wish Ryo the very best for the future and hope to see him on the stage in the UK and Japan sometime soon.

    Ryo’s routine was absolutely brilliant – what a legend. Well done!
    I shouldn’t be so nice, he just beat me at table tennis!
