Ken Shimura Height Weight Bra Size Age Biography Family Wiki Net Worth, Affairs, Marriage & much more. Ken Shimura (志村 けん, Shimura Ken) (born Yasunori Shimura (志村 康徳, Shimura Yasunori), February 20, 1950 – March 29, 2020) was a Japanese comedian. He co-starred with Masashi Tashiro, Nobuyoshi Kuwano in the Japanese variety show Shimura Ken no Bakatono-sama. The “bakatono-sama” shtick by Shimura is unusual among Japanese comedians, in that he could satirize the deeds of current guardians of the contemporary society (a company president, a politician, a family head, a school principal, the head of a Japanese yakuza gang) under the garb of a foolish king who lived in the country a long time ago. Another popular shtick of Shimura in the same show was “Henna Oji-san” who entertained himself in the company of nubile girls. After being caught for his pranks, the character regularly ended the shtick with a song ‘Sou desu. Watashi wa Henna Oji-san desu’.
Shimura was most famous for starring in Hachiji Da Yo! Zen’in Shugo! with the comedy group The Drifters and Fun TV with Kato-chan and Ken-chan with Cha Kato, another former member of The Drifters.
